This week I appeared on three podcasts, as usual discussing Star Wars and a variety of other topics.
Riley and Bethany from Star Wars Report graciously invited Teresa and me to drop by their latest episode to talk about our goals for Fangirls Going Rogue. Once again we had another great discussion about Star Wars, the future of the franchise, and shared our picks for the most under-appreciated female character. The support we’ve already received for the new podcast has been wonderful, and it’s very much appreciated.
Over at Coffee With Kenobi, show #8 includes my audio interview with Erich Schoeneweiss from Del Rey about his role in helping produce the recently released tome The Making of Return of the Jedi by Lucasfilm’s J.W. Rinzler. The episode also includes a guest appearance by my colleague Scott Murray from Assembly of Geeks, a contribution from The Bearded Trio, and a review of Man of Steel.
Speaking of Assembly of Geeks, in this week’s episode we discuss giving thanks and I share my reaction to Catching Fire.
It is time to give thanks for friends, family, blessings, podcast listeners and the things we geek out about. Join us for a special Thanksgiving geek assembly.
The supergeeks discuss what geeky things they’re thankful for this year and what geek characters they’d like to have Thanksgiving dinner with. We also hear people from Austin Comic-Con answer those questions.
Fangirl finally got to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and compares her review with Merchman and Admiral 80s. Merchman tells everyone about his new dog and the geeky name he gave him (plus the purchase of his Darth Vader chew toy). Be sure to join us for this geeky Turkey Day inspired meeting.
Tricia Barr took her understanding of brand management and marketing, mixed it with a love of genre storytelling, and added a dash of social media flare to create FANgirl Blog, where she discusses Star Wars, fandom, and strong female characters. She also writes about Star Wars for Random House’s science fiction and fantasy blog Suvudu.com and Star Wars Insider magazine and is a contributor for Her Universe’s Year of the Fangirl. Her FANgirl opinions can be heard on the podcasts Assembly of Geeks and RebelForce Radio Presents Fangirls Going Rogue.
Tricia is putting the finishing touches on her first novel, Wynde – a military science fiction with a fantastical twist that features heroines Vespa and Gemini. For excerpts and tales of her adventures in creating a fictional universe, hop over to TriciaBarr.com.
