Small collectives of Star Wars fans all over the world follow the spiritual path of the Jedi. But this isn’t about fandom or cosplay. They live, train, and work by the Jedi Code. And while this philosophy is rooted in modern science fantasy, the tenets are not much different from the core of Buddhism or Christianity.

Jediism is all about social wellness, physical fitness, and helping those in need.

This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet stuff on stage) chat with the organizer of California Jedi, Katie Mock.
