    LIVE FROM STAR WARS CELEBRATION! Ahsoka Tano: The Purest Example of What the Jedi Should Be?

    Live from the Fan Stage at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, the hosts from Tarkin's Top Shelf (Becca Benjamin and Mark Sutter) join Ryder Waldron and E. Anne Convery in a discussion about Ahsoka Tano!
    Ahsoka Tano has become a beloved Star Wars character. Her story has spanned The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, the Ahsoka novel by E.K. Johnston, comics, The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, and the upcoming Ahsoka series on Disney Plus. But why has she become such an inspirational fan favorite? Should she have walked away from the Jedi Order? And how did leaving the Jedi Order affect her future? What are some of the best Ahsoka moments and fan-favorite aspects of her character growth, and did she become the purest example of a Jedi only after leaving the Order?

THE podcast for Star Wars book fans

No other podcast gives this much attention to the books and novels. They have author interviews all the time too!

loheSWF ,

Awesome podcast!!

Best Star Wars podcast I have ever listened to!

Alden Diaz ,

One of the most thoughtful Star Wars shows out there!

Here’s what I love about Becca & Mark: They understand that Star Wars is a tapestry of ideas. It’s a journey of themes and choices. And they’re not afraid to dig deep! They are so incredibly kind and fun and thoughtful. This is the kind of show that I’d gladly show anyone that wants to get into the deeper canon & lore, but while maintaining the openness and joy that makes Star Wars what it is in the first place. It’s a fun, open minded pod that considers the greater picture and everyone should check it out! Trust me, your fandom will be better for it.
