Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 20 begins with a little news and speculation as they talk about the Episode VIII aerial set photos, Luke’s Force tree, the new Force For Change video, John Williams’ comments on doing the soundtrack for Episode VIII, Rogue One Vader pics, Mads on Rogue One, the new Han Solo and “Jabba Flow.” For the main topic, they go over their ten favorite Star Wars trailers which leads to an entertaining discussion covering the Revenge of the Jedi trailer, the tone poems, the Yoda Man ad, teasers and more. Gabe and Jason have just been nailing it with their episodes as I’ve enjoyed every single one of them. Their chock full of humor and Star Wars goodness that has quickly made them one of my favorite Star Wars podcasts to listen to. They are this close to being my absolute favorite at the moment.

BNN (Bombad Radio): Episode 5.9.16 covers 10 newsworthy stories for the week in a quick little burst that’s great for staying in the know without getting bogged down in a hour plus podcast. This week they talk about Chrome being the new #1 browser in the world, Seth MacFarlane’s new sci-fi show, the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ride closing, new Star Wars video game, Battlefield doing a WWI game, the young Han Solo casting, cartridge gaming making a comeback and more.

Bombad Radio: Episode 239 features an interview with voice actor J. Michael Tatum who talks about working for FUNimation, getting into the business, wearing multiple hats to make a living, dubbing vs. subtitles, joining the Dragon Ball club, and lots of advice on getting into voice acting. Afterwards Jeremiah and James cover some Star Wars news. Excellent episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 16 starts with a little Yoda and Maz Kanata news, their thoughts on the Blu-ray, and leads to their main discussion of Star Wars deleted scenes. This one is a fun one. They each cover their top 10 favorite deleted scenes from all seven films which leads to some hilarious discussion. I loved the idea of restoring all the deleted scenes for a TPM supercut longer than ever with an hour long podrace. Great episode with lots of laughs.

Blast Points: Episode 18 had me smiling three seconds into the episode. They touch on news, then head into a full discussion on Shadows of the Empire. It’s marvelous. They cover the book, the comics, the soundtrack and even the tv and movie tie-ins in all their goofy glory. A must listen to episode. Great coverage and tons of fun. This episode is definitely my pick of the week.

Blast Points: Episode 19 features guest Tom Berges, creator of I Grew Up Star Wars. Tom talks about how the website got started, hearing about Star Wars the first time, collecting, The Holiday Special, the radio dramas, Plastic Galaxy and more. It’s kinda like listening to an episode of My Star Wars Story. Pretty fun. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
