The monthly podcast where Star Wars and '90s nostalgia collide as Cam and Sam discuss each book in the Young Jedi Knights series and more!
201 - Vector Prime
Hi kids! Do you like Primus? Want to hear about Yuuzhan Vong body horror and learn what Vector Prime is? If so, listen along as NEW guest Jake Beal wades into the NEW Jedi Order with us, gushing over Zelda along the way while we debate how this NEW series serves as a continuation of the Young Jedi Knights novels.
202 - Dark Tide I: Onslaught
Emperor's black bones! It's about time we finally read another New Jedi Order book! Sean Davis returns to the club to break all the rules of the Memory Archive, touching on everything from “hate picks” to the hot s**t of February Y2K. The Yuuzhan Vong War rages on, but the true onslaught might just be The Bad Touch vs. the Thong Song…
203 - Dark Tide II: Ruin
The Seanslaught continues... Sean Davis rejoins us for the Embrace of Pain as the tide of this duology takes an especially dark and ruinous turn. He also details a firsthand account of the pop culture event of 2000: his high school graduation! Fitting, given the motif of universities in these last few books, a sign that our Young Jedi Knights have advanced to the next phase of their education in the New Jedi Order.
204 - Agents of Chaos I: Hero's Trial
Han gets the Solo adventure we’ve been craving, but more importantly, for a page or two, we get to welcome back our favorite forsaken Young Jedi Knights! Agent of chaos Barm returns to the podcast for more "Stephen King bullsh*t," real talk about the art-life balance, and an appraisal of James Luceno's reference-heavy style of worldbuilding. Don't forget to stick around after the credits for a very important string cheese incident!
205 - Agents of Chaos II: Jedi Eclipse
The Agents of Chaos duology concludes in a plate-spinning yarn dripping with Hutt Stuff and a side of Jedi-smothered hash browns. Eric Ambler snaps on a slap-bracelet-like amphistaff and boards the matte black Falcon to help us grapple with the inhumanity of superweapons, both in the real world and in this book, as we guess who or what threatens to eclipse the Jedi...
206 - Balance Point
Slip on your most ghoulish gablith masquer for a Young Jedi Knights Club Spooktacular! Hear us conjure up our favorite frights from the year 2000, revel in Kathy Tyers' wicked character work, and determine the "Halloweeniest" moments of Balance Point, whatever the stang that means... Just don't let a whisperkit cross your path!
Tenel Ka fan club
Wow I loved your sequel trilogy reboot pitch so much in the retrospective.
Fun to hear about the nineties and the EU even though I never read these books. Love all of these guys’ podcasts and they got me reading EU comics and collecting these books for my niece and nephew.
