Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points: Episode 43 features an interview with Kevin Rubio. Kevin talks about his early life, film school, getting into television and animation, how “Troops” came about, how comics work, and writing for Star Wars: The Clone Wars. They get into some really cool stuff as they talk about “Troops”, how the special effects and sound effects were done, and who provided the voices. Their conversation about TCW was also insightful as Kevin talks about the limitations he ran into and how he wound up with Jar Jar. This awesome interview earns Blast Points Episode 43 the pick of the week.

Bombad Radio: Episode 251 features an interview with author Rob Smith as they talk about Rogue Leaders: The Story of LucasArts. They cover the history of LucasArts, the various games the company worked on, the gaming industry, Knights of the Old Republic 3, the company’s viewpoint on Star Wars games versus non-Star Wars games, and a lot more. Very intriguing conversation with a lot of interesting stuff. Definitely worth checking out.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 90 runs down the new shows that have joined the Retrozap podcast network such as Beltway Banthas and The Sandcrawler. They go through listener emails, dive into some sandwich talk, and follow-up on Force Friday. They talk about he versus packs, Disney Elite Series figures, Black Series 3-3/4″ Royal Guard, Lando and Ackbar. They also review Star Wars Rebels “The Holocrons of Fate” and talk about the new Rogue One Russian poster. Great episode. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
