Ep. 10 - Book Chat: Alphabet Squadron

   

Note: In the first few episodes the name of the podcast was Star Wars in Poor Taste before we became the ever loving Tauntauns that you know so well.

The ABY’s of Alphabet Squadron: Hey look everyone, we made it to ten episodes! We’re into double digits and to celebrate this momentous milestone we’re talking about the exciting new novel from Alexander Freed, Alphabet Squadron.

If you’re got a bad feeling about this, it’s because there are heavy spoilers ahead. So if you haven’t read the book yet and don’t want it ruined for you, do not listen to this episode. Otherwise, we have a fantastic episode for you in which JJ and Jim dig into the book’s rigorous character development, and argue over their favorite characters and ships.

Perhaps even more important, the moment so many fans have been hoping and praying for has arrived…The Knights of Ren confirmed for The Rise of Skywalker! We also spare some time for Galaxy’s Edge (Connor wouldn’t have it any other way), and Jedi Fallen Order. All pilots to your stations, and may The Force be with you.

Ep 9 - Talking Star Wars comics with Heather Antos

   Note: In the first few episodes the name of the podcast was Star Wars in Poor Taste before we became the ever loving Tauntauns that you know so well. 

Star Wars in Poor Taste squadron report in: JJ Travers checking in, Connor Christiansen checking in, Jim Lehane checking in, and special guest, Heather Antos checking in!

Heather joined Valiant Entertainment as an editor in January of 2019. Prior to joining Valiant’s team, she worked at Marvel as an editor from 2015 to March 2018, where she helped develop Star Wars comics in partnership with the Lucasfilm story group. We have her to thank in part for titles such as Star Wars: Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Doctor Aphra, Poe Dameron, Screaming Citadel, and a whole lot more.

We were lucky enough to speak with Heather about the unique process of creating new canon with Marvel Comics and the Lucasfilm story group, how she tackled adapting three Star Wars films of the modern era to comics, her love for Doctor Aphra — which Connor may have lost his mind over — and the best moment her passion for Star Wars has brought her.
