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.)

Today on the show is my conversation with the absolutely incredible Claudia Gray, who is a fantastic author. She is responsible for so many Star Wars books, as well as so many others: Lost Stars, Bloodline, Leia: Princess of Alderaan. She also was one of the architects of The High Republic (aka "Project Luminous"), with Into the Dark being her first book in the series.

From her experiences with the saga growing up to how the relationship between her and Lucasfilm begin, as well as diving into to each of her Star Wars books, I had so much fun getting to finally talk to her!
