Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.
Assembly of Geeks: “Star Wars Rebels and Rumors” has a lot of summer movie discussion as they talk about the best and worst summer movies this year. They also get into Avengers 2 and Ms. Marvel news and rumors. Then they talk with Pete Morrison (Rebels Report) to talk Star Wars Rebels. There’s a brief audio sample of their interview with A New Dawn author John Jackson Miller, and a segment with Jeremiah (Bombad Radio) on summer movie thoughts. If you like movies, this is a good episode to check out, though I still cringe every time Scott talks about Godzilla…some of us actually liked that movie ;)
Bonus Points with John Jackson Miller is a special mini episode featuring Scott’s interview with A New Dawn author John Jackson Miller. John talks about being filled in on season one, working with the executive producers, Dave Filoni, what he wanted to show in the book, and more. This is a spoiler free interview so feel free to give it a listen whether you’ve read the book or not.
Full of Sith: Episode LXXXI is a semi-live podcast from Salt Lake Comic Con as Bryan podcasts from there with an audience, and Mike and Bobby skype in. The audio is a little rough but there’s some good discussion and fan questions. Afterwards, Mike and Bobby wrap things up and, as a special treat, Ania joins them for a fun Star War conversation. She definitely steals the show on this one. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

The Terra Incognita series is without a doubt the best book series I’ve ever read. What Kevin J. Anderson pulls off in these three books is nothing short of breathtaking. The range of emotion and characters, the extent of themes and conflicts, it’s a wonderful combination of storytelling. In the third and final book in the series, The Key to Creation wraps everything up and ends the series on a high note. Click here to read our full review.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.
Bombad Radio: Episode 163 is their interview with Nobility producer E.J. De La Pena and Assassin’s Creed voice actor Cas Anvar. E.J. talks about his Star Trek project Nobility, which I’m not familiar with, so it was kind of interesting. The Cas Anvar interview, however, was a lot more interesting. It’s a very casual interview covering voice acting, cons, fans and gaming. Worth checking out.
Episode 164 features an interview with Star Wars puppeteer Tim Rose who talks muppets, The Dark Crystal, The Return to Oz, Doctor Who, Star Wars, animatronics (and how that term began), practical effects, CGI, Jim Hensen, George Lucas, Howard the Duck, and more. Great interview with a nice discussion of the various projects Tim has worked on.
Coffee with Kenobi: A Cup of Clone Wars “The Lost One” episode features guest Bryan Young as they cover the Sifo Dyas arc and go into some deep Star Wars topics for some juicy discussion. Excellent episode and I highly recommend checking it out.
