Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 78 touches on Star Wars Battlefront II, Han Solo crew gear, then they dive into their main discussion – Star Wars on QVC. They talk about the content that was on the channel, the products, the callers, and Mark Hamill’s involvement complete with some audio clips. As someone who missed out on the whole QVC Star Wars thing, this was a fun episode.

Bombad Radio: Episode 280 is an interview with make-up artist Brian Sipe who talks about X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, working with actors, the challenges with the make-up, and other movies he’s worked on. It’s a good interview. Afterwards there’s some general movie discussion. Good episode.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 123 features Joe and special guest host Matt Moore as they talk about home brewed gin, vodka’s of choice, heavy metal, Conan, Robert E. Howard, Lovecraft, how they got into comics, and then they get into Star Wars comics. They touch on the Han Solo mini-series, the Captain Phasma mini-series, Poe Dameron, the main title, Lando and Doctor Aphra. Fun episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

They also talk about the stolen Rancho Obi-Wan items, then they head into their main discussion, The Empire Strikes Back Super 8.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Awards Chatter: Alexander Skarsgård episode is pretty interesting. I’m more familiar with his father’s movies than I am his, but I have seen a couple. Alex talks about his dad, his first roles, joining the marines, Generation Kill, True Blood and Big Little Lies. Worth checking out.

Blast Points: Episode 76 starts with a little The Last Jedi news, Pablo’s comments on Phasma, Jedi books, the vice admiral and DJ. Plus they cover LEGO reveals, Snoke on an elevator, BB-AD, and the ILM reunion. For the main discussion, they do something really fun. They dive into the old Phantom Menace CommTech chips that Hasbro made. They play every single one. To keep things fun, they try to guess which figure each CommTech chip came with. Great episode.

Children of the Force: Episode 72 features Al, Liam and Nick as they talk about various stuff, Nick’s theories on DJ and the vice admiral in The Last Jedi, they discuss the Canto Bight people, Krennic’s last thoughts, a Yoda impression, then they talk Force Arena. They go deep into Force Arena, so if you haven’t played it, you might get lost in the discussion. Good episode overall. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

’80s All Over: July 1981 is an interesting look at all the movies that came out in July 1981. Hosted by Drew McWeeny and Scott Weinberg, the podcast covers all of the movies of the 80’s month-by-month. In this episode they cover a lot of movies, from ones you may never have heard of like Force Five, Gas and Endless Love, to more memorable films like Escape From New York, The Fox and the Hound and Arthur. Whether the film was good or bad, they share their opinions, some details and facts on each movie, and give listeners an idea of films they might want to check out and ones to avoid. If you’re into movies, you might want to give this one a try. FYI there is adult language so expect F bombs.

Blast Points: Episode 75 covers the new leaked Han Solo pics, The Last Jedi Vanity Fair content, a listener questions on the Gungan peace globe, an R2 song, and reviews. Fun packed episode, especially with all the Vanity Fair discussion which is the main focus of this one.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode 69 features guests Ryder Waldron and Matt Moore as they talk toys, Canto Bight, the Variety Fair pics, and then they talk with Jeff Dwoskin about Star Wars, Jar Jar and the Clone Wars. Dan’s audio is a little quiet, otherwise a good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 74 is pure fun. They celebrate the 31st anniversary of “The Great Heap” Droids tv movie. They start off with some trivia on the show, then dive in with a full length commentary on “The Great Heap.” You can hear the audio of the show in the background which makes it easy to follow along. With Jason and Gabe’s commentary, it’s just plain fun. Great episode.

Bombad Radio: Episode 278 features a cool conversation with author J.W. Rinzler as they talk to him about his new book All Up: Odyssey of the Rocketmen. They talk about the men behind the rockets, what the research for this project was like, and even some aliens discussion. Great interview to check out.
