Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Ausfans Radio: Bonus Episode Rogus Spoilerus Maximus is a nice, casual, laid back conversation about Rogue One between Alan and guest Davis Grayson (Fandom Podcast Network). It’s also a shorter episode at just 22 minutes.

Ausfans Radio: Bonus Rogue One Spoiler Review gives a summary of the film and Alan’s opinions. This one is also a short episode at just 12 minutes.

Beltway Banthas: Episode 19 begins with guest Joseph Tavano as they talk about how Retrozap started, white supremacists boycotting Rogue One, Bob Iger joining an advisory committee for Donald Trump, Adam Driver’s comments on Kylo Ren being a terrorist, and comparing the First Order to real world entities. Then they talk with guest Brittany Hunter about the factions of the Rebellion in Rogue One as they look at American history with the likes of John Adams and Samuel Adams. They get into the middle east, terrorist groups, Arab Spring, the Death Star and different types of rebels. It’s a very intriguing conversation. Great stuff. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. Lots of Rogue One discussion episodes, some better than others.

Assembly of Geeks: Rogue One Reviews starts with some discussion on Gotham City Sirens and a Deadshot movie, then they move into their reviews of Rogue One with guest Dan Zehr (Coffee With Kenobi). While there’s no love for Bor Gullet or Saw, they do discuss the things they liked as well as the things they didn’t like, what they wanted, the CGI, possible plot holes and ranking it.

Bantha Fodder: Episode 15 is a Christmas special as they do their own version of “Twas A Night Before Christmas” but Rogue One themed. Worth a listen.

Bombad Radio: Episode 264 features James, Jeremiah, Jason and author Adam Bray as they talk Rogue One including expectations, the things they liked, disliked and listener feedback. Good episode. Note there’s more listener reviews at the end of the episode so when the main discussion ends and you hear someone else speaking, that’s what’s going on. It threw me off guard at first as I though maybe a different podcast had started playing, but it’s just a listener review. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blabba the Hutt: Episode 30 starts pre-Rogue One and without Kate as they talk in the pub before the movie, then it cuts to Jamie in the car on the ride home as he provides his reactions after having seen it twice. Spoiler free.

Blast Points: Episode 53 is their pre-Rogue One episode as they talk Beezer Fortuna, Wheezer, 8 foot tall Snoke puppet, the Rogue One red carpet premiere, Crystal Skull, Rogue One plans, and they ponder how intelligent the wampa on Hoth was. Nice episode with no spoilers.

Blast Points: Episode 54 kicks off with the jokes as they begin their Rogue One episode and the Star Wars love. They touch on the idea of Rogue One being the core of a new trilogy bookended by Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, they talk about how the film reflects the aesthetic shifts as it goes from a ROTS feel to ANH feel by the end of the film, they cover the music, a lot of scene-by-scene discussion, the locations, the characters, Vader becoming Dracula and much more. Lots of humor and lots of fun make this the best Rogue One discussion I’ve listened to so far. I making this one my pick of the week. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. And remember, we’re always looking for more Star Wars podcasts to check out so feel free to send us a link to one you want reviewed.

Awards Chatter: Chris Pine episode is a superb interview with the actor whose roles range from a Disney prince to Kirk in Star Trek. Chris talks about the long road that led to acting, the parts he’s gone through, the roles he looks for, and why went with some of the roles he’s done. They also focus on his latest movie, Hell or Highwater and what that was like. Great episode.

Blast Points: Episode 50 is all about The Phantom Menace. No news, to pre-show warm up, just straight to all the goodness of TPM. They recall opening night, they go through most of the key scenes of the movie, and share lots of love. Truly a great episode and a shining example of what they do best. Blast Points enjoys Star Wars for all its ridiculousness and awesome moments, loving them equally and sharing the fun. This one earns my pick of the week.

Blast Points: Episode 51 begins with some discussion of Kathleen Kennedy’s statements on what will come after Episode IX, the Boba Fett teaser trailer that never happened, Amelia Clarke joining the Han Solo cast, the Japanese Rogue One trailer, digital Wedge, and the opening title theme. Then they get into their main topic – Catalyst. They talk about James Luceno’s novel and provide some great observations like the nanny droid being a nod to another popular nanny, the ties to Star Wars: The Clone Wars, was the Death Star 2 the Separatist version, Poggle the Lesser, and more. Great episode that doesn’t really spoil too much. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

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…
