Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. Some of the summaries might be a little plain as I’m leaving out any Solo spoilers for the time being.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 125 is their Solo discussion episode as they go over their initial thoughts then dive in and walk through the movie. Interesting thought about connecting L3 to Star Wars: Adventures in Colors and Shapes. Worth noting, there were some things they had issues with, which seems to be a common theme with the Solo podcast discussions.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 169 they share their thoughts on Solo, first 3 minutes is spoiler free, then they go into spoilers for the rest of the show. They go through the entire movie and provide a fun breakdown and discussion. Lot of positivity and fun in this one.

Card Trader Illuminerdy: Spoilers: Post – Solo Debrief features Tom, Mikey, Rhett, Earl and Michael as they record in the theater (after everyone left and as they await the next showing). They joke around a bit then get to Solo as they talk about the timeline, general thoughts, species, what they did and didn’t like, the characters, droid/human relations, and some funny tangents. It’s not a thorough discussion, and it’s not entirely positive as Rhett didn’t like it, but they hit on various things and they’re funny, so you might want to check it out. Dave makes a special appearance in this episode, though he’s not able to weigh in as he hadn’t seen it yet.

Full of Sith: Episode CCLXX is their Solo spoiler discussion featuring Bryan, Holly, Bobby. They share their general impressions, they talk about the treatment of women, Marvelization, Val, L3, Enfys Nest, and the big spoiler surprise.
