Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: “Guardians of the Galaxy, Deadpool & Ivy Doomkitty” episode starts with an interview with cosplayer Ivy Doomkitty. Then they talk about the leaked Deadpool test footage with Ryan Reynolds and cover some other news and rumors. The main discussion, however, is Guardians of the Galaxy which all three hosts managed to see. They share their thoughts and how they thought it ranked with the other Marvel movies.

Bombad Radio: August Free-For-All Episode features Jeremiah, James and Jesse. They cover the leaked Deadpool footage featuring Ryan Reynolds, Age of Ultron news, lots of SDCC stuff, a strange Spider-Man statue in Korea, other Spider-Man news, Flash, Gotham, Mad Max: Fury Road, Sinister 6, Wonder Woman, Dwayne Johnson and even a little bit about Agent Carter. It’s a jam packed movie and tv discussion episode.

Coffee with Kenobi:A Cup of Clone Wars – The Disappeared Parts I & II” features special guests Laird Malamed (Indy Cast) and Chris Hamilton (Star Wars Kidscast) as they cover the Jar Jar/Mace episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season Six. From Mace’s treatment of Jar Jar, the music, Mother Talzin and all the Indy nods, they cover a wide range of topics. Fun discussion to check out.

Full of Sith: Episode LXXVII is a great show features guests Dan and Cory from Coffee with Kenobi. The whole gang weighs in on Star Wars Rebels, Kevin Kiner, Greg Weisman and even some Leia discussion. Lots of great topics and definitely worth checking out.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:Looking Back on Comic-Con & Looking Forward to the Quest” gives a recap of SDCC from the Wonder Woman reveal to the Flash pilot and everything else. Justin Cavender joins them to talk about being at the con and some of the panels. They also play some clips of interviews with the producers of The Quest, talk about Robert Downey Jr. doing Iron Man 4, Dwayne Johnson possibly being in Shazam, and the J.J. Abrams Force for Change video.

Big Pop Fun: Episode #104 features an excellent interview with legendary stuntman Ted White. Ted has some great stories. He talks about working with John Wayne, what he was like, being Wayne’s stuntman and doing movies like Rio Bravo and Hatari. In fact Ted has some pretty wild stories about Hatari. He also talks about actors Ben Johnson and Jeff Bridges, his work on Fast and the Furious, and training stuntmen. Excellent interview that provides some insight on Hollywood, stuntmen and some legendary actors.

Bombad Radio: Episode 158 features their interview with voice actor Bill Ratner. Let me just say that this one has some good stuff. Bill talks about doing narration, voice over, impressions, there’s lots of joking around and Bill is just a funny guy. He’s also a great storyteller. He talks about his work for the old G.I. Joe cartoon and his newer work like Mass Effect. It’s a very enjoyable episode and the kind of show anyone can listen to and have fun, no matter what your fandom. I recommend checking it out, it’s another one of Bombad Radio’s priceless interviews.

Sharknado 2Always ready to do a public service, Roqoo Depot would like to remind everyone that Sharknado 2 premiers tonight on Syfy at 8 PM Eastern.  And in case you were in a cave somewhere on another planet and missed Sharknado The Original, it will play prior to its eagerly anticipated sequel at 6 PM Eastern.

Correction: that’s 9 Eastern and 8 Central (7 Eastern for original Sharknado).  Sorry, I was looking at my own listing times.  My bad.

Warner Bros & DC Entertainment had some reveals about the tv show, Arrow at SDCC.  A third season villain was announced: Ra’s Al Ghul.  The Season three teaser trailer was long on info we already know, and short on new stuff, but we do know Canary will be back, and there will be a new player in town evidently trying to take over Queen Consolidated.  Now if only someone can get Thea to stop whining so much.  And make sense as a character.

As an added bonus, when a fan requested it, Stephen Amell flashed his very nicely ripped abs.
