155: Getting Involved in the Fan Community
Mark Newbold (JediNews UK / Radio 1138 / starwars.com) and Jennifer Landa (YouTube / ForceCenter Podcast) join Richard and Sarah this week to give their expert opinions on how to get involved in the Star Wars Fan Community. We’ve been asked several times about this, so we asked on these great guests since they have such a rich, varied history between them.
It’s Harry Potter wands vs. Star Wars lightsabers!! Teresa Delgado (Fangirls Going Rogue / Star Wars Bookworms / Disney Vault Talk) helps us delve into the similarities and differences of wand-lore vs. lightsaber kyber crystals, the origin story of the Darksaber vs. the Elder Wand, and so much more. If, for some reason, you are not familiar with the Harry Potter-verse you may want to com back to this one since there will be spoilers.
