There’s nothing worse than reading a great book, being swept up in that last page, and then it’s over. There’s nothing more to read. It’s that moment when you wonder, “what am I going to do next?” Well if you’re looking for another great book to read, might I suggest Red Rising. It was so good that I’m once again left wondering that painful question of what to read next. The problem is Red Rising was so good, it’s hard to find anything else that can match it.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Big Beautiful Podcast: Episode 18 features an interview with author Christie Golden as they discuss her novel Star Wars: Dark Disciple, Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the prequels. This being my first time listening to this podcast, I was impressed with the sound quality and the hosts had some good questions which makes it worth checking out. I might be listening to some more episodes of this podcasts, especially if I can find some more Star Wars interviews.

Coffee With Kenobi: Rebels Reactions: The Siege of Lothal features Cory, Dan and Jeff as they discuss the episode with a nice, thorough breakdown. There’s a lot of thematic coverage that dives deep into the underlying story and the connective tissue of the premiere. With Cory, Dan and Jeff directing the discussion, it’s a dynamic trio.

Book Chat with Christie Golden has a nice, spoiler light discussion with the author of Dark Disciple. Dan and Cory do a great job as interviewers digging into some good subjects. Definitely a good one to check out.

Episode 39 begins with a donation thing they’re doing. The Bearded Trio provides an update on Jurassic World and the box office records it’s broke along with other Spielberg news. They talk about Star Wars SDCC exclusives before diving into their main topic: the music of Star Wars. For this segment they bring on guest Steve Torok whose music they use for the podcast. Ending things off is some listener feedback. Another great episode for Star Wars fans. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
