We've talked about Poe Dameron: Free Fall on the show in previous episodes, and today, I'm thrilled to share with you the first half of my conversation with its author, Alex Segura!

Here's Alex's short bio:

Alex Segura is an acclaimed writer of novels, comic books, and podcasts. He is the author of Star Wars Poe Dameron: Free Fall, the Pete Fernandez Mystery series (including the the Anthony Award-nominated crime novels Dangerous Ends, Blackout. and Miami Midnight), and the upcoming Secret Identity (Flatiron Books). He has also written a number of comic books, most notably the superhero noir The Black Ghost, the YA music series The Archies, and the “Archie Meets” collection of crossovers, featuring real-life cameos from the Ramones, B-52s, and more. He is also the co-creator/co-writer of the Lethal Lit crime/YA podcast from iHeart Radio, which was named one of the best podcasts of 2015 by The New York Times. By day he is Co-President of Archie Comics. A Miami native, he lives in New York with his wife and children.

In this first half of the conversation, you'll get to hear about Alex's history with and love of Star Wars; how the opportunity to write Poe Dameron: Free Fall came his way; details about Poe Dameron's character; and much more. Punch it!
