Melinda’s Brew: Star Wars Fandom In Good Hands

Melinda's Brew

One’s a little bit light side. One’s a little bit dark side. They balance each other out. Which seems almost fitting since the co-hosts of the podcast “Star Wars Geek Girl” – California’s Lizzy Perales and Pennsylvania’s Zoe Hinton – pretty much bookend the country. Thanks to the internet, the two teens “met”, forged a friendship, and wound up co-hosting the weekly podcast. The pair just celebrated their two-year anniversary.

Listening to the teens talk about Star Wars and whatever else they deem noteworthy every week, you’d never guess they didn’t meet until Celebration Orlando this past April.

Truly Wonderful, the Memories of Star Wars Celebration Are!

As I sit down to write this, there are only 25 days left until Star Wars Celebration Orlando!  My, how time flies. It feels like just yesterday we were getting the news on starwars.com that the next celebration would be in Orlando – once again, I’m overwhelmed with a whirlwind of emotions. No worries, at this point I’m a veteran of Star Wars Celebrations as this one will mark my fourth Force-tastic adventure of being immersed in the galaxy far, far away. In other words, all is right in the world.

And so, in light of Star Wars Celebration, I thought it would be fitting to share some of my past celebration experiences with all of you. Hopefully you’ll find some joy in my personal stories and maybe you’ll even learn something about me you didn’t already know. Ready. Set. Go!
