Podcasts in Review

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. Plenty of Force Friday coverage in these, and lots of discussion on the Trevorrow being fired situation, but too soon for J.J.

Blabba the Hutt: Episode 35 kicks off with all their porgs. They talk a little about the Leia: Princess of Alderaan book, the Forces of Destiny shorts, their Force Friday experiences at Target in Arizona and the Disney Store in Ireland, Force Friday product availability, and they go over the Star Wars Rebels Season 4.
Porg Count: 80, Runtime: 1 hour 34 minutes, Rating: Good episode

Blast Points: Episode 90 starts with Trevorrow being dropped, thoughts on whether Rian should replace him or J.J. Abrams (which is funny considering J.J. did end up replacing him). They talk about the new trailer for Star Wars Rebels Season 4, then they get to their main topic, the Star Wars Adventures In Colors and Shapes book and record from 1984. The go over the book, the story, play audio clips and explore something I didn’t even know existed. Listen in and you too can hear Han Solo chew out Anthony Daniels for grabbing the wrong part for the Falcon. Plus you get to hear the voice of the Falcon‘s central computer and the book name drops hoojibs.
Porg Count: 2, Runtime: 58 minutes, Rating: Fun episode

Bombad Radio: Episode 278 covers Disney XD’s reboot of DuckTales. They talk about their memories of the original show, the movies, the new show, and how they compare. If you’re a fan of DuckTales, this one is worth a listen.
