Pirate’s Price by Lou Anders is a collection of stories all featuring Hondo Ohnaka. The stories take place over multiple time periods ranging from the time of the Empire to the events after The Last Jedi. While this is a good book, it’s an even better audiobook as it’s narrated by the voice of Hondo Ohnaka himself, Jim Cummings. Click here to read our full review.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 194 includes several guests. The first guest is Star Wars autograph collector Frank D. Rich who talks about collecting autographs and Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, giving some tips for first timers and some discussion of pricing. Then they play a clip of a James Arnold Taylor interview from Celebration VI where James talked about faith and Star Wars before seguing to their second guest, Greg, who is behind the Celebration of Worship events. Then they cover some news and jump to their third guest, voice actor Stephen Stanton. They talk about Life Itself, Star Wars Celebration, Starlight Foundation, the 501st Bash, Tarkin, Peter Cushing and Doctor Who. But that’s not all as they have one more guest in this episode, Noah Tarnow, who talks about Big Quiz Thing, what type of questions they’ll be doing at Celebration, and they break into some general fan discussion on Marvel, DC, comics, films and the Star Wars movies. It’s kind of a lengthy discussion, and puts this episode at a few minutes shy of two hours, so be prepared for a long one. Still, they have some good guests and some good discussions.

Episode 196 begins with some TFA trailer discussion then breaks to their interview with voice actor Bob Bergen, most recognizably known for voicing Porky Pig since Mel Blanc’s passing. While Bob is not much of a storyteller, and he doesn’t share his voices, he does give out a lot of advice and insight for voice actors looking to break into the business. He also shares how he got the role of Porky Pig, how he Mel Blanc as a kid, and some of the other work he’s done.

Episode 197 has an interview with Ultimate Star Wars author Adam Bray who talks about the project, working with canon and legends, how much of Star Wars Rebels he knew about when working on the book, and his contributions. Then they interview the voice actors for the Star Wars audiobooks: January Lavoy, Marc Thompson and Jonathan Davies. They talk about working on Star Wars books, the challenges of doing audiobooks, as well as the perks. With four interviewees in this episode, it’s jam packed with Star Wars goodness and all of the interviews are top notch. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:OMG! Star Wars Trailer” surprisingly doesn’t cover the trailer as much as the title of the episode would lead you to believe. They do however touch on the trailer and some of the controversies people are making a fuss over. Aside from the trailer, they also talk about the Jurassic World trailer, some comments Christian Bale made about playing Batman again, and some anniversaries for Star Trek and the Ewok movies. If you’re burnt out on TFA trailer discussions, this one is still worth checking out as Scott, Tricia and guest Jeff Roney talk a lot more about stuff outside the content of the trailer than say a scene-by-scene dissection. For fans of Assembly of Geeks, Tricia announced that she’ll be leaving the show soon do to time constraints. As a fan myself, it will be sad to see her go. Tricia has been a great part of the show and her, Scott and Jeff make a great trio.

Bombad Radio: Episode 174 features an interview with Star Wars composer Jesse Harlin who worked on Republic Commando, The Force Unleashed, Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars Galaxies, The Old Republic and Star Wars 1313. He talks about composing, editing and arranging video game music, some of instruments he’s worked with, and even discusses some of the stuff he did for the cancelled Star Wars 1313 game. Sadly that music won’t be coming out, but they were able to share a snippet. Jesse teased that the game would have included Hutt gangster rap. For fans of Star Wars games or RebelForce Radio’s Star Wars Oxygen series, this is an episode worth listening to.

Episode 177 starts out with a live recording of Jeremiah and his wife watching The Force Awakens trailer and giving their initial thoughts, which I have to admit I haven’t heard anyone else do. But the real fun kicks in with Jeremiah’s interview with voice actor Corey Burton who talks about getting into the business, the voices and shows he’s done, coming up with the voices for Ziro the Hutt and Cad Bane, as well as his work for Disney and DC Comics.
