This week I had the chance to join Consetta, Bryan, and Mike on the Full of Sith podcast. We discussed all things Star Wars, including my childhood experiences as a Star Wars fan, my entry into the online fandom through fan fiction, The Clone Wars, the Expanded Universe, and the Sequel Trilogy. We also talked about some of my favorite Star Wars characters, especially Jaina Solo and Princess Leia, and Consetta and I dropped a few glitterbombs on her co-hosts. (Hopefully Mike and Bryan will recover.)
I had a great time talking with them, and I hope I’ll have a chance to join them again in the future.
