AGN jets have an impact on the galaxy that hosts them, and in turn the galaxy can have an influence on the jet itself. In this work, we give a brief overview of previous studies regarding the interaction of an AGN jet and its environment. We then focus on recent results regarding the possibility of stars introducing stellar-wind and ISM material into the jet at the moment of penetration, and on whether this phenomenon can have a significant impact on the jet, be it dynamically or through emission of non-thermal radiation.
