Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks:OMG! Star Wars Trailer” surprisingly doesn’t cover the trailer as much as the title of the episode would lead you to believe. They do however touch on the trailer and some of the controversies people are making a fuss over. Aside from the trailer, they also talk about the Jurassic World trailer, some comments Christian Bale made about playing Batman again, and some anniversaries for Star Trek and the Ewok movies. If you’re burnt out on TFA trailer discussions, this one is still worth checking out as Scott, Tricia and guest Jeff Roney talk a lot more about stuff outside the content of the trailer than say a scene-by-scene dissection. For fans of Assembly of Geeks, Tricia announced that she’ll be leaving the show soon do to time constraints. As a fan myself, it will be sad to see her go. Tricia has been a great part of the show and her, Scott and Jeff make a great trio.

Bombad Radio: Episode 174 features an interview with Star Wars composer Jesse Harlin who worked on Republic Commando, The Force Unleashed, Star Wars Battlefront, Star Wars Galaxies, The Old Republic and Star Wars 1313. He talks about composing, editing and arranging video game music, some of instruments he’s worked with, and even discusses some of the stuff he did for the cancelled Star Wars 1313 game. Sadly that music won’t be coming out, but they were able to share a snippet. Jesse teased that the game would have included Hutt gangster rap. For fans of Star Wars games or RebelForce Radio’s Star Wars Oxygen series, this is an episode worth listening to.

Episode 177 starts out with a live recording of Jeremiah and his wife watching The Force Awakens trailer and giving their initial thoughts, which I have to admit I haven’t heard anyone else do. But the real fun kicks in with Jeremiah’s interview with voice actor Corey Burton who talks about getting into the business, the voices and shows he’s done, coming up with the voices for Ziro the Hutt and Cad Bane, as well as his work for Disney and DC Comics.
