Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 173 features special guest David Collins as they talk about his podcast Star Wars Oxygen, whether they’ll cover video game music, Sam Witwer’s lyrics to The Force Unleashed music, how Republic Commando was slightly inspired by Halo, the limitations of memory on video game music, doing the sound work for the amazing Star Wars: The Old Republic trailers, Darth Malgus being voiced by Julian Glover’s son (Julian Glover being General Veers from The Empire Strikes Back) and much more. Whether it’s mixing sound for video games or recounting the old days when Sam Witwer would just hang out, Dave covers a lot of territory and fun stories. Awesome episode.

Full of Sith: Episode LXXXVIII features the hosts of Fangirls Going Rogue Teresa Delgado and Tricia Barr as they join Mike, Bryan and Bobby for some really interesting conversations. Chief among them is their discussion of Star Wars Rebels, it’s placement on DisneyXD, ratings, marketing it as a boy’s show when there’s a significant female audience, they paywall, and whether it can get a season 3 if it stays on DisneyXD. They they have a character discussion on Darth Bane, the creator of the rule of two, as Teresa educates everyone on his background, what he did to make him so memorable, and the books by Drew Karpyshyn. Really nice episode and definitely one to check out.

Episode XC features guest Pablo Hidalgo as they talk about the dark times, how Pablo was introduced to Star Wars, sharing memories of their fandom, and much more. Very cool interview and well worth listening to. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: “All About Sheev (and Other Star Wars Names)” tackles the Marvel and DC movie lineups as well as movies heading to TV. Special guest Justin Bulger stops by to talk about Palpatine’s first name and Star Wars names in general. Other topics in this show include actors up for Marvel roles, and some Harry Potter discussion. Great episode all around.

Coffee with Kenobi: Rebels Reactions – Droids in Distress episode features guest Matt Moore. They get into the depth of Zeb’s character, the use of post traumatic stress disorder for him, how the Kanan comic is now being turned into an ongoing series rather than just a miniseries, Kanan’s character transition between A New Dawn and Star Wars Rebels, and R2 as the ultimate mole. Very nice on-topic, revealing discussions. I really enjoyed their guest for this episode and all of the insights he was able to bring to the topic. After the show, the hosts have their kids on to get their opinions on Star Wars Rebels.

Rebels Reactions – Fighter Flight episode includes guest Teresa Delgado. They cover the background role of the female characters up to this point of the series, Chopper’s mischievousness, TIE fighters and the lighter nature of this episode.

When it comes to escapism, Martha Wells has created one of my favorite realms to disappear in. The Stories of the Raksura: Volume One is a collection of short stories and novellas set in the Three Worlds. It reveals key moments in the history of the characters, as well as sharing new adventures. It also lives up to same level of quality and entertainment as the regular novels. If you’re a fan of the previous stories, you won’t want to miss out on this one. Click here to read our full review.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:Dr. Doom vs The Muppets” is a fun episode covering Dark Crystal and Labyrinth sequels, a Ghostbusters reboot with an all female cast, Tricia’s report from Geek Girl Con, a Batman discussion and Michael Keaton’s comments on the role, plus the Lego Batman movie. They talk about the upcoming Archie vs Predator comic and propose Dr. Doom vs the Muppets. And there’s tv coverage for The Flash, Arrow, Gotham, and more. Great episode filled with tons of entertaining topics.

Bombad Radio: Episode 172 features an awesome interview with Dr. Travis Langley who talks about psychology and Batman. One of the great aspects of the interview is an observation he made. Batman is a hero define by his psychology, and his villains are in turn defined by their psychology. Dr. Langley digs into some of Batman’s most iconic villains and their various psychological issues. It’s a very intriguing combination of topics and a must listen to for Batman fans.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #25 includes special guest Ryder Waldron who talks about Salt Lake Comic Con 2014. The Bearded Trio provides some Spielberg updates and Jurassic World news. They reveal a new podcast that will be featured on their site called Legends Library and they share a decent sized audio clip from the hosts and their thoughts and experiences with the old Star Wars EU. It sounds interesting so I’ll have to check it out. Afterwards, Cory and Dan interview voice actress Catherine Taber (the voice of Padme from Star Wars: The Clone Wars). There are some audio problems with the interview. The first half and the last five questions are all fine, but in between there is a good sized chunk that got garbled by Skype. It only affected Cat’s audio, and it was only for part of the interview, so it’s still worth checking out. They asked some really good questions and Cat gave some good answers, really digging into the character of Padme.
