Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 162 is actually a remix of two old episodes featuring an interview with actor, director and voice actor Kristoffer Tabori. For the first time, they present the two part interview in one seamless episode. I hadn’t hear this one before, so it was a fun interview to listen to. Kris talk about the work he’s done, voicing HK-47 in KOTOR, auditioning for Star Wars: A New Hope and shares a lot of fun Hollywood stories.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #23 starts off with some Star Wars Rebels discussion as they cover the 7 minute preview clip. The Bearded Trio chimes in with a quick interview with Cory Dee Williams. Afterwards, Dan and Cory have a spoiler free Guardians of the Galaxy chat. Then there’s the main feature: their interview with author Adam Bray on the Star Wars Rebels: The Visual Guide. Adam talks about his travel books, working with different teams to make the Visual Guide, and some fun general Star Wars discussion.

Full of Sith: Episode LXXVIII is their “Rumor Control” show focusing on the latest Star Wars Episode VII rumors and possible leaks. If you’re avoid rumors, you’ll definitely want to skip this one. However, if you want to catch up on all the latest rumors, this is a great episode to listen to. They cover the Stormtrooper helmets, Han Solo’s outfits, the cyborg/inquisitor Vader-villain, and a very nice breakdown of how all of these rumors might flow together. The show also starts out with some listener feedback covering previous topics like Shadows of the Empire, evil Yoda, etc. It’s a good episode to check out.
