Thrawn fans will have more to love from Star Wars: Thrawn Ascendancy: Greater Good, and may find the expansion of the novel's focus beyond the titular Chiss to be, in its way, even more compelling. Punch it!

(Here's the mantra from Luminara Unduli I thought was noteworthy, which she recites as Barriss Offee assembles her lightsaber on Ilum:)

The crystal is the heart of the blade
The heart is the crystal of the Jedi
The Jedi are the crystal of the Force
The Force is the blade of the heart

About 900 episodes ago, I made some predictions about Clone Wars season 7. (Logic? Sound. Results? Mixed.) But the actual results of season 7, and what's happened since, may indicate how Lucasfilm is approaching new stories to come. Punch it!

NFTs - "non-fungible tokens" - are becoming quite the rage. They basically take a digital item and make it "the" one official version of the item. The NBA is making a mint with it - will it happen with Star Wars? Punch it!

Sarah Kuhn, Emily Woo Zeller, and the full Penguin Random House Audio cast and crew did a great job expanding the Doctor Aphra comics story into an audiodrama last year. I wish I could say the addition of the script release made it feel like a "both" rather than an "either/or." I'll explain on the show today... Punch it!

The April Fool's Day episode is one of my favorites of the year! On today's show, I'll break down what was real and what was fake from yesterday's "reveals." Punch it!
