Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Beltway Banthas: Interview: Vince Houghton of the International Spy Museum is, as the title implies, an interview with Vince Houghton who is a curator and historian and the International Spy Museum. The interview is done by John Liang, so it doesn’t feature the usual hosts of Beltway Banthas, but this interview, which is more of a conversation, is pretty good as Vince also does a regular event talking about Star Wars spy craft which becomes the main subject of this episode. Vince talks about the spy museum, spies in Star Wars, flaws in Imperial intelligence operations, geospatial analysis in Star Wars, and also just his general thoughts on Star Wars and Disney. Very fun conversation.
Porg Count: 0 (Porg Free), Runtime: 47 minutes, Rating: Great episode

Blabba the Hutt: 40 Years of Star Wars – Live From Dublin Comic Con 2017 is the audio from their panel. They talk about a variety of topics from what made Star Wars great in the beginning to what will happen to Kylo Ren. They keep the conversation going for most of the episode and toward the end it turns over to a trivia contest for swag with the audience, but there is a lot of good discussion in the panel overall and it’s good audio quality so definitely worth a listen.
Porg Count: 1, Runtime: 1 hour 5 minutes, Rating: Good episode

Blast Points: Episode IG-88 starts off with news as they talk about Michael K. Williams being cut from the Han Solo film, the new warship and walker for The Last Jedi, and the rumored working title for the Kenobi movie. Then they get to the good stuff. The really good stuff. They talk IG-88, the infamous robot bounty hunter who stood silently next to Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back and who has continually showed up elsewhere. They talk about his first appearance, his return in the Droids cartoon, his presence in the Shadows of the Empire video game, the IG droids in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Forces of Destiny and his colorful Legends backstory. For IG-88 fans, this one is a must listen.

The Cassian & K-2SO #1 one shot is kind of underwhelming. Once again, Marvel throws in some average artwork and an unambitious story for a comic that kind of falls flat. Click here for our full review.

They talk about the artists and writers, how the stories played loose with canon, and their favorite stories.
