Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 206 covers D23 Expo and all the Star Wars things that were there and the experience in general as Steve was there and he’s one of the special guests for the episode. They also talk about Disney Infinity 3.0, Kingdom of Hearts, Star Wars: Battlefront, Rogue One news, Star Wars Land, the Avatar land stuff, and Toy Story Land. Good episode to round out your D23 dosage.

Coffee With Kenobi: Coffee Chat with Dennis Keithly is an interesting episode as they focus on their earliest memories of Star Wars, seeing the films for the first time, seeing the special editions, and finally the prequels. It’s a pretty intriguing discussion, worth checking out.

Comics With Kenobi: Episode #5 reviews Kanan #5, Star Wars #8, Darth Vader #8, Lando #2 and Lando #3 with lots of interesting viewpoints. If you’re looking for Star Wars comics discussion, these guys have it in bucket fulls. It’s funny though whenever I hear viewpoints that are completely contrary to my own as I have to remind myself that Star Wars fans are a very devise group, and I, by no means, fall into the norm. Lots of in depth discussion but also lots of spoilers, so fair warning. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
