Charlotte and Caitlin go back to basics with a discussion on Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, Maureen Murdock’s Heroine’s Journey, villains, antiheroes, Byronic heroes, Reylo, Anakin Skywalker, and more. In part one, they talk definitions and history. In part two, they dive into what the creators have said about our heroes and villains: quotes from George Lucas, Rian Johnson, and JJ Abrams. In part three, they answer the question: Do these archetypes even matter? All this and more on this episode of Skytalkers.

Art history and historic preservation are the topics of this long-awaited episode of Skytalkers. In an episode guided by Caitlin’s Masters, in part one, we discuss "the Lost 20” from Attack of the Clones, monuments, the Jedi, and remembrance. In part two, we talk about Sabine and Thrawn, and how art and art history define them as heroes and villains. In part three, Caitlin talks about film as a studied medium, the National Register of Historic Places + Star Wars, and Skywalker Ranch’s Archive and Library. We finish the podcast with a reading from Camille Paglia’s book Glittering Images.

We love Ahsoka Tano. What does she signify in the larger canon? What did we think of her when she debuted in 2008? In part one, we talk about our introduction to Ahsoka and our favorite Ahsoka episodes. In part two, we talk about what she represents in the larger mythos, and her relationship with Anakin Skywalker. Charlotte presents a wild theory for Episode IX which includes Ahsoka. In part three, we talk about her lasting legacy and the future of her character. Finally, we read your emails and play your audio messages on what Ahsoka means to you. Grab the tissues and let's discuss this no-Jedi. [FYI -- spoilers for Star Wars: Rebels]
