Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. It’s a shorter one as I’m catching up from my vacation last week, but we’ll be back in the swing of things next week.

80’s Reboot Overdrive Podcast: James Kahn Interview is a good one to listen to. James has been making the rounds lately with podcast interviews, and this one, while covering some familiar ground, also breaks into some new territory. It’s a good interview with good hosts, excellent sound quality and a lot of Goonies focus.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode 20 includes news highlights, Star Wars Weekends coverage with audio clips and interviews with Steve Blum and Daniel Logan, a special discussion on their ten favorite Star Wars musical moments, and a character discussion on Barriss Offee. Great episode.

Full of Sith: Episode CXIX is hosted by Mike and Bryan with special guest Holly Frey as they talk about legendary actor Christopher Lee who recently passed away. They cover a little bit of everything, from his role in Star Wars, to Lord of the Rings and his Hammer Films work. Entertaining as always, this is a good one to check out.

RebelForce Radio: Episode 6.19.2015 has Star Wars Weekends coverage with Jimmy Mac and Steve Glosson as they talk with James Arnold Taylor, Ashley Eckstein, Taylor Gray and Ray Park, do the RebelForce Radio listener meetup, recount their Star Tours and Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular experiences and more. Definitely a fun episode to listen to.

Episode 6.12.2015 they cover some Star Wars book release dates, Jimmy discusses why he stopped reading Heir to the Jedi, they play Steve Glosson’s great Star Wars parody song of Nickleback’s “Rockstar”, they cover the upcoming mobile game Star Wars Uprising, the Han Solo bombshell from Marvel, and movie rumors. Lots of stuff packed into this one.

Skywalking Through Neverland: Episode 82 features guest Kevin Reitzel for Star Wars Weekends #3 coverage then shifts to Christopher Lee highlights, history and audio clips. As a big fan of Christopher Lee, I really enjoyed this episode. From his early career to his upcoming, unreleased work, they cover it all. Highly recommend it, and it goes great with the Full of Sith Christopher Lee episode, so be sure to double up.
