Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 190 features an interview with writer and editor Stuart Moore who talks about E.G.O.S., Zodiac and Marvel’s Civil War. I really liked the comments he had about Zodiac and what it was like working with Stan Lee on that project. Very cool interview.

Episode 191 kicks off with some Star Wars news, then heads into their Star Wars Rebels discussion as they talk about the their initial thoughts heading into the show, their thoughts on season one, and how it compares to The Clone Wars. They do delve into spoilers, but I think most fans at this point have already watched all of season one, so enjoy.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode #17 starts with a Star Wars Rebels season finale discussion, dives into some listener feedback, features a quick Oscar discussion, and some more fashion tips from Amy Ratcliffe on customizing accessories. They also have an interview with Jennifer Landa about her Star Wars wedding, and this episode’s character discussion focuses on Leia. Great episode as always, with a really nice balance of topics in this one. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 189 packs in a couple interviews. First up is Gabe Smith and Ryan Merrill, the writer and artist for the Human comic series. They talk about all the work that goes into getting a comic started, funded and promoted. They talk about the writing, the artwork and going to conventions. For anyone interesting in getting a comic project started or in learning more how the process works, it’s a nice interview to check out. Afterwards they have an interview with Darren Hayes and Tim Stanton from the He Said He Said podcast. It’s a fun interview, but also a random one as they talk about Savage Garden (Darren’s band), Star Wars and how they met. Overall, a fun episode.

Dead Talks: Episode #35 is hosted by Justin, John, and Antoinette as they review The Walking Dead episode “Forget”. Now this is my first step into the world of The Walking Dead podcasts, and as a fan of TWD, I absolutely loved this podcast. The hosts are great, they do a terrific job of covering the television episode and all the cool moments, plus there’s some great observations of comic elements which I would have missed as I haven’t read the comics yet. I’ll definitely be checking out more of this show as it’s a great way to get your Walking Dead fix.

Fangirl Chat: the Strange Magic episode is hosted by Tricia and Kay as they give a very kind review of Strange Magic. It includes a quick description of the movie, discussion of George’s comments about the movie, great animated moments, bad moments, the good and bad storytelling, and more. The episode ended kind of abruptly, and I have to admit the discussion didn’t have the best flow. I kind of got the feeling it was hard to say a lot of positive things about the movie without being critical of it’s missteps and missed opportunities. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

501stCast: Episode 87 touches on the Star Wars costume exhibit in Seattle, troop reports, the Disney Star Wars Half-Marathon (including a mention of the BB-8 cosplayers, ie. Rich and Sarah from Skywalker Through Neverland), and Star Wars Celebration Anaheim news and info.

Assembly of Geeks:Remembering Leonard Nimoy” features guests Lauren Gallaway and Kayla LaFrance as they share comments from Star Trek’s cast and crew on the passing of Leonard Nimoy, they play audio clips from Leonard, reveal the story behind the hand gesture, talk about his music, his books and their favorite Spock moments. It’s a touching farewell to an icon.

Coffee With Kenobi: Rebels Reactions “Rebel Resolve” features guest Darth Taxus as they cover the penultimate episode of Star Wars Rebels season one. It’s a pretty good review of the characters and themes of the episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:Failing X-Men, Reviving Spider-Man & Missing The Goonies” has lots of the usual geeky discussion. They talk about movies that should have ended sooner, they have a review of Kingsmen: The Secret Service, they cover some news topics like Harry Potter Funko items, and the conundrum of Marvel being a comic book company or a movie company. They also tackle the movie The Goonies and whether that type of movie works any more or whether child adventure movies have changed into something else. Lots of interesting topics and fun discussion.

Coffee With Kenobi: Rebels Reactions “Call to Action” episode features Tarkin voice actor Stephen Stanton who adds some excellent behind the scenes insight to the episode as he talks about his character and the show. They also talk some about Star Wars: The Clone Wars and James Luceno’s book Tarkin. Excellent episode and one you’ll definitely want to catch.

Via The Hollywood Reporter, later this year we will get a five episode series called LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales. The 22 minute episodes will air on Disney XD and will present a new take on the six films as seen through the eyes of R2-D2 and C-3PO. Sounds like a pretty cool idea and if Michael Price is onboard for these, then we’ll certainly be in for some good entertainment.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:A-Force, Walking Dead, Star Wars Battle Pod & The Marvel Experience” covers a lot of stuff. First up, the announcement of an all female Avengers team called A-Force, discussion on whether John Diggle is John Stewart aka Green Lantern on Arrow, Teen Titan news and rumors and finally some coverage of The Marvel Experience (an interactive Marvel exhibit/roleplay). They also talk about The Walking Dead and Star Wars Battle Pod and throughout the episode they are joined by Pat Loika, Tony Kim, and Lauren Galloway.

Sci-Fi Psychology, Geeky Answers & Blood Elf Selfies” …goes into a pretty heavy discussion on Star Trek vs. Star Wars psychology. In this case they’re pulling a lot of stuff from an article on Yahoo News which in turn is based off a panel that was at Wondercon 2013. They give the panel and the panelists a bit of a rough time. Having heard Dr. Andrea Letamendi talk more in depth about the panel, and in general the psychology of different aspects of fandom, it’s actually a lot better than what they make it out to be. Aside from that, this episode dives into some planned Arrow books (though I wish they would have mentioned the authors involved), some comments Joss Whedon made about taking a break after Avengers: Age of Ultron, and some news on Supergirl and more.

Coffee With Kenobi: Rebels Reactions “Vision of Hope” episode includes guest Joe Tovano as they talk a little about his Padme article before heading into their thoughts on the show. They talk about Ezra’s training at the beginning of the episode and his acting on instinct, Senator Trayvis and the trap, the significance of Ezra trying to reveal his real name to Zare, Chopper taking out another droid and the success of Kanan and Ezra versus Obi-Wan and Anakin. Capping off the episode is their five questions for Joe. Good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Generations of Geek Fandom kicks off with a recap of everyone holiday geek gifts. Then they talk about the movies coming out this year, they take a side route on Howdy Doody, then dive into the Star Trek television shows they grew up with. Along with the success of superhero movies and many other topics, there’s lots of fun, geeky discussion in this episode.

Great Villain Voices & Great Grandma Flash includes discussion on the Batman LEGO movie, the Ant-Man teaser, The Flash, Arrow, Gotham and crossovers. Then they dig into a list discussing the best villain voices of all time.

The Arrow & The Flash on Caffeine is dedicated entirely to the Arrow and The Flash television shows. This one is hosted by just Scott and Amy as they go in depth on the shows, the characters, their thoughts, the possibility of crossovers, and where they think the shows are heading. As someone who has yet to watch either show, it was an interesting way to get exposed to them. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 185 is their first release from their trip to Salt Lake Comic Con FanX. In this episode they have interviews with Jess Harnell and Rob Paulson. They talk about doing voices, Animaniacs, and Jess mentions Rock Sugar. It’s funny because I’ve been listening to a lot of Rock Out Loud lately and Steve often mentions Rock Sugar, so I’ve grown familiar with the band. However, I forgot he also did the voice of Wakko. It’s also odd just how close Rob Paulson’s normal voice is to Yakko. Afterwards they talk with legendary comic artist Neal Adams who talks about Batman, Gotham, Green Arrow, X-Men and the comics industry. Really nice interview. Following that is an interview with Star Trek designer Jon Eaves who talks about working on the various films and tv shows. Then they have a great interview with Star Wars artist Dave Dorman who talks about getting his first gig with Star Wars, his latest work with Marvel on several comic cover variations, and the deal with Star Wars Celebration Anaheim (which Dave mentions there might still be a chance that he can go). Lots of great interviews making this an excellent episode to check out.

Coffee With Kenobi: Rebels Reactions “Idiot’s Array” episode features guest Dennis Keithly as they talk about the Star Wars Rebels episode, Lando’s presence, Hera’s prominent role, and the use of Lando as a divide and conquer mechanism to the crew which turns into a message of unity for them all to stick together. It’s a fun review of the episode.

Full of Sith: Tasia Valenza Special Release features an interview with the voice actress for Shaak Tii (and many more characters). First off, Tasia’s audio is superb, which makes this a great interview to listen to. She talks about switching from on camera acting to voice acting, working on Star Wars, doing conventions, working with Mark Hamill, thoughts on The Force Awakens and the excitement of seeing the original cast again on screen, and much more.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Coffee With Kenobi: Book Chat with Jordan D. White, Marvel’s Star Wars editor, dives into how he got the gig, his enthusiasm for the project, working with the story group, what lines they have coming out, and how they’re approaching them. It’s a great interview and definitely worth catching.

Rebels Reactions – “Path of the Jedi” features guest Tom Gross (Star Wars in the Classroom) as talk about the episode of Star Wars Rebels. I really liked how they covered the symbolism in the episode which certainly set it apart from other reviews.

Show #30 starts out with a nice conversation with Lillian Skye who talks about her fandom, writing a college paper on the impact of Star Wars, and working for Star Wars Underworld. The Bearded Trio mentions that there will be a new Jurassic World trailer during the Super Bowl. Then the show heads into an interview with Mark Bellomo, the author of The Ultimate Guide to Vintage Star Wars Action Figures, 1977-1985. Mark talks about vintage Kenner Star Wars figures, vehicles and playsets, the challenge of including prices, the difficulty of deciding what to include and what not to include, his choice of narrative and using the Expanded Universe, his previous works and the extent of his collection, as well as his overall passion for Star Wars and collecting. Really a great interview and well worth listening to as I’ve seen his book out there but I didn’t know anything about the author, which always makes me skeptical about picking up the book. Now, having heard the interview and learning who Mark is, I’m definitely going to check out his book. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
