All Wings Report In, the official podcast of the Rebel Legion, has a really nice interview with author John Jackson Miller. John was recently inducted into the Rebel Legion at San Diego Comic Con 2013, and he jokes around about joining the Mandalorian Mercs next for a trifecta. He talks about recruiting a Tusken Raider at SDCC to threaten con goers, a wild traffic jam he and Michael S. Stackpole witnessed involving a train, a fire truck, cops and a cosplayer with wings. John also talks about how he ended up working for Dark Horse Comics, how Knights of the Old Republic came about, when KOTOR will come back, tabletop gaming, developing the Lost Tribe of the Sith, how art can sometimes inspire the story, the origin of Kenobi and how it got put off. Like other authors recently, John emphasized that future Star Wars projects are on a wait and see basis, but he is doing stuff other than Star Wars (Simpsons, Conan, Star Trek, Overdraft: The Orion Offensive). The interview covers a whole lot more, and combined with the good audio quality, this is definitely one worth checking out.
