Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 89 includes coverage of Kevin Doyle’s walk from Rancho Obi-Wan to SDCC, con and event reports, library cons, troop reports, backpack events, and more. If you want to know what the 501st does and what they’ve been up to, this is the podcast to listen to.

Comics With Kenobi: Episode #8 reviews Shattered Empire #2, Darth Vader #10, Star Wars #10 and Lando #4 and #5. Plus they have an interview with the writer for the Lando series, Charles Soule. Now after the end credits they do a live reading of Lando #5. At first I thought they meant they were going to re-enact the comic and read it outloud, but that isn’t the case. Instead it’s them giving their reactions, kind of like a film commentary track, as they read the comic for the first time. It’s an interesting idea, but it needs some more dialog if it’s going to work as there was a like of dead space as they were reading.

Fly Casual: Episode 61 features lots of comic reviews as they cover Darth Vader, Star Wars, Kanan, Lando and Shattered Empire. They keep it entertaining as always. Afterwards they did a little into books as they talk about Lost Stars. Then they get into rumors. Fair warning, they cover The Force Awakens rumors and character deaths, so listen at your own risk when they get to that part of the episode.

Full of Sith: The Trailer Council is so far the best discussion I’ve heard covering The Force Awakens trailer. Part of this is because Bobby Roberts put together an all star panel: Tricia (FANgirl Blog), Bethany (Star Wars Report), Nancy (Tosche-Station), Dunc (Club Jade), Justin (The ForceCast), Mark (Jedi News) and Dan (Coffee With Kenobi). Together they breakdown both the poster and the trailer for an excellent discussion with great audio quality. This one not only sets the bar, it raises it. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
