Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:Captain America, Trekkies & Anomalies” episode has a nice discussion of Captain America: The Winter Soldier complete with themed intro. They dig into their thoughts on the movie, how it stacks up against the previous Marvel movies and they keep it light on spoilers. Later, they talk with special guest Jen Rhodes from the Anomaly Podcast who talks about her fandom, podcasting, Star Wars and more heavily, Star Trek. Capping things off, they talk about two Star Wars themed tv episodes (The Big Bang Theory and The Goldbergs) and some other movie news. An entertaining show and worth listening to for lots of fun geeky discussion. The Trek talk actually got me fired up to watch some Star Trek, so fair warning, you may need to set some tv time aside after listening to this show.

Bombad Radio: Episode 138 continues their discussion of the Star Wars Expanded Universe, this time diving into Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn trilogy. Unfortunately Jeremiah is absent on this episode. The hosts do a decent job of covering the books without revealing too much or anything too spoilery, so if you’re a new reader, you can still listen without any worries. That said, it was kind of an average show. I didn’t really get into it too much. It would have been nice if they could have probed some more interesting details or topics concerning the three best Star Wars novels ever written.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #16 features special guest Consetta Parker and a fun chat about her love for Star Wars, why it’s special, and how she ended up marrying a stormtrooper. It’s a nice interview and a good way to round out their interviews with the Full of Sith podcast hosts, though, they could still do one with Bobby in order to cover them all. Beyond that, they cover some listener feedback and The Bearded Trio weighs in with some more Jurassic World news. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

The Star Wars nears the end with issue #7 and just one more to go. One of the great things about this issue, though, is the Wookiees. What happens when General Skywalker recruits them in a war against the Empire? Well, it’s not a good outcome for the bad guys. Click here to read our full review.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Their “Superman Dies and Kermit is Framed” episode covers a little bit of Superman as they talk about the 1992 graphic novel The Death of Superman and whether DC should use that in their next movie. From there, they delve into the idea of television shows with movie endings before getting into some serious Muppets talk with special guest Ryan Dosier. It’s an entertaining episode and I really enjoyed the Muppets discussion.

The “Getting Inside Batman’s Head” episode changes gears as they dive into the Dark Knight. This is a really meaty episode as they cover some very cool insights into the character that is Batman with their special guest Dr. Travis Langley. If you’re a Batman fan, you will not want to miss this one.

Bombad Radio: Episode 135 continues their EU book series by covering some of the more prominent tie-in books for the Original Trilogy era. This includes a book-by-book breakdown of the Han Solo Trilogy written by A.C. Crispin, an overview of Shadows of the Empire by Steve Perry and some discussion of the Bounty Hunter Wars and Tales of anthologies. The Han Solo Trilogy gets focused on the most, and for good reason: it’s a great series. There are a few minor audio problems in this episode, but it’s still a good one to check out for those interested in the EU books set around the original films. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Earth 2 #22 has a deceiving cover, but still spins an interesting story with a good amount of Lois and Val action. There’s some decent character development and a bit of action, but fair warning, there’s a nasty cliffhanger. Click here to read our full review.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Full of Sith: Episode LVIII includes two interviews, both conducted by Bryan. One is with Billy Dee Williams and focuses mostly on conventions, fans and being in Star Wars. The second interview is with Wil Wheaton with a discussion on Star Wars board games since International TableTop Day is this Saturday. Aside from that, Bryan and Mike (Bobbie sits this episode out) discuss “This is Madness” and their thoughts on the match ups, Star Wars tattoos, binge watching The Clone Wars, naughty Star Wars Rebels pictures, as well as some listener feedback on Yoda, Force Priestesses, Anakin and redemption. Excellent discussion and intriguing interviews.

RebelForce Radio: Episode 3.28.14 is hosted by Jimmy Mac and Steve Glosson. They talk about RebelForce Radio going to Disney World for Star Wars Weekends this year. Scott Allen from the 501st Legion comes on talk about inducting Alan Ladd into the Legion. Plus they have Tom Kane on the show to talk about Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 6. Tom talks about TCW, Star Wars Rebels, dark Yoda, what would have happened if Yoda had lost his battle, voicing Yoda for “This is Madness” and more. Great episode and a must listen for TCW fans. I have to admit, I always enjoy the episodes with Steve a little more.
