Peter V. Brett can write a long novel that kick’s ass every chapter from cover to cover, but trying to capture that same magic can be hard when condensing it to short form. Nonetheless, Brett shows he write awesome novella just as well as a full length book. Fans of The Demon Cycle series would be remiss if they didn’t check out Messenger’s Legacy.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Glenn Panel features audio from the Glenn Moreshower panel from Salt Lake Comic Con. While you probably won’t recognize his name, you would recognize his face and voice as he’s been in a lot of movies in small roles. He talks about show business and Hollywood and is actually really funny. He tells some good stories and has a hilarious tip for people to get over their nervousness. I recommend checking this one out, it’s a lot of fun.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode #36 is hosted by Dan and Jeff as they talk Star Wars news. Corey joins them for an experimental review of A New Hope done as if it’s the first time they saw it back in the day which is kind of corny but also funny. Then they have audio of a radio segment they did, an interview with Lou Mongello who talks Star Wars and Disney World (good guest), and they wrap things up with a collection of hilarious outtakes and then some listener feedback. Great episode. I also want to give a shout out to Jeff for filling in for Corey. He does a superb job. Fans of the show won’t be disappointed.

Celebration Anaheim Recap features their coverage of days three and four of Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. It’s recorded on their way home from the airport, so the audio is a little raw, but it’s still worth a listen as they have some good stories on what they did, who they met, and what happened.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Age of Ultron Declassified is their discussion of the film. They touch on the characters, the things they did and didn’t like, and Joss Whedon’s role in it all. It’s a fun discussion, but it’s not the only topic in this show. They also cover tv show renewals and cancellations, Universal doing a Nintendo theme park, Captain America: Civil War, and Legends of Tomorrow. Great episode overall.

Comic Book Noob: Episode 1 covers the comic characters Ultron and the Vision. Hosted by Scott Murray (Assembly of Geeks), Matt Moore and Regina Davis, they dig into the comic characters discussing their origins, their character arcs, the differences with the movie portrayals of the characters, as well as the similarities. It’s an excellent discussion and very timely, perfect for anyone who has seen Age of Ultron and would like to know more about the comic book characters of Ultron and the Vision.

Fly Casual: Episode 38 is a news and toy report episode. They start off with a Flash/DC/Marvel discussion, then dive into the Vanity Fair Star Wars article and pictures. They talk about Josh Trank leaving Star Wars, Disney Infinity 3.0, then head into toy news with Hot Wheels mini-ships. Fun episode with their typical entertaining discussion. I rather enjoyed their feedback on Disney Infinity as I haven’t played any of the iterations of that game. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Star Wars Celebration: Revenge of the Sith 3D episode is hosted by Jeremiah and Jason as Jason talks about seeing Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith in 3D at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. He compares the 3D quality of all three prequel films, summarizes Dennis Muren’s comments on doing the 3D effects for ROTS, and they talk about the screenings in general. Kind of a neat inside look since I haven’t seen any of the films in 3D. Interesting to hear how far ROTS has come with the latest 3D effects.

Brews and Blasters: Episode #20 features special guest Riley Blanton (Star Wars Report) and is hosted by Joe Tavano. The episode starts out with a little coffee discussion before the meander into some Star Wars and then dig into the Vanity Fair The Force Awakens article. At the end, they do a quick review of Age of Ultron and talk about Whedon’s rift with Marvel. It’s a very casual episode and there are some technical difficulties, but you might want to check it out.

Cloud City Casino: Episode 002 features guest Mark Hurliman as they talk about Celebration. Though, to be honest, it’s mostly Mark talking. Michael gives Mark plenty of room to cover his trip to Disneyland and Celebration with the family, sharing the trial and tribulations, as well as the awesome moments. It’s a fun episode with good audio quality and a great guest making it worth checking out. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
