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.)

Mike Chen is an incredible author whose newest novel, Star Wars: Brotherhood is one of my favorite new canon books in recent memory. We dive into his career, his process, and his work on this incredibly important piece of the saga!

Thank you so much again to Mr. Chen for taking the time and being so open with his thoughts and stories, as well as his dissertation on Anakin Skywalker. Thank you as well to Del Rey for the advance copy and facilitating this interview.
