Old School Star Wars fans know Scott Chernoff as the managing editor of the publication that was their only lifeline to Star Wars during the dark times before the Special Editions and the Prequels: Star Wars Insider. After leaving the magazine shortly after Attack of the Clones, Scott went on to be a writer for Conan O’Brien and BoJack Horseman and an actor on Adult Swim shows Rick and Morty and Hotstreets.
In this episode of Around the Galaxy, the Star Wars Fan Talkshow, Scott joins us to share some fun and funny stories about his unprecedented access to the Prequels, thoughts on the Disney-era Star Wars films and the ugliness of the FandomMenace.
