Podcast Episode 8 – Visions of Disabilities

A person with long hair and glasses appears in front of a black and white image of a Japanese animation character who is pulling a red lightsaber from a scabbard. A round Resilience Squadron logo is shown in the corner and the text "Guest: Emma Mieko Candon" appears at the bottom.

In this episode Greg and Jack talk to Emma Mieko Candon, author of Star Wars Ronin: A Visions Novel, based on the short The Duel from the Star Wars Visions animated series. Emma, self-described as a queer, disabled cyborg, talks about her experiences with life-threatening illness and chronic pain, how it shaped her writing, and how it helped form the alternate-Star Wars universe of The Ronin.
