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.)

Tom Spina, the mad man behind Regal Robot, returns to the show for a third time. Because of that, we go a little wild, talking about trips to Skywalker Ranch, the archives, and the just-announced, absolutely incredible, Phil Tippett Legacy Edition of the Rancor maquette. It’s always a good time when Tom comes around.

Thank you so much again to Tom for coming on the show and waxing poetic about the incredible work him and his team at Regal Robot are doing. If I did not gush enough, they are the best around.

The Phil Tippett Legacy Edition of the Rancor Maquette goes on sale next week … for all the details and some insane photos, head to

We have a few more episodes in the works, including my conversation with Judy Elkins.
