Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 198 is hosted by Jeremiah and James as they cover topics like Rogue One and an X-Wing being launched into space. Then they break to Jason and a Star Wars Celebration Anaheim recap he did while at Anaheim with some friends. It’s a little noisy, and sometimes a lot noisy. It also goes on for some length as they ambitiously try to cover everything. Then they switch back to James and Jeremiah for more Star Wars discussion before Jeremiah switches over and talks with Jason about the Seattle Star Wars costume exhibit. Lastly they got back to James and Jeremiah for a little speculation on when we might see a full trailer for The Force Awakens. The episode covers a lot, but it might not be to everyone’s liking.

Fly Casual: Episode 40 is their Memorial Day episode featuring some extra friends as they all gather together in person for the episode. It leads to some extra goofing around, lots of jovialness, and even some Star Wars. This is their news and toy report episode so they do touch on some Star Wars news and they have a short collecting segment that’s actually pretty cool.

Full of Sith: Episode CXVII features Bryan, Mike and special guest Dunc (Club Jade) as they talk The Force Awakens, Rogue One, Rebels, Zahn pronunciations, a rumor about a Shadows of the Empire sequel, and the reveal of Serkis’ character name Snoke. There’s a little bit of everything in this episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

nemesis-gamesNemesis Games by James S.A. Corey is out today.

The fifth novel in James S.A. Corey’s New York Times bestselling Expanse series–now being produced for television by the Syfy Channel!

A thousand worlds have opened, and the greatest land rush in human history has begun. As wave after wave of colonists leave, the power structures of the old solar system begin to buckle.

Ships are disappearing without a trace. Private armies are being secretly formed. The sole remaining protomolecule sample is stolen. Terrorist attacks previously considered impossible bring the inner planets to their knees. The sins of the past are returning to exact a terrible price.

And as a new human order is struggling to be born in blood and fire, James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante must struggle to survive and get back to the only home they have left.

Cibola Burn is the fourth book in James S.A. Corey’s The Expanse series, and like the others, it’s a great character adventure in tome sized format (a respectable 581 pages). With a new planet beyond the ring being colonized, humanity finds itself in conflict over who has the right to this strange alien world. But what no one bothers to ask is whether the aliens ever truly left. It’s up to Holden and his crew to sort things out and, ultimately, try to save as many lives as possible as everything goes to hell. Click here to read our full review.

New Release: ‘Cibola Burn’ by James S.A. Corey

Cibola BurnCibola Burn by James S.A. Corey is out today. This marks the fourth book in The Expanse series.

The gates have opened the way to a thousand new worlds and the rush to colonize has begun. Settlers looking for a new life stream out from humanity’s home planets. Ilus, the first human colony on this vast new frontier, is being born in blood and fire.

Independent settlers stand against the overwhelming power of a corporate colony ship with only their determination, courage, and the skills learned in the long wars of home. Innocent scientists are slaughtered as they try to survey a new and alien world. The struggle on Ilus threatens to spread all the way back to Earth.

James Holden and the crew of his one small ship are sent to make peace in the midst of war and sense in the midst of chaos. But the more he looks at it, the more Holden thinks the mission was meant to fail.

And the whispers of a dead man remind him that the great galactic civilization that once stood on this land is gone. And that something killed it.

For more information, ordering links and excerpts, check out the official product page. If you’re in the Santa Monica, CA area, the authors will be there for a book signing at Barnes & Noble at 7:00 PM.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. I did some catching up, so there are quite a few this week.

Bombad Radio: Episode 129 has an interview with Star Wars: The Old Republic writer Charles Boyd who talks about what the game designers are working on next giving gamers an idea of what to expect in the way of new content, and what isn’t likely. He also mentions the kind of studies they’ve done to studying player’s behaviors, which was pretty interesting. Very informative episode.

Episode 130 is a Star Wars free-for-all as multiple guests all weigh in on a variety of Star Wars topics. They talk about Mark Hamill and Liam Neeson being in The Clone Wars Season 6, Episode VII news and rumors, and lots more.

Coffee with Kenobi: Rebels Reactions #3 features guest Craig Dickinson as he and the hosts discuss Star Wars Rebels. As can be expected, there’s some insightful commentary on the characters and themes of the show as they cover Kanan, Ezra and Zeb (note this was prior to the reveals of Hera and Sabine). I rather liked the observation regarding the biblical sounding names and it’ll be interesting if the show goes any further into that theme. Nice discussion and worth a listen. Looking forward to hearing them discuss the new female characters as I’m very intrigued by Sabine.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode #5 starts out with guest Lisa Granshaw (The Daily Dot) and a Star Wars Rebels discussion which also touches on the controversial male orientation of Disney and Hasbro’s marketing for the show. Afterwards special guest Clare Grant joins them to talk Team Unicorn and lots of other fun Star Wars and geeky topics. Great show, so make sure this one hits your playlist.
