Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 202 features an interview with author Christie Golden as they talk about her latest book Dark Disciple. Christie talks about the project and the unique challenges involved. She also mentions that the first four episodes of the eight episode TCW arc had animatics which she was able to watch as part of her research for the book. The interview also touches on Starcraft and Warcraft. Good interview overall.

EndorCast: Episode IV has an audio clip of Robert Englund laying the story straight on his involvement with Star Wars and how he got Mark Hamill to audition, which is pretty cool. They also have guests Gus Lopez and Amy from the Ewok Builders Club on to talk about the club which is still pretty new and gaining momentum. Afterwards they talk with the Perales family about cosplaying as Star Wars Rebels characters. Nice episode with a cosplaying focus you might want to check out.

Fly Casual: Episode 44 has some news from Kylo Ren’s stuntman who talks about the security onset. Trank talks about fan hate, and they get into some toy news with the San Diego Comic Con Hasbro six inch Black Series The Force Awakens trooper exclusive, the Han and Tauntaun, the Funko C-3PO, Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars Rebels figures, and they talk a little about the E3 Star Wars: Battlefront videos.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. It’s a shorter one as I’m catching up from my vacation last week, but we’ll be back in the swing of things next week.

80’s Reboot Overdrive Podcast: James Kahn Interview is a good one to listen to. James has been making the rounds lately with podcast interviews, and this one, while covering some familiar ground, also breaks into some new territory. It’s a good interview with good hosts, excellent sound quality and a lot of Goonies focus.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode 20 includes news highlights, Star Wars Weekends coverage with audio clips and interviews with Steve Blum and Daniel Logan, a special discussion on their ten favorite Star Wars musical moments, and a character discussion on Barriss Offee. Great episode.

Full of Sith: Episode CXIX is hosted by Mike and Bryan with special guest Holly Frey as they talk about legendary actor Christopher Lee who recently passed away. They cover a little bit of everything, from his role in Star Wars, to Lord of the Rings and his Hammer Films work. Entertaining as always, this is a good one to check out.

RebelForce Radio: Episode 6.19.2015 has Star Wars Weekends coverage with Jimmy Mac and Steve Glosson as they talk with James Arnold Taylor, Ashley Eckstein, Taylor Gray and Ray Park, do the RebelForce Radio listener meetup, recount their Star Tours and Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular experiences and more. Definitely a fun episode to listen to.

Episode 6.12.2015 they cover some Star Wars book release dates, Jimmy discusses why he stopped reading Heir to the Jedi, they play Steve Glosson’s great Star Wars parody song of Nickleback’s “Rockstar”, they cover the upcoming mobile game Star Wars Uprising, the Han Solo bombshell from Marvel, and movie rumors. Lots of stuff packed into this one.

Skywalking Through Neverland: Episode 82 features guest Kevin Reitzel for Star Wars Weekends #3 coverage then shifts to Christopher Lee highlights, history and audio clips. As a big fan of Christopher Lee, I really enjoyed this episode. From his early career to his upcoming, unreleased work, they cover it all. Highly recommend it, and it goes great with the Full of Sith Christopher Lee episode, so be sure to double up.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 198 is hosted by Jeremiah and James as they cover topics like Rogue One and an X-Wing being launched into space. Then they break to Jason and a Star Wars Celebration Anaheim recap he did while at Anaheim with some friends. It’s a little noisy, and sometimes a lot noisy. It also goes on for some length as they ambitiously try to cover everything. Then they switch back to James and Jeremiah for more Star Wars discussion before Jeremiah switches over and talks with Jason about the Seattle Star Wars costume exhibit. Lastly they got back to James and Jeremiah for a little speculation on when we might see a full trailer for The Force Awakens. The episode covers a lot, but it might not be to everyone’s liking.

Fly Casual: Episode 40 is their Memorial Day episode featuring some extra friends as they all gather together in person for the episode. It leads to some extra goofing around, lots of jovialness, and even some Star Wars. This is their news and toy report episode so they do touch on some Star Wars news and they have a short collecting segment that’s actually pretty cool.

Full of Sith: Episode CXVII features Bryan, Mike and special guest Dunc (Club Jade) as they talk The Force Awakens, Rogue One, Rebels, Zahn pronunciations, a rumor about a Shadows of the Empire sequel, and the reveal of Serkis’ character name Snoke. There’s a little bit of everything in this episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
