Island of Star Wars Love

Every time I’m feeling down about Star Wars fandom I collapse onto this island of love that is Lipstick and Lightsabers. I can’t overstate how important everyone’s Star Wars stories are and how much they mean to me. We are the spark.

Okay so technically

I haven’t listened to an entire episode yet but I saw a very rude dude review that made me mad so I’m here with a 5 star and a yes please.

Fantastic podcast and community-building

Alex and Shannon have done such an incredible job of building a community within the Star Wars fandom where women can share their personal stories, and it has given such greater visibility to those who may or may not already have a platform. Alex and Shannon’s passion and enthusiasm for Star Wars really comes through in their discussions, and it feels like I’m with friends when I turn on a new episode. It’s so wonderful to have their voices in this community and it wouldn’t be the same without them! Also, Alex does AMAZING art for the show.
