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.

Book Review: ‘Thrawn Alliances’ by Timothy Zahn

Thrawn: Alliances does something no other Thrawn novel has ever done, it teams up Thrawn with Anakin Skywalker and Darth Vader. With two different stories in two different eras, it delivers twice the adventure in one book. And let us not forget that Padmé is in this book, too. Click here for our full review.

They talk about their friendship, their collaborations, how they met, how George screen the first Star Wars film for Spielberg, their connections to Kathleen Kennedy, Lawrence Kasdan and J.J.

Bright Tree Radio: Episode 33 they go over the standalone movie rumors, then they discuss the seven deadly sins and see who in Star Wars falls into each one. Kind of an interesting discussion as I’ve never heard anyone do this before. They go through each of the seven sins, and see which characters are guilty of them. From bounty hunters and greed, to Krennic and envy. Good stuff. They wrap up with a mini segment on which Star Wars film they would get rid of.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 129 Jason and Gabe talk about their trip to Ace Comic Con and play the audio from their two panels. First up, Weird Star Wars which includes the Richard Pryor special, The Holiday Special, Turkish Star Wars, Japanese George Lucas commercials, The George Lucas Super Live Adventure, and more. The second panel has the audience doing trivia from the Rusty Miller quiz book, with a commtech chip bonus round. Not too bad of an episode to listen to, but I bet it would have been really fun to be there.
