Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 005 delves into why the Jedi formed, being inherently good or bad, and the Force seeking balance. Ultimately they question whether the galaxy far far away would be better off without the Jedi. If you’re looking for a discussion focused Star Wars show, this one’s worth a listen.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 006 covers Force powers from coolest to lamest to whatever is needed to move the story forward. They also talk about masking Force your presence and the possibility of becoming too reliant on Force powers. My one complaint in listening to the show so far is there is a little bit of EU hating going on. Now I might just be overly sensitive to good ole Legends as I seem to be one of the few people who would say they like the whole thing rather than just liking parts of it, but to each their own. On the plus side, it’s not like they’re making EU hating a central focus of the podcast, it just creeps in here and there.

Blabba the Hutt: Episode 16 starts with iTunes reviews, then they get into Episode VIII and Rogue One news. They talk a little about Toy Fair, the stormtrooper who banged his head, Ewan doing a Force ghost and more. This was my first time tuning in. Basically it’s a news coverage format show where they add their commentary and thoughts on the news topics. The hosts are fun and they’be got good audio quality. Unfortunately I’m not really looking to add more news coverage shows to my regular playlist, however I would be interested to know if they stick to the news format or if they ever do discussion topic focused shows as I do like the hosts and would like to hear them talk about things other than just the news.

Book Review: ‘Red Rising’ by Pierce Brown

There’s nothing worse than reading a great book, being swept up in that last page, and then it’s over. There’s nothing more to read. It’s that moment when you wonder, “what am I going to do next?” Well if you’re looking for another great book to read, might I suggest Red Rising. It was so good that I’m once again left wondering that painful question of what to read next. The problem is Red Rising was so good, it’s hard to find anything else that can match it.
