Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

The 602 Club: Episode 49 is A New Hope discussion featuring guests Bethany and Riley Blanton from Star Wars Report. It’s a great conversation on some broad topics and themes, but they dive deep into them. If you love Star Wars, this one will appeal to you, so that covers pretty much everyone. Great audio quality, great guests, great episode.

The 602 Club: Episode 47 focuses on Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath, and it does get into spoilers, though I don’t think it’s anything that would ruin the book. They provide their opinions on the book, pick it apart, but also explore all the possibilities and intriguing aspects. It’s a good episode to check out if you’ve read the book.

Bombad Radio: Episode 211 reaches back into the things that make this podcast great – Star Wars author interviews. I’m a sucker for interviews, and I love hearing from the authors of Star Wars. This one is extra special as I’ve never heard anyone interview John Whitman. If you’re not familiar with the name, he wrote the Star Wars series Galaxy of Fear which was basically the equivalent of Goosebumps. They cover that, but also his work on the audio adaptations for Dark Horse’s early Star Wars comics and the Return of the Jedi radio dramatization. He talks about how those projects came about, working with Lucasfilm on getting sound effects, and even his expertise in the martial art of Krav Maga. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Book News

  • StarWars.com has a bunch of book info on upcoming titles you can check out here including new cover art and summaries. While the Art of and the Visual Guide are new news, Before the Awakening by Greg Rucka is. I really enjoyed his Han Solo novel Smuggler’s Run, so I’ll definitely be getting this one.

A companion piece to the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens character novels, Star Wars: Before the Awakening is an anthology book that focuses on the lives of Rey, Finn, and Poe before the events of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

  • Nerdist has two animated videos, one of Jason Fry’s The Weapon of a Jedi and one of Greg Rucka’s Smuggler’s Run. They’re pretty cool looking, but might contain spoilers if you haven’t read the books yet.
  • Aside from Star Wars, pre-orders are up for the Warcraft movie prequel novel by Christie Golden.
