Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 101 starts out with a little discussion of Thanksgiving, then they delve into the TV spots for The Last Jedi, all fourteen of them. They also touch on the international TV spots, the new magazine covers and articles, and the Disney park updates. Then it’s the main discussion – Ric Ollie. They talk about the other movies Ralph Brown (the actor who played Ric) has been in, they go over every line of dialog by Ric Ollie from The Phantom Menace, and they wrap up with listener feedback. I have to admit, I really like the character focused episodes as they are a lot of fun.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 145 kicks off with their recap of Rhode Island Comic Con. They talk about meeting Dolph Lundgren, the Blood Sport guy, Steve Blum, Newbacca, Andy Serkis, and Evil Lyn. Afterwards they talk news and get into some speculation on the Rian Johnson Star Wars trilogy. Fun episode.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 99 starts with the Rian Johnson trilogy news, the live action TV show news, and they discuss what could be next for animated shows. Their main topic is the old Star Wars fan film Hardware Wars which was one of the most profitable films ever made at that time. They talk about how it came about, who was in it, how it was released, how it ties into Poggle the Lesser, and they watch it and provide a commentary.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 56 minutes, Rating: Fun

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 100 celebrates their 100th episode by watching all six Star Wars movies at once via the overlay video which, if you haven’t checked it out, is pretty bizarre and awesome. They sort of do a commentary for it, while also tackling listener emails and voice mails. At over 2 hours, it’s a lot of fun in one episode.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 2 hours 26 minutes, Rating: Fun

Bombad Radio: Episode 290 features an interview with author and game writer Jeff Grubb. Jeremiah talks with Jeff about the differences in writing for different worlds and franchises, short stories vs novels vs comics, working with artists, his Forgotten Realms comics, writing for video games and the team effort, Guild Wars, PVP, PVE, text and socializing, the various aspects of gaming, the different types of writers in games now, planing out voices, amount of material you’re given to work with, and roleplaying books. Nice interview and a very interesting conversation that includes a lot of game designing stories.
