Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Backseat Book Club: Episode 24 features an interview with author Matthew Stover who digs deep into the themes he likes to explore in his books. Most notably, they cover his Acts of Caine series and the first book, Heroes Die, but they do briefly mention his tie-in work, including Star Wars. It’s a revealing look at what makes him tick as a writer and his interest in violence. He also mentions a few projects he is currently working on: a hard boiled detective novel which he is finishing up, a tie-in novel which he’ll be working on next, and a return to the Acts of Caine series in the near future.

Coffee with Kenobi: Book Chat with Martha Wells episode has a nice interview with the author of Empire and Rebellion: Razor’s Edge. Martha reveals the different aspects she strove for with the characters, the areas she wanted to avoid, how her fanfic work affected the story, and a whole lot more.
