Episode details

During The Clone Wars a young Jedi turned against the war and Jedi Order's involvement in it. Convinced she had no other way to send a message of disaffection, Barriss Offee bombed the Jedi Temple and framed another Jedi for the act of terror. She was right about the war, and the Jedi, but did something very wrong. This week Danielle Adams, progressive and climate activist, joins the show as guest host to take us into the story of Barriss Offee and why it matters.

We also dive into a few rumors about The Rise of Skywalker and excerpts from Bob Iger's new memoir detailing tension with George Lucas over the new Star Wars films.
