Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 216 features an interview with voice actress Abby Craden covering her work in Guild Wars, Star Wars: The Old Republic and the expansion Uprising, as well as the challenges and experiences she’s face in the field of voice acting, working from home versus a studio, and the difficulties with pronunciations. Bombad Radio interviews a lot of voice actors, to the point that it’s almost become their niche, and as such, they’re pretty good at it. It’s worth a listen if you’re interested in that field.

Bombad Radio: Episode 213 features an interview with voice actor Quinton Flynn who talks about voicing Johnny Quest, Raiden for Metal Gear Solid, Axel in Kingdom of Hearts, Timon in the Timon and Pumba, and more. It’s a pretty good interview. Flynn keeps it fun, does some voices, and covers a lot of territory.

Brews and Blasters: Episode #7 is their film commentary for Battle for Endor. As an Ewok fan, I couldn’t resist digging back in the archives to listen to this one. Roll out the kill wagons! Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Big Beautiful Podcast: Episode 23 has an interview with Star Wars author Tom Angleberger who wrote some of the Star Wars origami books. He talks about where his ideas come from, how Darth Paper came about, defending the Ewoks, writing Return of the Jedi with a different spin, a victorian flare, and what the other authors are up to. It’s a neat interview and worth checking out as it sheds light on books that don’t get the most attention on major Star Wars outlets.

Bombad Radio: Episode 204 kicks off with a little news, then they head into their interview with voice actors Ellen McLain and John Patrick Lowrie. They talk about their early work, getting into the business, working on games like Portal, Fear, Team Fortress, and even writing a novel. It’s a fun interview and worth checking out.

Coffee With Kenobi: Episode #42 features a lot of interviews. First up is Jim Hill who they talk to about Star Wars Land at Disney World and Disneyland, from what’s known to what’s rumored. It’s an insightful conversation covering what will happen and the challenges involved. After an update from the Bearded Trio, they talk with Star Wars fan Torpedo Ted who was at D23 and shares the experience. Then they talk with Mark Van Ohlen about Star Wars Topps cards. While I don’t collect cards, I really like what they’re doing with those dark side cards with the skewed histories on the back. Those sound really neat. Lastly, they talk with Cole Horton who covers Star Wars and history. Lot of good guests packed into this one, though four back-to-back interviews was maybe a bit much. Felt like a long episode, and now looking back at it, it clocked in at 2 hours 41 minutes, so yeah, that’s a long one. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
