Dr. Justin Wigard interviews pop culture author and publisher Stu Horvath about the 1980s & 1990s Star Wars role-playing games published by West End Games, what makes those games tick, where they fit into the larger history of Star Wars, what makes them so influential, and how they foster modes of rebellious and resistant gameplay. No prior RPG experience required! Listen to the podcast in the Pop Up Shop!
