Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: January 5 Minicast features a great conversation with Verona Blue who talks about being a 501st member and her role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Verona is a 16 year veteran of the legion, one of the original members of Canadian Garrison, and has a great story to tell about working TFA. She covers her stint at theater school in England, moving to LA to get into movies, some of the acting she’s done, and what her experience doing voice over work for TFA was like considering she’s now the voice of the first female stormtrooper (aside from Phasma). Great audio and a great guest make this a great episode. Be sure to give it a listen.

501stCast: Know A Legion Episode 1 Minicast features a fun conversation with the commander of the Outer Rim Garrison. Terry talks about how his unit was formed, events they’ve done, memorable moments, and upcoming events. Again, great audio quality, and an interesting interview. Worth a listen.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 000 covers their favorite small moments from Star Wars, what moments in Star Wars: The Clone Wars that sold them on the show, what moments sold them on Star Wars Rebels, and they set the expectations for their podcast. A light but fun discussion and a short episode at just 25 minutes. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
