Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: When Wrestling Collides With Geek Culture starts with Superman, the Donald Glover news, the Guardians of the Galaxy teaser, the Aquaman movie, and they have on guest Ophidian to talk about Chikara wrestling which is a bit odd. I’m not familiar with it. It sounds kind of like live action roleplaying. Also worth noting, Jeremiah fills in for Jeff on this episode.

Beltway Banthas: Eric Geller Episode features guest Eric Geller as they talk politics and Star Wars.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 93 touches on bourbon, Ludacris, Star Wars jackets, acapella John Williams, Joe talks himself into opening up the new Disney Droid Factory set on “Need’em Got’em,” they get into Rex and Star Wars Rebels “The Last Battle,” and more. A blast as always. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 43 features an interview with Kevin Rubio. Kevin talks about his early life, film school, getting into television and animation, how “Troops” came about, how comics work, and writing for Star Wars: The Clone Wars. They get into some really cool stuff as they talk about “Troops”, how the special effects and sound effects were done, and who provided the voices. Their conversation about TCW was also insightful as Kevin talks about the limitations he ran into and how he wound up with Jar Jar. This awesome interview earns Blast Points Episode 43 the pick of the week.

Bombad Radio: Episode 251 features an interview with author Rob Smith as they talk about Rogue Leaders: The Story of LucasArts. They cover the history of LucasArts, the various games the company worked on, the gaming industry, Knights of the Old Republic 3, the company’s viewpoint on Star Wars games versus non-Star Wars games, and a lot more. Very intriguing conversation with a lot of interesting stuff. Definitely worth checking out.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 90 runs down the new shows that have joined the Retrozap podcast network such as Beltway Banthas and The Sandcrawler. They go through listener emails, dive into some sandwich talk, and follow-up on Force Friday. They talk about he versus packs, Disney Elite Series figures, Black Series 3-3/4″ Royal Guard, Lando and Ackbar. They also review Star Wars Rebels “The Holocrons of Fate” and talk about the new Rogue One Russian poster. Great episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Star Wars Spin-Offs Beyond 2020 starts with news, DC comic sales, they talk video game movies, then head into Star Wars spin-off film ideas like Boba Fett, Kenobi, Yoda and Ahsoka. That and more in this episode, pretty good.

Blast Points: Episode 41 kicks off with some Bendu impersonations as they get into the groove of the new season of Star Wars Rebels. But before they get into the season premiere, they cover some news, the Star Wars 2020 comments, the composer change up for Rogue One, Moroff and Pao, and the credit change for Filoni. Then they get into Rebels as they talk about Hondo and his Ugnaught crew, the Bendu, the similarity to the end of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and more. Fun episode as always, but with the AC/DC soundbyte, I have to give them high praise. It is my favorite band after all, so hats off to good taste.

Blast Points: Episode 42 starts with news as they talk about the final Rogue One trailer, some new info on Rogue One creatures and characters, plus some other rumors, speculation and news on Sabine and Maul. Then they talk about Star Wars toy releases. They have on guest Kile Moore as they talk Force Friday, play some audio clips from standing in line with fans, and compare this year to last year. Some good discussion. The conversations with fellow fans really added a nice touch. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Ausfans Radio: Episode 31 features a great interview with author John Jackson Miller covering his new trilogy Star Trek: Prey. They talk about Prey, the films, the tv series, his previous Star Trek stories, and what else he has coming out. Good audio quality and very impressive for an international interview as those don’t typically have the best audio quality. Good one to check out.

Beltway Banthas: Episode XIII is a fun one as they spotlight the Star Wars character Mas Amedda and discuss his role in the politics of Star Wars. I have to admit, I’d never really considered how important his character would have been, and it definitely seems a shame that Chuck Wendig didn’t play up on that a little better in Life Debt. They do talk about the character’s role in Life Debt which could be considered a little spoilery if you haven’t read that book yet. This episode features guest Mike DeRose. If you’re an Amedda fan, you’ll love this one, and if you’re not, you might just come away with a better understanding of the character.

Bombad Radio: In Memory of Eric Cone episode pays homage to their friend and Bombad Radio contributor Eric Cone who recently passed. They talk about his deep fandom, his love for Batman, Star Trek and the creators and artists, and they share memories of the good times they had. Nice episode which manages to stay upbeat while still paying tribute to a lost friend. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
