Kenobi (novel)

Anyone who listens to Star Wars podcasts is probably familiar with our guest for this episode. We were happy to welcome Jimmy Mac from the podcast RebelForce Radio! Of course since we had him we had to get his take on the Star Wars Expanded Universe. He talked about how he got into the EU while it was still in its infancy, some of the early things he was into, and his dislike for the Black Fleet Crisis. We also discussed what his thoughts are on the Expanded Universe in relation to the new movies coming out.

Agent of the Empire: Hard Targets (comic volume)

Bookworms is back with your hosts Teresa and Aaron. On this episode they bring in Mark Hurliman of the Star Wars Beyond the Films podcast to talk some comics.

Before they tackled the reviews though, they had some feedback from a listener to share. Listener shazbazzar sent in an email with his thoughts on Crucible, Mortis, the Expanded Universe, and Episode VII which led to some fun discussion on all topics.

Then our hosts jumped right into their review of the Purge comics, covering each of the 4 storylines individually. Aaron, Teresa, and Mark had varying opinions on which stories they enjoyed and which ones didn’t work for them.

And why doesn’t this guy have a mouth?

Intro to the EU Dragon Con Panel – SWBW #11

Play

We have an extra special episode of Star Wars Bookworms for you today. This past weekend was Dragon Con 2013 in Atlanta. One of our hosts, Aaron, was on location at this major pop culture convention and he had the chance to be on a few Star Wars panels. One of the panels he was on was the Intro to the Star Wars Expanded Universe panel. He was joined by a number of other panelists including Brian and Nanci from the Tosche Station podcast.

Lucky for us Riley from the Star Wars Report recorded the entire panel. What we have done for our listeners is take the recording and edit it a bit. The majority of the panel is here but we did edit out sections that were hard to hear or parts that were more filler. If you are interested in listening to the entire unedited panel you can find that over at Tosche Station Radio.

Review this Episode: Star Wars: Crucible

Star Wars Bookworms is a monthly podcast but we have gone above and beyond this month releasing a second episode with (maybe) a third on the way! In this episode we are joined by Expanded Universe expert Geralyn Bray, a blogger over at the fansite Roqoo Depot. At the top of the show we give her a short interview to learn more about her favorite things in Star Wars.

Force ghosts, Force ghosts everywhere! We also discuss the Episode VII rumors that both Ian McDiarmid and Ewan McGregor may return to the Star Wars movies. As Force ghosts, clones, holocron projections? Will McGregor get a stand alone Kenobi movie?
