Blast Points Podcast: Episode 185 they go over the D23 Star Wars news. This includes a breakdown of The Mandalorian trailer, the Obi-Wan news and their thoughts on what the show could be about, The Rise of Skywalker poster, the description of TROS footage, and then they come back to do a full breakdown of the actual footage and they share their Rey theories. Now I listened to a lot of podcasts that went over the D23 news, so everyone is going to have their own personal preference on their favorite podcasters and who they most want to hear talk about it, but in my opinion Blast Points had the most fun with it. Great episode.

It’s True. All of It.: Episode 1 kicks off a new Star Wars podcast hosted by Dale and Michael. I’ve listened to the first couple episodes and each features a discussion of a couple chapters from the Star Wars novel Master & Apprentice followed with some other themed Star Wars discussions. So far the episodes are 40 minutes are less which is a really nice runtime. It gives them enough time to dive into the subjects, but it keeps things from getting dragged out. The book discussion segments are good, too, but they recap what happens in the book, so there are spoilers. In this first episode they go over chapters 1 through 4, then they talk about the Jedi Council and The Phantom Menace. Audio and production quality is great, and the hosts have really good chemistry which leads to good discussions. Worth checking out.
