Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 173 features special guest David Collins as they talk about his podcast Star Wars Oxygen, whether they’ll cover video game music, Sam Witwer’s lyrics to The Force Unleashed music, how Republic Commando was slightly inspired by Halo, the limitations of memory on video game music, doing the sound work for the amazing Star Wars: The Old Republic trailers, Darth Malgus being voiced by Julian Glover’s son (Julian Glover being General Veers from The Empire Strikes Back) and much more. Whether it’s mixing sound for video games or recounting the old days when Sam Witwer would just hang out, Dave covers a lot of territory and fun stories. Awesome episode.

Full of Sith: Episode LXXXVIII features the hosts of Fangirls Going Rogue Teresa Delgado and Tricia Barr as they join Mike, Bryan and Bobby for some really interesting conversations. Chief among them is their discussion of Star Wars Rebels, it’s placement on DisneyXD, ratings, marketing it as a boy’s show when there’s a significant female audience, they paywall, and whether it can get a season 3 if it stays on DisneyXD. They they have a character discussion on Darth Bane, the creator of the rule of two, as Teresa educates everyone on his background, what he did to make him so memorable, and the books by Drew Karpyshyn. Really nice episode and definitely one to check out.

Episode XC features guest Pablo Hidalgo as they talk about the dark times, how Pablo was introduced to Star Wars, sharing memories of their fandom, and much more. Very cool interview and well worth listening to. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Happy Birthday, Alan Dean Foster

alan-dean-fosterToday we wish a happy birthday to the first Star Wars author, Alan Dean Foster. Star Wars: From the Adventures of Luke Skywalker (aka the Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope novelization) may not bear his name, as it was ghost written and still says by George Lucas, but he still gets the credit. And as if being first wasn’t good enough, he was also second with Splinter of the Mind’s Eye, which to this day is still one of the weirdest Star Wars novels out there with Luke’s creepy love interest in Leia, a swamp planet intended as a cheap way to make a sequel movie, and a giant worm that tries to eat everyone. If there’s one book truly worthy of being placed under the Legends banner, it would be that one.
