Back in mid July, Mark of Clashing Sabers and Forever Star Wars got in touch with me to let me know that he was planning an Ahsoka-centric episode and that he was looking for testimonials of what Ahsoka meant to them and how she inspired them. So I helped spread the word on Twitter and, thankfully, quite a few fans answered his call.

This podcast episode attempts to answer both of these questions and pay homage to one of Star Wars greatest characters.
You can listen to this Tano-tastic episode through the embedded player above or over on Soundcloud. And don’t miss this companion article about Ahsoka Tano’s hero journey.
If you’d like to send Mark your feedback, you can find him on Twitter under his personal account, @djmmarquis, and if you’re looking for more great insight into that galaxy far, far away, check out the Clashing Sabers website.
