Podcast Stardust #6: What is the Dark Side?

by Podcast Stardust

We are asking, “What is the Dark Side of the Force?” on this fully armed and operational episode of Podcast Stardust.

Yoda was very insistent that Anakin, Luke, and any other Jedi that would listen should avoid the dark side of the Force. Over the course of the Star Wars movies, the dark side is often described but seldom defined. On this episode of Podcast Stardust, Dennis and Jay ask, “What is the dark side?”

The discussion includes:

  • Whether the dark side is part of the Force or its own entity,
  • If the dark side is a corrupting influence or the result of the Force being corrupted,
  • If the light side can exist without the dark side,
  • The hallmarks, powers, and philosophies of dark side Force users, and
  • The manner in which dark side Force users corrupt their lightsaber crystals.
