Bombad Radio: Episode 86 doesn’t have much Star Wars discussion. They talk with Shaka about Teen Titans and DC, Shery DeWinter about Star Wars Descension and Omnae about The Rebel Faction (both roleplaying sites), then Jon with some discussion about roleplaying.

ForceCast: Episode 266 does not have host Eric Geller on, but does have to substitute hosts, Lou and Nate from The Sabacc Table. Along with Erik, they talk about the latest news and dive into some discussion about the prequels, Celebration Anaheim and more. Not too bad of an episode. Erik, Lou and Nate have a pretty good chemistry that works well for the show.

Galactic Escape Pod: Episode 17 includes special guest Mark Newbold who talks about Caravan of the Force and Celebration Europe II. The show also covers some headlines and includes an audio clip of Words with Warwick: Mark Hamill.

Jedi Journals: the August 2013 Episode has full coverage of all the current and upcoming Star Wars comics and books. They also have a great interview with editor Shelly Shapiro who talks about the NJO, Kenobi and the upcoming Star Wars movies. As if that wasn’t enough, they also squeeze in an interview with author Troy Denning who talks Crucible.

RebelForce Radio: Episode 08.16.2013 provides some coverage from Wizard World Chicago Comic Con 2013. Jimmy and Jason talk about seeing the Star Wars Black Series out in the wild, they have a great discussion with Chris Spice about Jet Lucas, and they also have a great interview with Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) where they talk Star Wars. Really good episode all around. I also found their interview with the Star Wars burlesque girls rather funny, especially their mournful post-cap as they lament not being able to go to the show. If you’re interested in finding out what the show was like, be sure to check out Star Wars Action News Episode 401 which included a colorful report of the Star Wars burlesque shows.

Star Wars Action News: Episode 401 provides coverage of Wizard World Chicago Comic Con 2013 with lots of toy finds. They cover Star Wars collectible news, but also a review of the Star Wars burlesque shows A Nude Hope and The Empire Brings Sexy Back. If you’re thinking about attending one of the shows, they provide an excellent review of both shows.

Star Wars Beyond the Films: Episode 85 gives a full breakdown, comic-by-comic, of Legacy: Shards. If you’re looking to skip the reading and just get the datadump of what happened, or a recap from another perspective, it’s worth a listen.

Star Wars Bookworms: Episode 9 has an interview with comic writer Justin Aclin who wrote Defenders of the Lost Temple and The Smuggler’s Code. It’s a great interview and definitely worth checking out. Justin provides some cool insight into the elements he put into the comic and the inspiration for some of things that happened.

Star Wars Report: Episode 99 starts off with some discussion between hosts Bethany, Riley and Mark as they talk about Celebration Anaheim. Later they interview Brian and Nanci from Tosche Station who discuss how they got into fandom, blogging and podcasting. They also cover their upcoming appearance at Dragoncon and the Star Wars Panels they’ll be on. If you’re a fan of Tosche Station, this is a good episode to check out.
