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.

In this episode we are talking to Toby Philpott, one of the puppeteers for Jabba the Hutt in Return of the Jedi.

Mr. Philpott is full of incredible stories from Elstree Studios, including working with the rest of the Jabba team, as well as Carrie Fisher, Richard Marquand and more. From his early days working literally under Jim Henson’s wing to later work on Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Labyrinth and Little Shop of Horrors, we really dive into his fascinating career.
