Happy New Year! Welcome back to the podcast, and welcome to 2019! We’re ringing in the new year the best way we know how: with awesome conversations. And one of the most awesome I’ve had recently with none other than Chuck Wendig. Star Wars fans know Wendig well for his Aftermath trilogy and his graphic novel adaptation of The Force Awakens. He also had a story in the stellar From a Certain Point of View and ALMOST wrote the Shadow of Vader limited series for Marvel (which is a whole other story). But he’s so much more than just Star Wars. He’s authored some 20 novels, including the Miriam Black series, the Heartland trilogy, Zeroes, Invasive, and many more. He’s also figured out the whole Twitter thing. He not only used it to land his Star Wars gig, but he somehow managed to turn a series of tweets (with Sam Sykes) into a movie! Plus, he’s an heirloom apple fanatic. What’s not to love? Prolific on the page, vocal online, and just a damn fine gentleman, I can think of no better way to kick of 2019. Enjoy! And Happy New Year!
