Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 79 kicks off with some rather intriguing and timely audio clips on Lord and Miller. They talk about the Han Solo news and breakdown the evolution of the project, going through the stages, and playing some audio clips as they go. They also touch on Ron Howard taking over and their thoughts on the whole thing. But that’s not it for this episode as they then transition to Genndy Tartakovsky, how he was let go when future projects were talked about, and they dive into his version of the Clone Wars and some of the cool moments from the show. They wrap things up with an interview with Star Wars author Jared Krosoczka who took over the Jedi Academy series. Great episode.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 124 jokes around with sponsorships, drinking Coronas, vikings, copper pots, and then they get to the news. They discuss the Han Solo directors getting fired, diving into listener emails, pizza, and some need’em got’em. Great episode with lots of fun packed in.

Comic Book Noob: Venom discusses the part time villain, part time ally of Spider-Man. They talk about the symbiote, its origin, how it works, its hosts, how Venom has wound up helping Spider-Man from time to time, and how the Tom Hardy Venom movie might tie into all of this. Good episode. Continue Reading 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.

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…
