The Star Wars Celebration Podcast Stage Schedule


One of the awesome things about the Star Wars fandom is how involved fans are able to be in talking & speculating about, and supporting & promoting the franchise. Dedication like that requires more than just a mild interest in the Star Wars movies, television shows, video games, and literature. It requires an awareness, whether conscious or unconscious, of some of the messages inherent in George Lucas’s creation. And one of those, sappy as it may sound, is still a fundamental one: the importance of friendships and family.

Fans haven’t neglected that message in all the decades since A New Hope’s box office premiere. In fact, it has been become more and more apparent in the past few years with the advent of a new phenomenon that has swept through fans all over the country (and even overseas in places like the United Kingdom). That phenomenon is podcasting!

And no matter what you do, whether you’re at Celebration or at home, have fun and be kind! You’ll have a much better time if you remember that what makes Star Wars so special is sharing it with others.

Podcasts are recordings of Star Wars fans doing what they do best: talking about Star Wars. Podcast episodes can  be anywhere from two minutes to two hours (and probably longer!), and they are great fun to listen to. I myself have been invited to guest host a couple of podcast shows, including Star Wars With Friends, Legends and Lore, and Mos Eisley ComicPort. It’s a blast, let me tell you! The enthusiasm for Star Wars that comes out when fans get together to talk about it is palpable, and it can be a really amazing experience for both the podcaster and the listener.

Star Wars has recognized the importance of the love and time that go into these recordings made on couches and edited, sometimes for hours, in front of computer screens. In fact, they are even going so far as to honor the dedicated hosts of some of these podcasts by featuring a Podcast Stage at Celebration this weekend!

A lot of people I know and am friends with on Twitter host podcasts, so therefore I wanted to highlight the lucky podcasters who are going to take the stage at Celebration. In the midst of celebrities and panels and The Force Awakens regalia, don’t forget about making time to spend with your Star Wars friends and family, because that fellowship is what will make the experience truly special.

The mere fact that so many podcasters are going to be able to take to a stage to talk about Star Wars tells me that these are some quality people and shows hitting Celebration. Be sure and go check them out, even if you’ve never heard of any of them or just haven’t taken the time to listen to them all, and support the fellowship that is such a big part of Star Wars and the fandom. And you don’t have to go to Celebration to hear them, either; just follow the links to their websites and listen there (many of them also post their episodes on iTunes, which is where I download my podcasts from).

And no matter what you do, whether you’re at Celebration or at home, have fun and be kind! You’ll have a much better time if you remember that what makes Star Wars so special is sharing it with others.
