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.)

Howard Kazanjian needs no introduction for listeners of this show.

He was the producer of Return of the Jedi and executive producer on Raiders of the Lost Ark (as well as uncredited producer on The Empire Strikes Back.) He is a legend in both the world of Star Wars and the world of movie-making, in general.

It is a true honor to get to talk with him about his career, from USC and Alfred Hitchcock to the Yuma Desert and forests of Endor.

We are also joined by Consulting Editor of Mr. Kazanjian's biography, the great Brandon Alinger, who offers some behind-the-scenes tidbits about the making of the book, alongside the late J.W. Rinzler.
