Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 190 features an interview with writer and editor Stuart Moore who talks about E.G.O.S., Zodiac and Marvel’s Civil War. I really liked the comments he had about Zodiac and what it was like working with Stan Lee on that project. Very cool interview.

Episode 191 kicks off with some Star Wars news, then heads into their Star Wars Rebels discussion as they talk about the their initial thoughts heading into the show, their thoughts on season one, and how it compares to The Clone Wars. They do delve into spoilers, but I think most fans at this point have already watched all of season one, so enjoy.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode #17 starts with a Star Wars Rebels season finale discussion, dives into some listener feedback, features a quick Oscar discussion, and some more fashion tips from Amy Ratcliffe on customizing accessories. They also have an interview with Jennifer Landa about her Star Wars wedding, and this episode’s character discussion focuses on Leia. Great episode as always, with a really nice balance of topics in this one. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Assembly of Geeks:Failing X-Men, Reviving Spider-Man & Missing The Goonies” has lots of the usual geeky discussion. They talk about movies that should have ended sooner, they have a review of Kingsmen: The Secret Service, they cover some news topics like Harry Potter Funko items, and the conundrum of Marvel being a comic book company or a movie company. They also tackle the movie The Goonies and whether that type of movie works any more or whether child adventure movies have changed into something else. Lots of interesting topics and fun discussion.

Coffee With Kenobi: Rebels Reactions “Call to Action” episode features Tarkin voice actor Stephen Stanton who adds some excellent behind the scenes insight to the episode as he talks about his character and the show. They also talk some about Star Wars: The Clone Wars and James Luceno’s book Tarkin. Excellent episode and one you’ll definitely want to catch.

John Jackson Miller’s new Star Trek: The Next Generation novel is out today. Takedown is available in paperback and digital formats from Pocket Books. You can check Simon & Schuster’s main page for all the purchase links. You can also check out Amazon for an excerpt from the book.

An all-new novel of Star Trek: The Next Generation—one of the most popular Star Trek series of all-time, featuring the adventures of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise!

When renegade Federation starships begin wreaking destruction across the Alpha Quadrant, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise are shocked to discover that the mastermind behind this sudden threat is none other than Picard’s protégé and friend: Admiral William T. Riker. The newly minted admiral is on board the U.S.S. Aventine as part of a special assignment, even as the mystery deepens behind his involvement in the growing crisis. But the Aventine is helmed by Captain Ezri Dax—someone who is no stranger to breaking Starfleet regulations—and her starship is by far the faster vessel…and Riker cannot yield even to his former mentor. It’s a battle of tactical geniuses and a race against time as Picard struggles to find answers before the quadrant’s great powers violently retaliate against the Federation…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 84 goes over all the fun ALS Star Wars videos, they talk about the Star Wars fan film awards, the cover the Green Cross droid renovation, and go through all the con and mission reports for the 501st garrisons. One report that caught my attention and was pretty neat to hear about was a troop they did to an even for the blind. It was interesting to hear about the kids’ reactions to the 501st members.

Bombad Radio: September Free-For-All episode features James and special guests Scott Murray (Assembly of Geeks) and David Gremillion (Get Your Geek On). As always in the free-for-alls, they cover a lot of topics, this one focusing on all things Star Wars. They talk about the possibilities for Star Wars rides and attractions at Disney theme parks, merchandise options, and much more. They also dig in a little into Star Wars Rebels and Jake Lloyd.

Episode 165 is a live report from Salt Lake Comic Con 2014. Jeremiah runs down all the people he’s talked to. Kind of a random and inconsequential episode, so you can skip this one if you like.

Episode 166 features their audio from the Sam Witwer panel at Salt Lake Comic Con 2014. Sam talks about Being Human, Smallville, Battlestar Galactica, and lots of Star Wars topics. He dives into Maul, out geeking Dave Filoni, the selfish side of the dark side, and the proper viewing order for Star Wars. The panel was moderated by Bryan Young and the audio turned out pretty good. You can hear Master Bruce there in the beginning but he naps through most of the panel so it’s interruption free (for those who don’t know, Master Bruce is Jeremiah’s baby boy who is aptly named Bruce). Best of all, Sam tells lots of fun stories, so you won’t want to miss out on this one. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
