Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. There’s some pre and post-trailer release episodes in here.

Blast Points: Episode 94 dives into The Last Jedi trailer. Gabe and Jason keep it fun as always. From the AT-AT farm and Kylo’s space band-aid, to Phasma’s toothpick and the Rey vs Snoke showdown. They speculate on whether the Kylo/Rey scene is a fake out, the lack of Hux, and more. If you’re hunting down trailer discussions, this one is definitely worth putting on the playlist.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 55 minutes, Rating: Great

Bombad Radio: Episode 288 kicks off with a discussion of the book Star Wars Made Easy. They talk a little about Inhumans, and then they get into their main discussion which is their recommended movie and television show picks for streaming services Amazon Prime and Netflix. If you have either service, and you’re looking for some recommendations on what to watch, this episode is worth a listen. Afterwards the fire up the porgs and top things off with a porg song. While the porg count has been retired, there are a lot of porgs in this episode.

Podcast Network: Bombad RadioRuntime: 1 hour 30 minutes, Rating: Okay

Brews and Blasters: Episode 137 opens with Chinese food, magic potions and beefcake tomatoes. They have a non-spoiler discussion of It, talk about Harrison Ford punching Ryan Gosling in the face, the Toys R Us bankruptcy, they discuss the upcoming trailer drop for The Last Jedi (this was recorded pre-trailer release), and there’s even some audio from their first episode. They also discuss Star Wars Rebels Season 4, speculate on the fates of the characters, there’s some listener emails, and need’em got’em.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Beltway Banthas: Episode 40 covers Abrams directing Episode IX, they get into some current affairs with the similarities between Roger Stone and Palpatine, they talk Russia, and for their main discussion, they speak with Star Wars author Chuck Wendig. That discussion leads to politics, Star Wars, the Aftermath trilogy, a few spoilers, his ideas for Mon Mothma and her decisions, and how The Force Awakens has shown some things that are currently going on in the world. Afterwards the interview they talk a little about The Night Of and Kubo and the Two Strings. For those who have read the Aftermath trilogy, this one is definitely worth a listen. I really enjoyed the interview with Wendig.

Podcast Network: Retrozap, Runtime: 52 minutes, Rating: Good

Blast Points: Episode 93 starts with news as they talk about The Last Jedi wrapping, Ron Howard tweets, runtime for The Last Jedi, and new Forces of Destiny trailer. For their main discussion, they talk about the weird relationship between MTV and Star Wars. There’s plenty of audio clips as they cover the progression as MTV covered the prequels, and they cap things off with the Master P interviews.

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

Bright Tree Radio: Thought Bombs with Mike Moriarty is hosted by Sophie and Phil and features special guest Mike Moriarty (Home One Hangout) as they drop some thought bombs on him. They talk about whether Qui Gon was the best example of a Jedi, whether Anakin was a good example of a Jedi before his fall, does Star Wars need an enemy like the Yuuzhan Vong, does Snoke fill that role, and whether we will we see Chiss. Nice episode with a lot of fun discussion. Note this was my first time checking them out and I was impressed. Good hosts, good audio quality and an interesting guest.
