Welcome to the Legion!

Legion of Leia Podcast Ep. 66: Steve Copeland From WyrdCon, the 501st Legion and Happy May the 4th!

Steve Copeland from Wyrd Con and the 501st Legion joins us to celebrate May the 4th!

On this week’s Legion of Leia podcast, Anastasia Washington and I welcome Steve Copeland from the upcoming storytelling convention Wyrd Con and the 501st Legion! It’s perfectly fitting as today is May the 4th, otherwise known as Star Wars Day! It’s also the 3rd anniversary of Legion of Leia! I met Steve last year, shortly before my better half Jeffrey Henderson filmed his Star Wars short The Sable Corsair. He was in desperate need of Sandtroopers and I ran into Steve at WonderCon, out of breath and yelling for anyone who knew one. He said, “I’m a Sandtrooper!” The rest is history!

Steve is also helping to run Wyrd Con, which takes place from May 11-14 in Costa Mesa, California. (Jeff and I will be there doing panels on Sunday, so come say hello!) You guys can check it out and get tickets at WyrdCon.com!

Steve also has a pretty fantastic story about what just happened to his car. It caught fire with a very special person inside. I promised on the podcast that I’d post the picture from his Facebook page, so here it is!

This week we go into what’s happening with Star Wars, whether or not there is enough Wonder Woman marketing out there right now and the first episode of American Gods on Starz. Anastasia and Steve are reading the book and I just finished my second time through. Is it confusing if you haven’t read the book? Are we excited for more? Take a listen and find out! Steve also lets us know about the awesomeness of Wyrd Con and how most of the people who work for it are ladies!
