Fifteen Minutes of Fiction: They have a new interview up with Steve Sansweet.
ForceCast: Had a special interview episode with The Clone Wars voice actress Ashley Eckstein. While some of the questions covered familiar ground, others covered new territory. Ashley didn’t give away anything about the lost episodes of season six, but she did touch on her work as Ahsoka and on Her Universe.
Episode 248 is out but I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, however the title intrigues me, “Who Doesn’t Need More Killiks?”.
Full of Sith: Episode XVII featured an interview with guest Amy Ratcliffe. The hosts ask Amy about how she got involved with Star Wars, her favorite moments and the extent of her work. It’s a nice conversation and worth a listen.
Episode XVIII features an interview with guest Tricia Barr which covers a lot of interesting Star Wars topics including the New Jedi Order, fanfiction and the future of canon.
Rebel Force Radio: Last week’s podcast covered quite a bit, including an interview with Dave Filoni, commentary on the shutdown of LucasArts, the prospects for a new animated series, the recent cancellations and the outlook for Disney and Star Wars. The interview with Filoni is definitely worth listening to. Dave talks about his feelings on Season 5 being the end of The Clone Wars, touches a little on the Order 66 arc that was previewed, mentions that we will be getting the Clovis arc as part of the bonus content, that he’s involved in the production process for future projects and a variety of other topics.
Their new episode includes a nice interview with David Collins covering his work with Lucasarts and the recent news of it being shut down.
Star Wars Book Report: Episode 68 includes Jesse and Wayne’s review of Isard’s Revenge with commentary from the author himself, Michael Stackpole. They talk with Mike about X-wings, coming back to Star Wars and what Mike has coming out next. If you’re a Stackpole fan, you won’t want to miss this one.
Star Wars Report: Episode 85 didn’t cover a whole lot. There was some discussion about Disney and all the cancellations and a side topic on a someone watching the Star Wars movies for the first time (I’ve missed a couple episodes, so I’ve fallen a little behind. I assume this has been an ongoing topic in the podcast).
Star Wars Beyond the Films: Episode 66 covers the EU character Revan from his video game appearances to the comics and books. It’s a very info heavy review which some listeners might enjoy. A good portion of it includes a review of the novel Revan by Drew Karpyshyn. If you haven’t read the book yet and you’re avoiding spoilers, you’ll want to skip this one.
