Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review featuring lots of The Last Jedi discussions. Keep in mind all of the episodes have spoilers for The Last Jedi.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 104 breaks down The Last Jedi from beginning to end. They give some nice farewells to the characters we lost, they nickname Bootleg Asti — which is perfect, and boy did they make me laugh about the caretaker party deleted scene speculation. This episode is just the thing to bring a smile to your face. Terrific episode.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 1 hour 34 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Jason, and Gabe, Rating: Great

Brews and Blasters: Episode 148 is their roundtable extravaganza for The Last Jedi as they get into spoilers and have on a bunch of guests. Chris and Joe kick things off as they talk about the collectibles at the theater, the John Williams featurette, and their initial impressions. They play some of the soundtrack in the background, then start breaking out the guests. First up is Dennis, Taxus and Jay Krebs from Starships, Sabers, and Scoundrels. Then Stephen and Swara from Beltway Banthas, followed by Mike from The Sandcrawler, Kendall, Courtney, Jay and Josh from Green Justice: An Arrow Podcast, Rich and Sarah from Skywalking Through Neverland, Becca and Devon from Kanata’s Castle, and Joey from Animanicast. Great discussions covering everything from the bomber run to the broom stick boy. It’s a long one, though.

Podcast Network: RetrozapRuntime: 3 hours 33 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Joe and Chris, Rating: Great

Card Trader Illuminerdy: The Last Jedi Spoiler Debrief is one big, chaotic but fun discussion of The Last Jedi. The topics are random, but the conversation is entertaining from beginning to end. And it’s all The Last Jedi focused as they delve into the characters, the scenes, the music and random things like square watermelons, porg turkey legs and fun with microphones. It’s not a very polished podcast, but it’s fun.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 2 hours 3 minutes, Audio Quality: Good, Editing: Good, Hosts: Mike, Tommy, Rhett, and Earl, Rating: Fun Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Book Review: ‘Canto Bight’

Star Wars: Canto Bight is a pretty loose tie-in to The Last Jedi considering the characters in the book don’t have any speaking lines in the movie, but it does have four enjoyable stories set in Canto Bight which helps with the world building. Click here to read our full review.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 102 dives into the Star Wars album Christmas in the Stars. They talk about how it came about, then they do a full commentary for every track on the album as they listen to the whole thing from beginning to end. Good episode with some fun discussion. Perhaps the most enjoyable way to listen to the entire album.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 103 is their The Last Jedi pre-show as they deal with the excitement and prepare to have their minds blown by all the craziness that’s sure to ensue. To kill the time, they briefly recap how we got to The Last Jedi, and they go over the red carpet premier event and play some of the audio from the stars. Still pretty safe for those avoiding all spoilers.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 53 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Jason and Gabe, Rating: Fun

Brews and Blasters: Episode 147 they prep for The Last Jedi with pub cheese. They have some fun with Snoke’s school photo, they talk about a Mark Hamill article, Rian Johnson’s latest comments on his new trilogy, they go on a tangent with The Room and The Disaster Artist, then they get back to Star Wars with Topps, pasta, Forcebacks, and they speculate on Leia’s fate, Snoke’s ultimate goal, Kylo Ren redemption, and then listener emails and need’em got’em. Fun episode.
