Episode 50: Live at GeekGirlCon

We’ve reached Episode 50 of Fangirls Going Rogue! Making the occasion even more special, Tricia Barr, Sarah Woloski, and Teresa Delgado were able to record the fiftieth episode spectacular together in person while attending GeekGirlCon in Seattle, Washington. As part of celebrating nearly four years of the show, we share voicemails and messages from listeners. We sincerely appreciate all the kind words for the show.

After kicking off the episode by marking the Episode 50 milestone and briefly reviewing the latest in Star Wars news, we sit down for an interview with Annalise Ophelian, the documentary filmmaker behind the upcoming “Looking for Leia.” We learn about her background as a filmmaker, her insights on the film industry, and of course the “Looking for Leia” documentary itself. At the convention, Annalise unveiled a preview reel that made each of us tear up. It’s now available for everyone to see, and embedded below.

Next we share our favorite moments from GeekGirlCon. While Tricia had attended five times previously, this was the first GGC for Sarah and Teresa.

We couldn’t do a 50th episode show without looking back at Fangirls Going Rogue to date. We talk about our favorite interviews and memories from our time together on the podcast.

For our character discussion this month, we jump right into the Twitter challenge begun by our friend and listener Amy Wishman Nalan: the #RebelsPhotoChallenge. At the time of our recording, the challenge included, among others, our favorite Ghost crew character, favorite returning character from The Clone Wars, and favorite moments from Ezra, Kanan, and Hera.
