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…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 77 starts with some news on The Last Jedi UK release and they talk about their own love of diving into spoilers when the movie gets released a day early. They also talk about the stolen Rancho Obi-Wan items, then they head into their main discussion, The Empire Strikes Back Super 8. They talk about how this 33 minute version of Star Wars plays out, what was cut, what was kept, and what’s different including alternate line readings. Good episode.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 121 covers haircuts, Conty’s dioramas and custom figures, a Blast Points shoutout, Chris Cornell’s passing, and then they dive into the Vanity Fair content. No need’em got’em but they do have listener emails. Fun episode.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode 71 features guests Ian Doescher and Brian Sims as they join Dan for some various discussions including items being stolen from Rancho Obi-Wan, new Hallmark items, LEGO, Funko Pop and a character poll. Dan also has a great interview with audiobook narrator Marc Thompson. Good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

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…

Book Review: ‘Guardians of the Whills’

Guardians of the Whills is a fun little adventure story set shortly before the events of Rogue One. This is very much a lead-in novel and not a history of the two characters or the order they are apart of. But it is fun. Click here to read our full review.
