Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Coffee with Kenobi: Rebels Reactions with Vanessa Marshall is a great interview diving deep into the character of Hera Syndulla (without any spoilers of course). Vanessa talks about Star Wars Rebels, the films and fandom.

Full of Sith: Episode LXVII features hosts Mike, Bryan and special host Amy Ratcliffe who fills in for Bobby this week. They talk about the Force for Change contest and video and some Episode VII rumors. Later in the show, Craig Dickinson joins them for more Star Wars in the classroom as his students finish up The Phantom Menace, knock out Attack of the Clones and move into Revenge of the Sith. What questions did the kids ask? What elements surprised them? Tune in to find out. It’s actually a pretty fun feature of the recent shows.

Geek Out Loud: Episode 89 is co-hosted by Teresa Delgado and features a great conversation with her and Steve recapping Star Wars Weekends and the RebelForce meetup. Afterwards they cover listener questions regarding Padme losing the will to live, why Return of the Jedi is the best film, and off the wall topics like Steve Glosson bobble head merchandise. They talk Disney, they talk movies, even Teresa’s husband Greg shows up. All in all, it’s a great show full of fun Star Wars conversation with two excellent Star Wars fans. Steve and Teresa are a winning combination as podcast hosts. Even though they had some technical difficulties in this show, I’d still mark them as the pick of the week in regards to Star Wars podcasts.

Jedi Journals: June 2014 Episode is definitely worth checking out. As usual, they cover book and comic news, recent releases, and upcoming releases. They also have special guests Erich and Joe from Star Wars Books on for just about the whole show. They do a reading from The Empire Striketh Back, talk about upcoming con events, and reveal some awesome news. At San Diego Comic Con the Del Rey booth will be giving away a special advance copy of John Jackson Miller’s A New Dawn with a variant Doug Wheatley cover and snippets from the other upcoming adult Star Wars novels in the back. If you’re heading to SDCC, this is a chance to get a full copy of A New Dawn months in advance of everyone else for free. Hearing Joe’s voice, I also finally make the connection to who Johnny Star Wars is. Plus I learned that OfficialPix has limited signed hardcover copies of Warwick Davis’ autobiography Size Matters Not. Pretty good deal for a signed hardcover. Overall, great episode to check out.
