Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Glenn Panel features audio from the Glenn Moreshower panel from Salt Lake Comic Con. While you probably won’t recognize his name, you would recognize his face and voice as he’s been in a lot of movies in small roles. He talks about show business and Hollywood and is actually really funny. He tells some good stories and has a hilarious tip for people to get over their nervousness. I recommend checking this one out, it’s a lot of fun.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode #36 is hosted by Dan and Jeff as they talk Star Wars news. Corey joins them for an experimental review of A New Hope done as if it’s the first time they saw it back in the day which is kind of corny but also funny. Then they have audio of a radio segment they did, an interview with Lou Mongello who talks Star Wars and Disney World (good guest), and they wrap things up with a collection of hilarious outtakes and then some listener feedback. Great episode. I also want to give a shout out to Jeff for filling in for Corey. He does a superb job. Fans of the show won’t be disappointed.

Celebration Anaheim Recap features their coverage of days three and four of Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. It’s recorded on their way home from the airport, so the audio is a little raw, but it’s still worth a listen as they have some good stories on what they did, who they met, and what happened.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:Dr. Doom vs The Muppets” is a fun episode covering Dark Crystal and Labyrinth sequels, a Ghostbusters reboot with an all female cast, Tricia’s report from Geek Girl Con, a Batman discussion and Michael Keaton’s comments on the role, plus the Lego Batman movie. They talk about the upcoming Archie vs Predator comic and propose Dr. Doom vs the Muppets. And there’s tv coverage for The Flash, Arrow, Gotham, and more. Great episode filled with tons of entertaining topics.

Bombad Radio: Episode 172 features an awesome interview with Dr. Travis Langley who talks about psychology and Batman. One of the great aspects of the interview is an observation he made. Batman is a hero define by his psychology, and his villains are in turn defined by their psychology. Dr. Langley digs into some of Batman’s most iconic villains and their various psychological issues. It’s a very intriguing combination of topics and a must listen to for Batman fans.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #25 includes special guest Ryder Waldron who talks about Salt Lake Comic Con 2014. The Bearded Trio provides some Spielberg updates and Jurassic World news. They reveal a new podcast that will be featured on their site called Legends Library and they share a decent sized audio clip from the hosts and their thoughts and experiences with the old Star Wars EU. It sounds interesting so I’ll have to check it out. Afterwards, Cory and Dan interview voice actress Catherine Taber (the voice of Padme from Star Wars: The Clone Wars). There are some audio problems with the interview. The first half and the last five questions are all fine, but in between there is a good sized chunk that got garbled by Skype. It only affected Cat’s audio, and it was only for part of the interview, so it’s still worth checking out. They asked some really good questions and Cat gave some good answers, really digging into the character of Padme.

Here’s this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode 1 is a long one, almost two hours, but hosts Tricia Barr and Teresa Delgado do a good job of keeping it interesting. In their debut episode, they cover a lot of ground, introductions, an overview of their intended focus for the podcast, their opinions on fandom and women, a great interview with Star Wars: The Clone Wars voice actress Catherine Taber, and so much more. I think my highlight of the episode, aside from the interview with Cat Taber, was Tricia and Teresa’s discussion segment on Boba Fett. Tricia isn’t a big fan of Fett but Teresa is, and it was fun to hear their opinions on one of my favorite Star Wars characters.

Fictional Frontiers: Episode 261 (listed as Episode #1 on Shotglass Digital) includes an interview with Kenobi author John Jackson Miller. Fiction Frontiers’ host, Sohaib, is one of the best interviewers out there, so if you like listening to interviews, you’ll want to check this one out. As always, he does a nice job talking with John, covering his book, and touching on his upcoming projects.

Episode 265 has a nice interview with Empire and Rebellion: Razor’s Edge author Martha Wells. Sohaib covers some of the choices Martha made in the direction of the book, as well as her view on Leia, Han, and the Alderaanian pirates. The interview is spoiler free, so be sure to check it out.

James Arnold Taylor’s Letter to the Fans (in its entirety)

Last Friday was a red letter date for me as the actor that has had the honor of portraying and bringing voice to one of the most well known characters in not just Star Wars history, but film and televisions as well, Obi-Wan Kenobi, for well over a decade.  Red letter in a way that brought both happiness and great sadness.

Over on Club Jade, Jawajames interviewed voice actress Catherine Taber. Catherine is the voice actress for Padmé on The Clone Wars, and has also done voice work for the upcoming video game Star Wars: The Old Republic. The interview delves into Catherine’s role as Padmé in TCW, as well as the other characters she’d one on the show.

James: Periodically, you also get to voice other characters on the show, from a child to a Nightsister to a tactical droid – what are some of your favorite moments with those characters?

Catherine: I loved playing Numa, the young Twi’lek in ‘Innocents of Ryloth’. I just love that whole script and I have a personal affinity for Twi’leks, I seem to play them a lot! And Karis the Nightsister, is just a badass. I don’t often play characters on the darker side. And before those episodes Dave was like, “I have something really cool coming up for you….”. He was right!

It also covers her character Vette in SWTOR, her previous work as Mission Vao in KOTOR, and her charity organization Games for Soldiers. Click her to read the interview, it’s well worth checking out, especially for TCW and game fans.
