TALKING BAY 94 is the first Star Wars podcast solely devoted to interviews with the cast, crew and creators from a galaxy far, far away.

Join host Brandon Wainerdi (huge DVD special feature dork), for a weekly deep dive into some never-before-heard stories from the set and Skywalker Ranch. From background aliens to some of the biggest stars in the universe, TB94 will be trying to talk to them all, every Wednesday.

(And if someone has George Lucas’ cell phone number, please pass it along.)

As an incredibly special Thanksgiving treat, today I am talking to Academy Award winner Craig Barron, who not only worked on The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, but has been a visual effects pioneer for decades, beginning with his start at Industrial Light & Magic as an 18 year old.

From portraying Darth Vader to working with David Fincher, we go through as much of his filmography as possible, as well as the incredible work he is doing for the preservation of film history.

If you’re listening to this episode when it is just released, we are going to be dropping the next round of TALKING BAY 94 merch pre-orders right after Thanksgiving. So, wear your fandom for George Lucas, Rian Johnson and / or Kathleen Kennedy on your chest, with these CREDITS-inspired shirts. All proceeds go right back into supporting this show and that’s really appreciated:

If you enjoy the show, please leave a five-star rating and review. It is enormously helpful.
