Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Coffee With Kenobi: Freddie Prinze Jr. Interview features several podcasts as they interviewed Freddie at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. It’s a short interview, but Freddie covered some very intriguing topics from elaborating on Hera and Kanan’s relationship to giving out some details on Kanan and Rex’s relationship. He even gives a surprising yet compelling defense of risque fan art. Definitely worth a listen. The audio starts out a little hard to hear but picks up pretty quickly.

Coffee Chat with Jim Hill and Len Testa is a good one. In this episode Len and Jim dig in deep with some background and history on Disney and their relationship with Star Wars which is an intriguing and entertaining discussion. They talk about the plans Disney has for Star Wars attractions, and even touch on some of the differences between Disneyland and Disney World.

Dead Talks: Episode #37 discusses the episode “Try” with another excellent breakdown of the show and some great character analyzation. While it may be a long wait for next season, there’s plenty of time to go back and catch up on the podcast. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
