It’s just a few days to Star Wars Celebration Anaheim! I’m feverishly searching the Web to find out about all the events going on and their are some really tough choices to be made. As a Con Veteran I know that the best course of action is to have many back up plans and to also build your day around one event.

 

About six months ago I discovered the world of podcasting and it is a treasure trove for Star Wars fans. The center of my daily schedule is built around  different podcasts for various reasons:

 

Community

Star Wars fans are special. Wear your favorite her universe hoodie or carry one of your many Star Wars wallets or purses and your sure to get comments. I love finding fellow fans “out in the wild”. From my dentist office to the supermarket I can always count on a smile or a friendly nod from fellow fans.

I’ve been a solitary Star Wars fan for most of my life. I have one close friend who is a fellow Star Wars fan (and she is attending Celebration with me!!!), but day to day their was a lack of Star Wars geeking in my life. No more! I love the discussions, interviews and speculation that podcasters engage in with their listeners.  I’m so excited to meet them and let them know how much their podcasts have enhanced my fandom.

 

Special Guests

As I’ve been listening to the various podcasters prep for their stage shows it’s exciting to hear about the Authors, Actors, and Artists associated with the saga that will be appearing on their stages.

 

Buttons & Swag

Apparently buttons are quite the thing at Star Wars Celebrations. Its been a blast seeing all the buttons that people have developed and I’m excited to get a few. Skywalking Through Neverland’s prize list is growing daily! From Funko Pops to Legoland passes .
