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…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 182 starts out with Jeremiah and Zach talking about tv shows and Nobility. Then they break to their interview with Adrienne Wilkinson who talks about Xena: Warrior Princess, The Force Unleashed, voice work, acting, and Sam Witwer’s impressive knowledge of Star Wars. It’s a nice interview with some good behind-the-scenes looks at various shows and Star Wars projects.

Coffee With Kenobi: Show #29 is a look back at 2014 with special guest Rob Wainfur (The Bearded Trio). Together they recap their year in Star Wars, their guests, interviews and major events of the year. If you’ve missed any episodes, this is a great way to find out what you need to go back and listen to.

Full of Sith: Episode XCVIII Bobby, Bryan and Amy share what they’ve been up to, before Bobby moves things along to a variety of topics, keeping the pace moving, and the discussion flowing. They touch on Gary Whitta leaving the Star Wars standalone movie, their thoughts on Star Wars Rebels “Path of the Jedi”, the fates of Kanan and Ezra, who Fulcrum might be (Leia or Ahsoka?), whether Kanan is really a Jedi cowboy, whether Hera has been pushed to the side, the impact of Yoda, new The Force Awakens casting leaks, the actors from The Raid, and movie posters. Great episode covering a lot of ground. A nice burst of Star Wars. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 86 features an interview with David Collins on The Comlink, audio of George Lucas discussing his museum, and the usual roundup of troop reports. Even if you’re not looking to catch up with what the 501st is up to, this episode is worth checking out for the David Collins interview. All the troop reports are in the later half of the show if you’re looking to skip them. Personally, I kinda like hearing the troop reports as it’s a good way to stay in touch with what’s going on with the Legion.

Assembly of Geeks:More Star Trek, Hunger Games & Geek Gifts” covers some trailer discussion of Terminator: Genisys, Admiral 80’s thoughts on The Force Awakens teaser trailer, Star Trek 3 discussion, Hunger Games origin stories, movie awards, geek gift ideas, fun with tractor beams, and an introduction to Tricia’s replacement, Amy Marie.

Bombad Radio: Episode 179 features a nice interview the Mark Newbold. Mark talks about getting into fandom, running websites like Lightsaber and now Jedi News, his thoughts on Marvel getting the license for Star Wars back, and other Star Wars topics. Mark is humble as always and it’s a good interview. If you’re a fan of Radio 1138 or visit the site Jedi News UK, you should check out the episode as it’ll give you a better idea of who Mark is and what he and James Burns have accomplished.

Today we have a very special interview conducted by Doug McCausland. A couple weeks ago Doug did an outstanding interview with author Kevin J. Anderson covering the 20th anniversary of the Jedi Academy Trilogy. This week Doug continues his series of Star Wars author interviews with Kathy Tyers.


In the early to mid 90’s, Kathy Tyers was one of the most prominent authors of the Bantam-era Star Wars Expanded Universe alongside Timothy Zahn & Kevin J. Anderson. Her first contribution to Star Wars lore was 1994’s The Truce at Bakura, taking place immediately after the events of Return of the Jedi. She would later go on to contribute several short stories to Kevin J. Anderson’s Tales From The… series, including “Prize Pelt: The Tale of Bossk” and “We Don’t Do Weddings: The Band’s Tale”, as well as the New Jedi Order installment Balance Point.
