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, I’m talking to acclaimed, New York Times bestselling author, Delilah S. Dawson. Star Wars readers know her as the writer for Phasma, Galaxy’s Edge: Black Spire and her latest ... Inquisitor: Rise of the Red Blade.

I am such a fan of Delilah, and especially her latest book, which I highly recommend. Some spoilers abound! Read it and come on back.

My thanks to Delilah for coming on the show, as well as Del Rey Books for arranging this conversation. I cannot stress how much I recommend Rise of the Red Blade, which you can purchase here:

We have a few more episodes in the works, including my conversation with Return of the Jedi creature legend Judy Elkins.

If you’re enjoying the show, please head to Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to these episodes and leave us a five-star rating and review! It means the world.

Transcripts of previous episodes are available over at
