Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 188 starts out with some Star Wars: Battlefront rumors then cuts over to their interview with voice actor Trevor Devall. This one turns out to be a great interview. Trevor talks about some of the roles he’s done, voicing Rocket Raccoon, dubbing anime and even attending My Little Pony cons. Throughout the interview he does a lot of spontaneous voices and it’s a lot of fun to listen to. If you’ve listened to some of the recent voice actor interviews and have been a little let down, this one is a real pick me up. I’d love to hear them interview Trevor again in the future.

Episode 187 features an interview with voice actor Cam Clarke. Cam talks a little about voicing Leonardo in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, how his dream job was being Snoopy in a Charlie Brown musical, doing voice work for the He-man reboot, voicing Patrick Stewart, getting letters from Star Wars fans for his small role in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and coming from a family of talented entertainers. It’s an interesting interview but Cam keeps it kind of mellow and doesn’t do too much in the way of voices and doesn’t have too many really interesting stories about voice acting. Plus the audio gets a little wonky every now and then. Unless you’re dead set on listening to all the interviews, I’d recommend skipping this one and hitting episode 188 instead.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode 32 starts off with some standalone movie news and Celebration news, then the hosts talk with their wives and a very interesting discussion evolves. It’s a fun episode with them talking about what they know about Star Wars, what it’s like being married to a Star Wars fan, and they even have a Star Wars quiz. Afterwards there’s some listener feedback, but all in all, it’s a good show. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Dark Horse Comics has printed a lot of Star Wars comics over the years. They’ve done regular issues, issues with heavy carded stock covers, omnibuses, trade paperbacks, hardcover omnibuses, hardcover trade paperbacks and large format hardcovers. However, I don’t think any of them have been as fancy as The Star Wars Deluxe HC Edition. Click here to read our full review.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:A-Force, Walking Dead, Star Wars Battle Pod & The Marvel Experience” covers a lot of stuff. First up, the announcement of an all female Avengers team called A-Force, discussion on whether John Diggle is John Stewart aka Green Lantern on Arrow, Teen Titan news and rumors and finally some coverage of The Marvel Experience (an interactive Marvel exhibit/roleplay). They also talk about The Walking Dead and Star Wars Battle Pod and throughout the episode they are joined by Pat Loika, Tony Kim, and Lauren Galloway.

Sci-Fi Psychology, Geeky Answers & Blood Elf Selfies” …goes into a pretty heavy discussion on Star Trek vs. Star Wars psychology. In this case they’re pulling a lot of stuff from an article on Yahoo News which in turn is based off a panel that was at Wondercon 2013. They give the panel and the panelists a bit of a rough time. Having heard Dr. Andrea Letamendi talk more in depth about the panel, and in general the psychology of different aspects of fandom, it’s actually a lot better than what they make it out to be. Aside from that, this episode dives into some planned Arrow books (though I wish they would have mentioned the authors involved), some comments Joss Whedon made about taking a break after Avengers: Age of Ultron, and some news on Supergirl and more.

Coffee With Kenobi: Rebels Reactions “Vision of Hope” episode includes guest Joe Tovano as they talk a little about his Padme article before heading into their thoughts on the show. They talk about Ezra’s training at the beginning of the episode and his acting on instinct, Senator Trayvis and the trap, the significance of Ezra trying to reveal his real name to Zare, Chopper taking out another droid and the success of Kanan and Ezra versus Obi-Wan and Anakin. Capping off the episode is their five questions for Joe. Good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Book Review: ‘Working Stiff’ by Kevin J. Anderson

The Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. books are a joy to read but over the years Kevin J. Anderson has written quite a few short stories to go along with them. Unfortunately those stories have been scattered about, some as individual eBooks, some published in anthologies with other authors that I’ve been hesitant to pick up. But now with Working Stiff, all of those stories have been combine together in one anthology dedicated completely to Dan Shamble and his unnatural adventures. Click here to read our full review.

Black Series: ROTJ Luke

Return of the Jedi Luke is part of Wave 5 of Hasbro’s 6-inch Black Series figures. The slim figure comes in his ominous black clothes with just a lightsaber and an optional chest piece (to pull off the open tunic look). The initial figs that hit the pegs came with the usual array of paint apps, and none of them really caught my eye. However, I finally found one with a paint app that I liked, and this Luke followed me home.

Assembly of Geeks: Generations of Geek Fandom kicks off with a recap of everyone holiday geek gifts. Then they talk about the movies coming out this year, they take a side route on Howdy Doody, then dive into the Star Trek television shows they grew up with. Along with the success of superhero movies and many other topics, there’s lots of fun, geeky discussion in this episode.

Great Villain Voices & Great Grandma Flash includes discussion on the Batman LEGO movie, the Ant-Man teaser, The Flash, Arrow, Gotham and crossovers. Then they dig into a list discussing the best villain voices of all time.

The Arrow & The Flash on Caffeine is dedicated entirely to the Arrow and The Flash television shows. This one is hosted by just Scott and Amy as they go in depth on the shows, the characters, their thoughts, the possibility of crossovers, and where they think the shows are heading. As someone who has yet to watch either show, it was an interesting way to get exposed to them. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
