Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 79 kicks off with some rather intriguing and timely audio clips on Lord and Miller. They talk about the Han Solo news and breakdown the evolution of the project, going through the stages, and playing some audio clips as they go. They also touch on Ron Howard taking over and their thoughts on the whole thing. But that’s not it for this episode as they then transition to Genndy Tartakovsky, how he was let go when future projects were talked about, and they dive into his version of the Clone Wars and some of the cool moments from the show. They wrap things up with an interview with Star Wars author Jared Krosoczka who took over the Jedi Academy series. Great episode.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 124 jokes around with sponsorships, drinking Coronas, vikings, copper pots, and then they get to the news. They discuss the Han Solo directors getting fired, diving into listener emails, pizza, and some need’em got’em. Great episode with lots of fun packed in.

Comic Book Noob: Venom discusses the part time villain, part time ally of Spider-Man. They talk about the symbiote, its origin, how it works, its hosts, how Venom has wound up helping Spider-Man from time to time, and how the Tom Hardy Venom movie might tie into all of this. Good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
