Now here is this week’s Podcasts in Review…

501stCast: Episode 111 covers The Clone Wars news, new approved costumes for the 501st, troop reports and upcoming events. I like the little Star Wars commercial segments in this one. Nice addition.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 133 kicks off with the Episode IX casting news, and they have some fun with it. Hand it to Blast Points to make the news segment entertaining. Then they go into their main discussion which covers the first official Star Wars convention which was back in 1987. They bring on special guest Richard Woloski from Skywalking Through Neverland to talk about it since he was there. They set the stage for what 1987 was like for Star Wars fans, then they dive into what they deem Star Wars Celebration Zero. They talk about the guests, the panels, the cosplay, what was there, the Archive Room, and Rich talks about video taping the George Lucas panel and grabbing a one of a kind collectible. Great episode and lots of fun. I highly recommend giving this one a listen.
