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.

Comic Book Noob: Vulture continuing the Spider-Man theme, in this episode they discuss another Spider-Man villain, Vulture, who is played by Michael Keaton in the upcoming film. They talk about the character’s comic book origins, the different versions of the character, his primary characteristics and what makes him such a great villain. Good episode.

DorkLair: Episode #1 kicks off yet another new podcast on the RetroZap network. This one is hosted by Bill and Bryan and focuses on Star Wars S.H Figuarts figures. In this episode they talk about how they got into collecting the Figuarts line, they touch on Revoltec, some of the tricks to getting the figures, and then they do a really thorough review on the Luke Skywalker A New Hope figure. If you’re interested in the line, this might be a good way to find out if it’s worth jumping in on, and for collectors who are already hooked, this is definitely the only podcast I know of dedicated to the Star Wars S.H. Figuarts line. Looking forward to future episodes and certainly any tips or tricks for the figures.

Full of Sith: Episode CCXXII discusses the Han Solo news. Having listened to a bunch of podcasts cover this topic, I really liked Full of Sith’s analysis of the events and their take on the news as it helped put things in perspective for me. They also talk about Ron Howard taking over, and there’s some general Han Solo discussion at the end. Good episode.

They talk with Hannah Kent and Jesse Thaxton about the Wonder Woman fashion collection from Her Universe and Hot Topic and what it was like designing those items. Then they talk with Camille Falciola about the Wonder Woman fashion collection and the items she designed. They wrap up with the history of plaid and tie-off another great episode.

Later on, Kyle Newman joins them as he chimes in on Lord and Miller, Ron Howard and everything that went down. Good episode. J.C. had some nice insight on the Scum and Villainy cantina, plus I liked his comments on the Han Solo news.
