On this episode, Dominic, Ciaran, Ben, and Chris are joined by Kareem Dharsee from Order 416 to discuss the Clone Wars episode "Deal Or No Deal".  They discuss Ahsoka's continued exposure to what life is like outside the Jedi order.  They also break down how the episode challenges our notions about the "goodness" of the Republic and the Jedi, and the challenges for people like Trace and Rafa in navigating the galaxy.  They also delve into the layers of Anakin and Ahsoka's relationship, and why Anakin lets Ahsoka go in this episode.  Plus, connections to Solo: A Star Wars Story, a new side to Kessel, the Pykes are back, and a defense of the name "Silver Angel" for a ship.  All this and much more!
