Our very own Teresa Delgado has been featured on Remezcla.com, with the article focusing on her podcasting efforts in the fandom community.
Teresa Delgado is only in her early thirties but her love of Star Wars is decades old. She was one of the many self-proclaimed fangirls who attended last week’s Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida. From her home in Austin, Texas this high school teacher is a podcasting maven in her spare time. Acting as a co-host to six different podcasts on Star Wars, Disney movies, galactic fashions and a range of other geeky topics – she’s turned her hobby into a fandom empire. She also lends her hand to writing for a Star Wars website run by aficionados of the franchise.
While many might imagine that a conference full of diehard sci-fi geeks tends towards the white male demographic, Delgado asserts that’s not the case. “Star Wars really is for everyone. It is a melting pot of races, ethnicities, sexual orientations and so much more,” she told Remezcla in an email interview. A look around the convention center proves her right. The conference floor brimmed over with imperial cosplayers, 501st Legion members, and multi-generational packs of Star Wars heads from across the globe.
After the close of Celebration and she headed home back to Texas, we caught up with Delgado to talk about juggling her hosting duties, how her love of the Star Wars franchise started, and what Latina actress she’d like to see cast in a Star Wars movie.
