When his armor was first glimpsed, Boba Fett captured the heart of Star Wars fandom. As his mythos grew, fans came to know he was “Mandalorian.” 

But the definition of a Mandalorian has shifted over time. Fenn Shysa told one history in the Marvel comics of the 1980s. They acquired a new origin as the Expanded Universe was rebuilt in the 1990s. Then came The Clone Wars TV series, with a Mandalorian mythos blessed by Lucas himself.

So what does it mean to be a Mandalorian, and what will it continue to mean as characters like Sabine Wren give additional opportunities to revise and expand it? Your hosts Matthew Rushing and John Mills discuss these ancient foes of the Jedi and their continuing role in this week's Aggressive Negotiations.
