Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: “The Evil Spielberg Pic & The San Diego Comic-Con Preview” episode starts off pretty fast with a lengthy audio clip from one of the Guardians of the Galaxy trailers. Everyone is pretty excited for this one. They also cover a picture of Steven Spielberg that made the rounds on Facebook and garnered some ridiculous comments, plus they talk about the stuff that will be happening at SDCC. Yeah, it being post-SDCC now, I hit this one a little late, but it’s still worth a listen. Beyond SDCC, they touch on a new Heroes tv show and Kevin Smith’s reaction to the Episode VII set.

“The New Thor, Captain America & Turtle That Are Also Ninjas” episode covers the usual recent geeky news. This one in particular discusses Marvel’s move to a female Thor in the comics, a new Captain America, who is voicing the Inquisitor in Star Wars Rebels, Once Upon a Time and Agent Carter updates, and other headlines. The main part of the show features guest Ryan Hurley for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles discussion. I haven’t been following the movie closely, so it was kind of humorous to hear all the rumors and announcements that have come and out and been contradicted. If you plan on seeing the movie, this is a great episode to get caught up on without having any of the movie spoiled.

Coffee with Kenobi: Book Chat with Jeffrey Brown covers his latest books Goodnight Darth Vader and Jedi Academy: Return of the Padawan, as well as his previous Star Wars books and a little on what he’s working on next (Jedi Academy Book 3 and The Force Darth Vader). Jeffrey talks about his creative process, working with the editors on the books, and where he draws his inspiration from. It’s a really good interview and something Jeffrey Brown fans won’t want to miss.

Disney Vault Talk: The Dumbo Episode may start out with listener feedback, but Steve and Teresa cover all the aspects of the movie in the main discussion. They have history, fun facts and lots of commentary on one of Disney’s shortest animated films. Plus there’s also some news on casting for The Jungle Book, and premiere dates for the news seasons of Once Upon A Time, and Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. News aside, the main draw here is the Dumbo discussion. This is a movie I haven’t seen since I was a kid, and after hearing their discussion, I’m drawn to wanting to watch the film again, this time with an adult’s perspective. One thing I’m learning from Disney Vault Talk is that old Disney films certainly hit hard with the nostalgia factor. There’s something about wanting to revisit those movies of your childhood.
