Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Big Beautiful Podcast: Episode 23 has an interview with Star Wars author Tom Angleberger who wrote some of the Star Wars origami books. He talks about where his ideas come from, how Darth Paper came about, defending the Ewoks, writing Return of the Jedi with a different spin, a victorian flare, and what the other authors are up to. It’s a neat interview and worth checking out as it sheds light on books that don’t get the most attention on major Star Wars outlets.

Bombad Radio: Episode 204 kicks off with a little news, then they head into their interview with voice actors Ellen McLain and John Patrick Lowrie. They talk about their early work, getting into the business, working on games like Portal, Fear, Team Fortress, and even writing a novel. It’s a fun interview and worth checking out.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode #42 features a lot of interviews. First up is Jim Hill who they talk to about Star Wars Land at Disney World and Disneyland, from what’s known to what’s rumored. It’s an insightful conversation covering what will happen and the challenges involved. After an update from the Bearded Trio, they talk with Star Wars fan Torpedo Ted who was at D23 and shares the experience. Then they talk with Mark Van Ohlen about Star Wars Topps cards. While I don’t collect cards, I really like what they’re doing with those dark side cards with the skewed histories on the back. Those sound really neat. Lastly, they talk with Cole Horton who covers Star Wars and history. Lot of good guests packed into this one, though four back-to-back interviews was maybe a bit much. Felt like a long episode, and now looking back at it, it clocked in at 2 hours 41 minutes, so yeah, that’s a long one. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
