Lattes with Leia #31: Star Wars and Parasocial Relationships

Do you feel like you have a bond to a fictional character? Have you ever wondered if that one-sided connection has been studied? It has. On the newest episode of Lattes with Leia, Andrea leads a discussion on parasocial relationships: what they are, factors related to the strength of parasocial relationships, the dark side of such connections, and more.

Some of the stuff we mention on the show:
Leggings by Terez
Lantern Pins (specifically the empress pins)
TedX Talk on Parasocial Relationships
