Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review with lots of Star Wars Celebration Europe episodes.

Assembly of Geeks: Getting Ready for Ghostbusters & Comic-Con starts with a Ghostbusters discussion, then they talk about the He-Man cross-over comic with Thundercats, the black and white version of Mad Max: Fury Road, and then they head into the panels of San Diego Comic Con. Fun episode.

Blast Points: Episode 29 starts with a little pre-Celebration discussion of the panels, the livestream, and K2-SO. Then they get into their main topic – vintage Star Wars toy commercials. Now this is a thing I haven’t heard very many podcasts tackle, and I’ve certainly never heard anyone cover it in depth. They dive in, play the audio from the old commercials, and provide some fun feedback on these little gems.

Blast Points: Episode 30 covers SWCE as they highlight the panels. They talk about Mark Hamill, John Knoll, Rogue One, Jiang’s spoiler, stripper Krennic, Lucas’ set visit, the sizzle reel, space monkey, Star Wars Rebels and more. Great episode as always. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
