Kicking off the new year, here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:Looking Back at a Geeky 2014” includes their thoughts on the Fall 2014 tv shows like Blacklist, Revenge, Goldbergs, Gotham, Star Wars Rebels, Arrow, Flash and Sons of Anarchy. They don’t go too in depth on any of them but they do touch on them and their general thoughts. They talk about the Topps style release of The Force Awakens character names, they cover the female Ghostbuster cast rumors, the idea of a Batman dream sequence for Dark Knight Rises, Marc Singer coming to Arrow, and their favorite Geek movies of the year. Plus there’s their good bye segment to Tricia as this is her last episode. Certainly a great episode to check out.

Bombad Radio: Episode 180 is a team gathering as they get everyone together for a Christmas-cast. They talk all things geek and Star Wars, from director cuts vs theatrical releases, to film scores and who their favorite The Force Awakens characters will be. It’s a fun episode. The audio starts out a little rough for the first couple minutes but clears up after that, so stick with it. They also preview a little bit of the next release of their Zillo Rising audiodrama.

Coffee With Kenobi: Legends Library’s “Dark Force Rising” episode covers the book with an extensive overview of the plot, great for anyone who hasn’t read the book and is looking to find out what it’s about. The hosts work well together and keep things interesting. If you’re looking for an EU book podcast, this one is worth tuning into. After their overview of the book, they consider the qualifications of a recommended reading list and ask listeners what they think the standards should be. Personally, that’s always a hard question to answer as everyone’s reading habits are different. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 86 features an interview with David Collins on The Comlink, audio of George Lucas discussing his museum, and the usual roundup of troop reports. Even if you’re not looking to catch up with what the 501st is up to, this episode is worth checking out for the David Collins interview. All the troop reports are in the later half of the show if you’re looking to skip them. Personally, I kinda like hearing the troop reports as it’s a good way to stay in touch with what’s going on with the Legion.

Assembly of Geeks:More Star Trek, Hunger Games & Geek Gifts” covers some trailer discussion of Terminator: Genisys, Admiral 80’s thoughts on The Force Awakens teaser trailer, Star Trek 3 discussion, Hunger Games origin stories, movie awards, geek gift ideas, fun with tractor beams, and an introduction to Tricia’s replacement, Amy Marie.

Bombad Radio: Episode 179 features a nice interview the Mark Newbold. Mark talks about getting into fandom, running websites like Lightsaber and now Jedi News, his thoughts on Marvel getting the license for Star Wars back, and other Star Wars topics. Mark is humble as always and it’s a good interview. If you’re a fan of Radio 1138 or visit the site Jedi News UK, you should check out the episode as it’ll give you a better idea of who Mark is and what he and James Burns have accomplished.
