Discussing The Mandalorian and Mark Twain on American Vandal Podcast

I’m part of this week’s edition of The American Vandal podcast from Elmira College’s Center for Mark Twain Studies. I discuss connections between Twain and The Mandalorian TV series (and Star Wars in general) with host Dr. Matt Seybold and Tor Books writer Emmet Asher-Perrin.

The Mandalorian‘s working title was, get this, “Project Huckleberry.” So how much Mark Twain is embedded in the show? Is Baby Yoda like Huck or like Jim? How does the “rebels vs. empire” narrative of Star Wars jibe with the science fiction stories Mark Twain wrote? Listen and find out.

It’s available on Spotify, Google, and Apple podcasts.

Here’s a related article link from Animated Times, and a photo of Grogu (Baby Yoda) from inews UK, because he’s the real star of the show. This is the way.
