Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 80 is a bit of a short episode. Ed Cook fills in for Scott Allen as co-host, and this show focuses on 501st Legion troop reports and upcoming events. Nice to hear that the Legion had some pretty good charity success at Toronto Comic Con with over $6,000 raised with shoot-a-trooper. Good podcast to check out if you want to keep up to date on Legion news.

Assembly of Geeks:Grumpy Gamorrean Godzilla” covers a variety of geeky topics which a focus on television and film news and rumors. Lots of entertaining discussion, and I really enjoyed their gag with the giant Gamorrean trampling Mos Eisley. Good way to stay up on tv and movie news for sci-fi and superhero stuff.

Bombad Radio: Episode 131 has a nice interview with Star Wars voice actor David Ankrum who voiced Wedge in Star Wars: A New Hope. It’s a very upbeat interview as David talks about his job in Star Wars, the other film work he’s done, and how he transitioned into writing and working as a talent agent.

Episode 132 is hosted by Jeremiah and Jason and begins their discussion of the novels of the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Tearing apart and assigning praise, the hosts ambitiously go through nearly every Star Wars novel to give listeners and overview of the EU and what’s to come. In future episodes, they’ll be diving into deeper discussion on specific books, but in this episode they touch on all of them. If you’ve already the books, you may not agree with all their opinions, but I have to give them props for actually discussing each one and giving new readers an idea of what to expect. This would be an excellent episode to listen to if you’re new to the EU and would like a crash course on the books.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Egon Spengler & the Toy Story Theory Episode includes some fun Ghostbuster references in honor of Harold Ramis. They also talk Star Wars vs Star Trek, a theory about Andy’s mom in the Toy Story films, and some recent news and rumors for television and movies. Fun discussion as always.

Bill, Ted & Ahsoka’s Excellent Adventures Episode combines Star Wars: The Clone Wars with Bill & Ted. If you haven’t watched TCW Season 6 yet, don’t worry, they don’t dive into any of it so there’s no spoilers, but they do talk about the show. They also talk about Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, the possibility of a third film, and the movie’s 25th anniversary. And speaking of 25th anniversaries, they cover what other geeky films are celebrating their 25th this year. Plus they talk GothamTransformers 4 and present their geek awards for 2013.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #14 features special guest Tha Mike Pilot (from Full of Sith podcast) and a very excellent discussion on the most iconic Star Wars character, Darth Vader. From the imposing figure in the black mask and the father seeing his son as a Jedi, to the young man who fell to the dark side, they cover all aspects of Anakin and Vader. Great conversation to listen to. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

If you like horror novels and Stephen King, then you might want to check out The Troop by Nick Cutter. It’s a story about a boy scout troop on an isolated island…with a monster. As the story progresses, things go bad. Very bad. And with story told so well, you can’t help but continue to see how it will turn out. I have to say, I was really impressed by this book and will definitely be checking out the other books by this author. Click here to read our full review.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. I did some catching up, so there are quite a few this week.

Bombad Radio: Episode 129 has an interview with Star Wars: The Old Republic writer Charles Boyd who talks about what the game designers are working on next giving gamers an idea of what to expect in the way of new content, and what isn’t likely. He also mentions the kind of studies they’ve done to studying player’s behaviors, which was pretty interesting. Very informative episode.

Episode 130 is a Star Wars free-for-all as multiple guests all weigh in on a variety of Star Wars topics. They talk about Mark Hamill and Liam Neeson being in The Clone Wars Season 6, Episode VII news and rumors, and lots more.

Coffee with Kenobi: Rebels Reactions #3 features guest Craig Dickinson as he and the hosts discuss Star Wars Rebels. As can be expected, there’s some insightful commentary on the characters and themes of the show as they cover Kanan, Ezra and Zeb (note this was prior to the reveals of Hera and Sabine). I rather liked the observation regarding the biblical sounding names and it’ll be interesting if the show goes any further into that theme. Nice discussion and worth a listen. Looking forward to hearing them discuss the new female characters as I’m very intrigued by Sabine.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode #5 starts out with guest Lisa Granshaw (The Daily Dot) and a Star Wars Rebels discussion which also touches on the controversial male orientation of Disney and Hasbro’s marketing for the show. Afterwards special guest Clare Grant joins them to talk Team Unicorn and lots of other fun Star Wars and geeky topics. Great show, so make sure this one hits your playlist.
