Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blabba the Hutt: Episode #19 is their Star Wars Rebels season two finale roundtable episode. Jamie and Kate are joined by friends Gary, Matt and Rod as they discuss the episode. With four Irish guys and just one girl, it’s not the most diverse roundtable, but it’s okay. I think the regular episodes have a lot better dynamic between just Jamie and Kate. The roundtable isn’t a bad idea, but it might benefit from a different selection of guests.

Blast Points: Episode 12 covers some Episode VIII rumor/leaks/news like Luke being in a casino, they talk about Donnie Yen’s Instagram account, Rogue One speculation, Star Wars Rebels “Mystery at Chopper Base” thoughts, Gary Whitta writing more Star Wars Rebels episodes, who’s Rey, her role/destiny and the importance of Kenobi, and a deep dive into Rey’s vision as they analyze the audio with a complete breakdown of both left, center, front right, etc audio channels. Very interesting as you can pick up a lot of stuff you wouldn’t ordinarily catch.

Blast Points: Episode 15 is a special mini-episode devoted to the Rogue One trailer as they talk about Mon Mothma, the droid character, the lack of Mads, the tone and more as they go through it scene-by-scene. Funny episode with some good observations. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. Warning, Star Wars Rebels spoilers below.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 009 is the second part of their Breaking Anakin discussion. They talk about why Yoda should have trained Anakin, Anakin living a lie, whether giving him a padawan was a good idea, Padme’s role in Anakin’s fall, and whether Obi-Wan was to blame. Great discussion.

Blast Points: Episode 13 is devoted to the Star Wars Rebels finale “Twilight of the Apprentice.” They talk about the great use of Maul, why Yoda sent Ezra to Malachor, the look of Vader’s face, Kanan being blind, and where the series will go from here. Great mini-episode with fun discussion and some humor.

Brews and Blasters: Episode #64 dives right into the Star Wars Rebels season two finale “Twilight of the Apprentice.” They talk about punches being pulled with deaths off screen, Kanan now being Ram Kota, listener feedback on the finale, Maul being there, where his lightsaber came from, what happened to the Darksaber, Mike Audette joins them as they get into Maul being over Kenobi, Vader battle damage. Dengar Dan jumps in and they talk helicopter lightsabers, Ezra’s lightsaber being destroyed, the temple guard connection, and is Ahsoka alive. Courtney joins them as they discuss whether Ahsoka’s story should have come to an end, what did Yoda send them after, Yoda and bad advice, Ezra and the Sith holocron, Vader’s eyebrow, and there’s one more guest, Mike McDonald. It’s a fun roundtable discussion. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

The 602 Club: Episode S12 covers the ebook novella The Perfect Weapon by Delilah S. Dawson. This one does delve into fun spoilers, but it’s an excellent discussion for those who have already read the story. They dive into the characters, the story elements, a possible Kylo Ren connection, what’s in the box, and an interesting parallel between Bazine and the Jedi.

Brews and Blasters: Episode #46 features a fansite group interview with Star Wars Rebels voice actress Vanessa Marshall. It’s a fun interview and worth a listen.

Coffee With Kenobi: Walt Disney World Meet Up episode takes place at Disney World as Dan, Aaron and Sandra talk about Star Wars with fellow fans, announce that Aaron will be taking over Rebels Reactions, and they do the five questions. It’s fun with fans and a nice listen. Afterwards they also have an interview with voice actress Ashley Eckstein which is a great way to cap off the episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
