Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 124 features an interview with author Richard Lee Byers covering his latest book, The Reaver, which is part of the Forgotten Realms The Sundering series. As with most of Bombad Radio’s interviews, this one is really good. While spoiler free, they still dive into the nature and subject matter of the book, touch on Richard’s career experience in psychology (and how that has helped or not helped his career), and take a look behind the scenes at the creation of The Sundering series.

Episode 122 features an interview with Benton Jew, one of the storyboard artists for The Phantom Menace, and a longtime ILM employee. Benton talks about storyboarding, working with George Lucas and how he differs from other directors, designing Edgar for Men In Black, and creating Jedi Master Oppo Rancis.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #12 has a special interview with James Arnold Taylor. While James has been making the rounds on various podcasts, Cory and Dan manage to cover some new topics and angles as they get James to talk about how the events in the The Clone Wars changed Anakin and Obi-Wan’s relationship in the overall story. Fans of Obi-Wan will not want to miss this episode. They also get around to James’ new book, JAT 365 and how that idea came about, before looping back into Star Wars and some intriguing discussion on familiar religious elements and motifs in the films.

Dave Filoni Talks ‘Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir’

Dave Filoni weighed in today on Facebook to help clarify the extent of the newly announced Dark Horse comic Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir and how it plays into Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

You may have seen the recent Clone Wars / Dark Horse Comics news, and I thought I would chime in and clarify things a bit. I am very excited about our collaboration with Dark Horse and this opportunity to tell an unfinished story developed for the TV series.

Before we get into the details about the Maul comic, I’d like to make clear that this storyline does not represent The Clone Wars series finale. I’ve seen some confusion about that online and want to set the record straight. There are additional Clone Wars episodes on the way and one arc in particular marks the series finale in my mind. We’ll have fun discussing that in the not too distant future. Continue Reading Dave Filoni Talks ‘Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir’…

jjYesterday Leland Chee Tweeted that the Story Group at Lucasfilm has full control on what is and isn’t canon in the Star Wars Universe.  That in and of itself has spawned a plethora of stories across the interwebs today.  But I’m going to take you farther down the rabbit hole, I’m going to show how what Leland Tweeted yesterday opens up a whole new can of worms.

Here’s this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Episode 11.19.2013 kicks off with some humorous additions for Star Wars Episode VII from the hosts. Remember, this is a show where they speak in character as if they’re real super heroes in their secret headquarters. It definitely adds a spin to the episodes, and sometimes some good laughs. Beyond Star Wars, they talk a little Batman and Superman, Peter Pan movies (believe it or not, there’s a bunch coming out), and Hunger Games.

Bombad Radio: Episodes 107 features an interview with voice actor Dave Fennoy who voice Pong Krell in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. While they don’t talk too much Star Wars in this interview, Dave does talk about his gig for The Walking Dead video game, plus some other projects. Be sure to stay tuned after the credits as Dave some cool promos.

Episode 108 features an interview with author Drew Karpyshyn. Seriously, when it comes to author interviews, Bombad Radio has some of the best out there. Their Drew Karpyshyn interview is no different. If you’re a fan of Drew’s books, be sure to check this one out. They cover all of Drew’s career from video games to books, as well as his upcoming novels and more.

Episode 110 features the one and only Sam Witwer. I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, but it’s definitely on my playlists. Besides, it’s Sam Witwer, what more do you need to know? Witwer interviews are always a must listen.
