Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 101 starts out with a little discussion of Thanksgiving, then they delve into the TV spots for The Last Jedi, all fourteen of them. They also touch on the international TV spots, the new magazine covers and articles, and the Disney park updates. Then it’s the main discussion – Ric Ollie. They talk about the other movies Ralph Brown (the actor who played Ric) has been in, they go over every line of dialog by Ric Ollie from The Phantom Menace, and they wrap up with listener feedback. I have to admit, I really like the character focused episodes as they are a lot of fun.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 56 minutes, Rating: Fun

Brews and Blasters: Episode 145 kicks off with their recap of Rhode Island Comic Con. They talk about meeting Dolph Lundgren, the Blood Sport guy, Steve Blum, Newbacca, Andy Serkis, and Evil Lyn. Afterwards they talk news and get into some speculation on the Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy. Fun episode.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 99 starts with the Rian Johnson trilogy news, the live action TV show news, and they discuss what could be next for animated shows. Their main topic is the old Star Wars fan film Hardware Wars which was one of the most profitable films ever made at that time. They talk about how it came about, who was in it, how it was released, how it ties into Poggle the Lesser, and they watch it and provide a commentary.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 56 minutes, Rating: Fun

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 100 celebrates their 100th episode by watching all six Star Wars movies at once via the overlay video which, if you haven’t checked it out, is pretty bizarre and awesome. They sort of do a commentary for it, while also tackling listener emails and voice mails. At over 2 hours, it’s a lot of fun in one episode.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 2 hours 26 minutes, Rating: Fun

Bombad Radio: Episode 290 features an interview with author and game writer Jeff Grubb. Jeremiah talks with Jeff about the differences in writing for different worlds and franchises, short stories vs novels vs comics, working with artists, his Forgotten Realms comics, writing for video games and the team effort, Guild Wars, PVP, PVE, text and socializing, the various aspects of gaming, the different types of writers in games now, planing out voices, amount of material you’re given to work with, and roleplaying books. Nice interview and a very interesting conversation that includes a lot of game designing stories.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

8 For VIII: Episode VIII covers Kylo and redemption, Rey falling to the dark side, directions Rian Johnson can go and other speculation.

Podcast Network: Star Wars CommonwealthRuntime: 14 minutes, Rating: Good

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 95 is an older episode, but I’ve finally finished From A Certain Point of View so I came back to it. They start out with news (The Last Jedi and trailer observations), then they go through every story in From A Certain Point of View with a summary and a rating. It’s not super spoilery, but it’s a little spoilery so I’d recommend checking it out after you’ve read the book. The discussion will probably resonate with you more if you read the book first. Great episode.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 1 hour 7 minutes, Rating: Great

DorkLair: Episode #13 starts with a little bit of discussion about the Praetorian guards and what their role in The Last Jedi might be. Then they review the S.H. Figuarts figure pack of the First Order Executioner, Resistance BB droid 2BB-2 and the Praetorian Guard. They cover the pros and cons of each, and this one in particular would be worth checking out before buying the figures as there are some issues with them.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 96 starts with the Solo news, The Last Jedi news, a little Star Wars Rebels with a hot take on “Heroes of Mandalore” being the dullest season premier of Star Wars Rebels yet, which I can’t disagree with. Then they hit their main topic which is Mandalore. From the first mentions of Mandalorians, to George Lucas and Dave Filoni recreating them for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, to their appearances in Star Wars Rebels. They trace the progression of the Mandalorians and Mandalore, focusing on canon rather than legends.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 57 minutes, Rating: Good

Bombad Radio: Episode 291 starts with an interview with Star Wars author Ian Doescher. Kaela talks with Ian about Shakespeare, Star Wars, and his other work. It’s a nice little interview. At 25 minutes in, the interview ends and Jeremiah joins Kaela as they talk Star Wars news, Marvel news, and more which rounds the episode out.

Podcast Network: Bombad RadioRuntime: 58 minutes, Rating: Good

Brews and Blasters: Episode 140 is their shot-by-shot breakdown of The Last Jedi trailer. Fun discussion as always. I really liked the idea of Kylo boarding Leia’s ship for a face-to-face confrontation. Definitely worth checking out.

501stCast: Episode 105 is hosted by Nicky, Joe and Marcus as they highlight a documentary on the UK Garrison, watch The Last Jedi trailer together and share their initial reactions, cover the new 501st costumes, and then head into troop reports. There’s even a dedicated segment for the Alaskan Garrison. Plus there’s a little bonus audio drama with Joe, Alan Flyng and Derek Lyons called “Enterprising Executor.” If you’d like to get an idea of what the 501st Legion does, this is a great podcast to check out as their troop reports cover all the charity events they participate in and help raise money for. There’s usually some pretty touching stories.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 1 hour 2 minutes, Rating: Good

BlastCast: Thoughts on the MNF The Last Jedi Trailer includes highlights and some interesting thoughts on the trailer, porgs, kyber foxes and the Kylo/Leia moment.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 139 features Joe and Chris as they start off with Bob’s Burgers. Then they talk about getting tickets for The Last Jedi, watching the trailer, and the theater they plan on seeing it at. They also talk about Batista and Blade Runner 2049 (spoiler free, high recommendations from both), Topps cards, they dive more into The Last Jedi trailer with their thoughts on it, but not a shot-by-shot breakdown as they might save that for later. Fun episode as always.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. There’s some pre and post-trailer release episodes in here.

Blast Points: Episode 94 dives into The Last Jedi trailer. Gabe and Jason keep it fun as always. From the AT-AT farm and Kylo’s space band-aid, to Phasma’s toothpick and the Rey vs Snoke showdown. They speculate on whether the Kylo/Rey scene is a fake out, the lack of Hux, and more. If you’re hunting down trailer discussions, this one is definitely worth putting on the playlist.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 55 minutes, Rating: Great

Bombad Radio: Episode 288 kicks off with a discussion of the book Star Wars Made Easy. They talk a little about Inhumans, and then they get into their main discussion which is their recommended movie and television show picks for streaming services Amazon Prime and Netflix. If you have either service, and you’re looking for some recommendations on what to watch, this episode is worth a listen. Afterwards the fire up the porgs and top things off with a porg song. While the porg count has been retired, there are a lot of porgs in this episode.

Podcast Network: Bombad RadioRuntime: 1 hour 30 minutes, Rating: Okay

Brews and Blasters: Episode 137 opens with Chinese food, magic potions and beefcake tomatoes. They have a non-spoiler discussion of It, talk about Harrison Ford punching Ryan Gosling in the face, the Toys R Us bankruptcy, they discuss the upcoming trailer drop for The Last Jedi (this was recorded pre-trailer release), and there’s even some audio from their first episode. They also discuss Star Wars Rebels Season 4, speculate on the fates of the characters, there’s some listener emails, and need’em got’em.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Beltway Banthas: Episode 40 covers Abrams directing Episode IX, they get into some current affairs with the similarities between Roger Stone and Palpatine, they talk Russia, and for their main discussion, they speak with Star Wars author Chuck Wendig. That discussion leads to politics, Star Wars, the Aftermath trilogy, a few spoilers, his ideas for Mon Mothma and her decisions, and how The Force Awakens has shown some things that are currently going on in the world. Afterwards the interview they talk a little about The Night Of and Kubo and the Two Strings. For those who have read the Aftermath trilogy, this one is definitely worth a listen. I really enjoyed the interview with Wendig.

Podcast Network: Retrozap, Runtime: 52 minutes, Rating: Good

Blast Points: Episode 93 starts with news as they talk about The Last Jedi wrapping, Ron Howard tweets, runtime for The Last Jedi, and new Forces of Destiny trailer. For their main discussion, they talk about the weird relationship between MTV and Star Wars. There’s plenty of audio clips as they cover the progression as MTV covered the prequels, and they cap things off with the Master P interviews.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 56 minutes, Rating: Good

Bright Tree Radio: Thought Bombs with Mike Moriarty is hosted by Sophie and Phil and features special guest Mike Moriarty (Home One Hangout) as they drop some thought bombs on him. They talk about whether Qui Gon was the best example of a Jedi, whether Anakin was a good example of a Jedi before his fall, does Star Wars need an enemy like the Yuuzhan Vong, does Snoke fill that role, and whether we will we see Chiss. Nice episode with a lot of fun discussion. Note this was my first time checking them out and I was impressed. Good hosts, good audio quality and an interesting guest.
