Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 49 starts with news, they go over the new Rogue One tv spot and they dive into the two international trailers. Their main discussion, however, is kyber crystals as they talk about some Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes that focuses on kyber crystals and how these items are important to Star Wars and Rogue One. Great episode.

Children of the Force: Episode 49 has some Star Wars Rebels Thrawn discussion, they watch and comment on the Rogue One trailer, they talk about the poster, the Rogue One Energizer commercial, and they discuss Ahsoka’s alias. Fun episode.

Classic Marvel Star Wars Comics: Episode #11 covers Marvel Star Wars #11 “Star Search.” As usual, they’re joined by Star Wars artist Randy Martinez as they go through the issue and comment on the story, characters and artwork for a fun discussion. Randy also talk a little bit about his Star Wars Celebration plans. Good episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

USA Today has revealed that Marvel will be doing a Darth Maul mini-series next year and it will kick off in February. The five issue mini-series will be written by Cullen Bunn and drawn by Luke Ross who illustrated The Force Awakens comic adaptation. The story will be set prior to The Phantom Menace.

The comic finds Maul an untested warrior under the training of Darth Sidious, who would later become the Galactic Emperor. Told to stand down from engaging with Jedi yet, Maul hunts down the worst of the worst in the cosmic underworld to vent his frustration.

After learning a young Jedi Padawan named Eldra Kaitis has fallen into the hands of a crime lord, Maul seizes an opportunity to test his skills against a real Jedi but also maybe turn someone else to the dark side.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Beyond the Vote: Episode 12 is their last episode, recorded on the eve of the election as they touch on the latest developments brought up on Hilary and talk some general politics. Note I listened to this one prior to the election, so I’m not sure how this one would fare if you listened to it now.

Blast Points: Episode 47 covers the Donald Glover news, some Rogue One tidbits, Daisy Ridley’s comments, new Star Wars Rebels episode titles and some brief descriptions, then they head into their main topic – is E.T. a Jedi? They talk about his ability to levitate objects and to heal, him saying home when he sees a Yoda costume, and the E.T. senators in The Phantom Menace. They even bring in The Crystal Skull as a possibility to how it all happened. Crazy awesome episode. Definitely worth a listen.

Blast Points: Episode 48 starts with news, some Episode VIII costume news, Han Solo news and the cinematographer, and they talk about the Star Wars Galactic Atlas. Their main discussion in this episode is Meco, which leads to some pretty fun and entertaining stuff. They talk about who Meco was, why he made a Star Wars disco album, the other albums he did, and they play clips of a lot of the Star Wars Meco songs, as well as some of the newer Meco Star Wars stuff. Part educational and part silly fun, this is a good episode to check out. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
