Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 116 they talk about getting The Last Jedi on Blu-ray, the experience of watching it at home, they go over the documentary The Director and The Jedi, the deleted scenes and they touch on some of the other extras included. Now I specifically waited until after I watched all the extras before listening to this episode, but in retrospect, that’s really not necessary. Either way, you’ll enjoy this episode, assuming you like movie of course.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 1 hour 17 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Jason, and Gabe, Rating: Great

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 118 they go over the Solo trailer. This is a nice breakdown that keeps it fun as they touch on all the cool stuff revealed.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 53 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Jason, and Gabe, Rating: Great

Brews and Blasters: Episode 163 covers Mr. Miagi, vodka, the HasLab sail barge getting backed and what might be next, the Solo Denny’s commercial, aliens in the Solo cantina, Topps cards, Therm Scissorpunch, lobster recipes, Gamorrean guard figures, and Simon Pegg on changes in Episode VIII. This was definitely the funniest episode I listed to this week. Loved it.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Card Trader Illuminerdi: While there’s a handful of Star Wars podcasts I listen to on a regular basis, I try to branch out and listen to new ones every now and then. And yes, I do follow through on suggested ones (so feel free to hit me up with your suggestions). I got a poke on Facebook suggesting I listen to Card Trader Illuminerdy, so I did. First off, these guys live up to their name. They go in deep on the Star Wars Topps Trading App covering new cards, upcoming releases, and even the odds on different cards. Unfortunately if you’re unfamiliar to the trading app (like me) the discussion quickly gets overwhelming. I couldn’t really follow along with a lot of the stuff they were talking about. But, if you’re a big fan of the app, this may be the podcast you’re looking for. It’s certainly the only podcast I’ve heard of focusing on the game, they’ve got a good mix of hosts, good audio quality, and there’s some nice additions of humor and information. In particular, I checked out the July.17.2015 Episode.

Coffee With Kenobi: Coffee Chat with Pablo Hidalgo features a conversation with Pablo covering storytelling, Star Wars, and insight on the story group. I especially enjoyed hearing his comments on how they’re handling Vader as a character. The only downside to the episode is that Pablo’s audio is a little crummy, everyone else is fine. Still worth a listen.

Comic Book Noob: Ant-Man episode is a nice little episode that provides some background on the main characters in the Ant-Man comics, their many iterations, and how it ties into the film. It doesn’t spoil anything and for anyone unfamiliar with Ant-Man (like me) it gives some much needed insight on the character and the series without diving too deep into the subject matter and getting bogged down. It stays light, informational, entertaining, and gives just the right about of info for fans new to the character. I have to say the Comic Book Noob episodes are a great thing to check out. I’m really enjoying them so far.
