Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 140 continues their discussion of the Star Wars Expanded Universe as they dive into the Hand of Thrawn duology by Timothy Zahn. I never thought of it before, but they nicely summed it up as the series that tied up the Bantam era and delivered readers into the New Jedi Order. They give a good overview of what’s going on in the books without completely spoiling them.

Episode 141 is their live recording of the Nathan Fillion panel at Salt Lake Fan Experience. If you’re a Nathan Fillion fan, you won’t want to miss this one. He tells some funny stories from working on Saving Private Ryan, Firefly, Castle and more. Funny, entertaining, it’s a great show to check out. The audio is a little echoey at first, but it’s gets better pretty quick.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #17 ¬†features a chat with The Star Wars Heresies author¬†Paul McDonald. Unfortunately, I had a little bit of trouble listening to this episode as Paul tends to talk really fast and it was hard for me to keep up with what he was saying. It probably didn’t help any that I haven’t read the book. Regardless, fans of the book might want to check this one out.

Collectors Cast: Episode #2 covers LEGO and Disney collectibles and includes special guest Paul Harrison from Jedi Temple Archives who was able to get extra info out of Hasbro regarding Star Wars at the past New York Toy Fair. From 6-inch Black Series taun tauns, a cardboard Jabba dais with Salacious Crumb figure to Empire Strikes Back surprises (possibly a Wampa) and with the 3-3/4″ scale, a new Leia, a new skiff guard, and more. Lots of collectible news and some nice discussion in this episode. I’m certainly looking forward to the upcoming ESB figures. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
