Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Reactions to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them starts with some discussion of playing pretend as kids, some news, they go through the superhero movies of 2017, then share their thoughts on Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, pretty spoiler free, and their thoughts on who would play a young Dumbledore. Good episode, informative and fun.

Bombad Radio: A Bombad Happy Thanksgiving is hosted by James and Steve aka Fudge Ripple as they share Thanksgiving stories. The audio is a bit rough but it’s nostalgic for long time listeners of the show. I thought it was a fun one but if you’re a new listener, you might not get as much out of it.

Bombad Radio: Episode 259 covers The Chronicles of Riddick. This one is more of a review of the film, a critique, and a look at the overall franchise with a couple comparisons to Star Wars. It’s really light on the Star Wars ties, but if you’re a Riddick fan, you might want to check this one out. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 038 focuses on the Witches of Dathomir. They steer clear of Legends as they discuss how the witches were portrayed in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the novel Dark Disciple. They talk about their culture, compare them to the Sith and Jedi, and discuss their relationship with Palpatine. Pretty good episode.

Assembly of Geeks: Sorcerer’s Stone & Classic NES Madness covers the rush to buy the new NES console, they talk Big Bang Theory, the Han Solo movie, Doctor Strange, and some Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which leads to some Harry Potter discussion. Good episode.

Awards Chatter: Robert De Niro episode features a nice interview with the actor as they touch on a bunch of the movies that have stretched across his long career, his thoughts on comedies versus drama, how he ended up working with Scorsese and De Palma, some of the movies he’s had to pass on, and his thoughts on his latest movie The Comedian.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Beyond the Vote: Episode 12 is their last episode, recorded on the eve of the election as they touch on the latest developments brought up on Hilary and talk some general politics. Note I listened to this one prior to the election, so I’m not sure how this one would fare if you listened to it now.

Blast Points: Episode 47 covers the Donald Glover news, some Rogue One tidbits, Daisy Ridley’s comments, new Star Wars Rebels episode titles and some brief descriptions, then they head into their main topic – is E.T. a Jedi? They talk about his ability to levitate objects and to heal, him saying home when he sees a Yoda costume, and the E.T. senators in The Phantom Menace. They even bring in The Crystal Skull as a possibility to how it all happened. Crazy awesome episode. Definitely worth a listen.

Blast Points: Episode 48 starts with news, some Episode VIII costume news, Han Solo news and the cinematographer, and they talk about the Star Wars Galactic Atlas. Their main discussion in this episode is Meco, which leads to some pretty fun and entertaining stuff. They talk about who Meco was, why he made a Star Wars disco album, the other albums he did, and they play clips of a lot of the Star Wars Meco songs, as well as some of the newer Meco Star Wars stuff. Part educational and part silly fun, this is a good episode to check out. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Ausfans Radio: Episode 31 features a great interview with author John Jackson Miller covering his new trilogy Star Trek: Prey. They talk about Prey, the films, the tv series, his previous Star Trek stories, and what else he has coming out. Good audio quality and very impressive for an international interview as those don’t typically have the best audio quality. Good one to check out.

Beltway Banthas: Episode XIII is a fun one as they spotlight the Star Wars character Mas Amedda and discuss his role in the politics of Star Wars. I have to admit, I’d never really considered how important his character would have been, and it definitely seems a shame that Chuck Wendig didn’t play up on that a little better in Life Debt. They do talk about the character’s role in Life Debt which could be considered a little spoilery if you haven’t read that book yet. This episode features guest Mike DeRose. If you’re an Amedda fan, you’ll love this one, and if you’re not, you might just come away with a better understanding of the character.

Bombad Radio: In Memory of Eric Cone episode pays homage to their friend and Bombad Radio contributor Eric Cone who recently passed. They talk about his deep fandom, his love for Batman, Star Trek and the creators and artists, and they share memories of the good times they had. Nice episode which manages to stay upbeat while still paying tribute to a lost friend. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Last weekend I went to a small sci-fi convention in Columbia, MO called DoDeca Con. While there I had the opportunity to chat with author John Jackson Miller. I talked with John about his new trilogy Star Trek: Prey, his Halo short story in Halo: Fractures, his comic in Halo: Tales From Slipspace, and his short story in Planet of the Apes: Tales From the Forbidden Zone. Below you can either listen to the interview on YouTube, or download it via Podbean.

As mentioned in the interview, you can check out John’s official website at Farawaypress.com. John has autographed copies of his work available in his shop. Here are the pre-order links for all the books and comics mentioned in the interview:

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

After Dark Side: Episode 22 is the best After Dark Side episode I’ve listened to so far. They start out talking about YouTube, stuff they’re watching and new policies, then the discussion shifts to UFO’s and poltergeists. They get into dream examinations and spook stories which is pretty cool. Fun one to listen to.

Beltway Banthas: Episode XII features guests Lauren Milberger and Rachel Leishman (The FordCast) as they talk about actor Harrison Ford, his activism and his politics. It’s a very interesting episode covering aspects you don’t normally hear about on most Star Wars podcasts. Good one to check out.

Blast Points: Episode 39 covers Rogue One news, the product catalog, Star Wars Rebels clips, episode titles, and then they go into the George Lucas Super Live Adventure. They talk about the show, all the stuff it covered, the various music acts, etc. Now they don’t go into the history of the show too much as this one is mostly an overview of what was in the show as they watched the whole thing on YouTube. If you don’t know anything about it, Tested.com did a really nice write up on it a while back. That said, this episode gives you a better idea of what actually happened in the show without watching it yourself. Of course, it’ll also persuade you to check it out. Have fun!

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 027 is titles “The Star Wars Show (Pitches)” which really threw me off because I thought they were talking about pitches to the YouTube series that StarWars.com has been posting each week. This episode is actually about the rumored Star Wars live action television show and ideas they have for Star Wars TV shows. They pitch an Old Republic show, a Lando and Luke show and others.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 028 focuses on Star Wars Rebels as they talk about what’s working, what they’d like to see the show do, the big picture, and what they’re doing wrong.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 029 focuses on backstories. They talk about Chewbacca and the Darth Vader comic series, Mon Mothma, Obi-Wan and the hits and misses of Legends and the new canon. Fair warning, if you like Obi-Wan’s portrayal in Kenobi or Mon Mothma’s recent appearances, this episode may rile you up a bit. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
