Blast Points: Episode 131 covers Episode IX news and rumors, Mark Hamill’s beard, Kylo’s beard rumor, and then they get to their main discussion which focuses on the relationship and connections between Steven Spielberg and George Lucas. They talk about their friendship, their collaborations, how they met, how George screen the first Star Wars film for Spielberg, their connections to Kathleen Kennedy, Lawrence Kasdan and J.J.

Bright Tree Radio: Episode 33 they go over the standalone movie rumors, then they discuss the seven deadly sins and see who in Star Wars falls into each one. Kind of an interesting discussion as I’ve never heard anyone do this before. They go through each of the seven sins, and see which characters are guilty of them. From bounty hunters and greed, to Krennic and envy. Good stuff. They wrap up with a mini segment on which Star Wars film they would get rid of.

Blast Points: Episode 129 Jason and Gabe talk about their trip to Ace Comic Con and play the audio from their two panels. First up, Weird Star Wars which includes the Richard Pryor special, The Holiday Special, Turkish Star Wars, Japanese George Lucas commercials, The George Lucas Super Live Adventure, and more. The second panel has the audience doing trivia from the Rusty Miller quiz book, with a commtech chip bonus round. Not too bad of an episode to listen to, but I bet it would have been really fun to be there.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. Some of the summaries might be a little plain as I’m leaving out any Solo spoilers for the time being.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 125 is their Solo discussion episode as they go over their initial thoughts then dive in and walk through the movie. Interesting thought about connecting L3 to Star Wars: Adventures in Colors and Shapes. Worth noting, there were some things they had issues with, which seems to be a common theme with the Solo podcast discussions.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 124 follows along with Jason and Gabe at The Detroit Institute of Arts as they visit the Star Wars and the Power of Costume exhibit. They have some audio of some of the speakers at the exhibit opening talking about the event and the props, then they have audio as Jason and Gabe walk around and enjoy all the sights to be had. A bit different than usual since this one is live from the scene, but the audio quality is still pretty good. A fun listen.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 168 starts with some hype for Solo as the days draw nearer, then they dive into the Star Wars Resistance announcement and spotlight one of the voice actors, Bobby Moynihan. Cool episode as I never realized just how big a Star Wars fan Bobby Moynihan was. Nice way to start getting pumped for Star Wars Resistance.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Awards Chatter: Emilia Clarke – ‘Game of Thrones’ kicks off with Scott talking with The Hollywood Reporter executive editor Stephen Galloway about publicists. The interview with Emilia Clarke kicks in at 18 minutes. Emilia talks a little about her parents and childhood, then goes over how she got into acting, getting into theater, and making ends meet until she got the offer for Game of Thrones. She talks about the first audition for the show, getting the part, reading the books, the wig and dyeing her hair, having to do the nudity, working on the show, and she touches on some of her other projects, including Solo (which, worth noting, she signed up for three movies just like Alden). Great interview. Emilia sounding like a very down to earth person. Definitely worth a listen. Most of the interview does focus on Game of Thrones, though, so don’t expect much Star Wars.
