In this episode, we have two interviews. First we chat with head writer of Star Wars: the Clone Wars Matt Michnovetz. It is a fascinating look behind the curtain of this great animated series. Then, we chat with co-host of “R2 in 22″ Jen who is a lot of fun and we discuss her podcast.
Then, Wayne and I finish up the Michael Stackpole quadrilogy with X-Wing: The Bacta War. We break down this novel and this series.
We also must apologize for life putting the show on the back burner for the last couple of months, but we are back and we hope that you love this episode as much as we loved recording it and chatting with our guest.
Thanks for exploring the galaxy with us one page at a time.

X-Wing: The Bacta War is truly a tale of two books for me. There were parts of it that I absolutely loved and thought were brilliant, and there were parts that were not so great. In this story, Rogue Squadron prepares to free Thyferra from the evil clutches of Ysanne Isard, and restore a normal flow of the much needed miracle salve of bacta to the galaxy. Also, Corran wants to fulfill his promise to free the prisoners of Lusankya.
I played a little baseball in my day, and I spent many, many hours with a group of close knit guys in locker rooms, dug outs, road trips, practice, and so on, and we constantly were ribbing each other with a quick witted one line jokes or cut downs. It was all done in jest and genuine affection between teammates, and these one liners were a language that accompanied teammates. Michael Stackpole captures this playful one line cut downs beautifully in this work, and I appreciated it so much. It took me back to my ball days. These one liners are genuinely funny.
