Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Egon Spengler & the Toy Story Theory Episode includes some fun Ghostbuster references in honor of Harold Ramis. They also talk Star Wars vs Star Trek, a theory about Andy’s mom in the Toy Story films, and some recent news and rumors for television and movies. Fun discussion as always.

Bill, Ted & Ahsoka’s Excellent Adventures Episode combines Star Wars: The Clone Wars with Bill & Ted. If you haven’t watched TCW Season 6 yet, don’t worry, they don’t dive into any of it so there’s no spoilers, but they do talk about the show. They also talk about Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, the possibility of a third film, and the movie’s 25th anniversary. And speaking of 25th anniversaries, they cover what other geeky films are celebrating their 25th this year. Plus they talk GothamTransformers 4 and present their geek awards for 2013.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #14 features special guest Tha Mike Pilot (from Full of Sith podcast) and a very excellent discussion on the most iconic Star Wars character, Darth Vader. From the imposing figure in the black mask and the father seeing his son as a Jedi, to the young man who fell to the dark side, they cover all aspects of Anakin and Vader. Great conversation to listen to.

Full of Sith: Episode LV features special guests Amy Ratcliffe and Jill Pantozzi as they discuss Disney and Hasbro marketing as it pertains to gender, the female figures of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and much more. They’ve deeply into some heavy topics, providing lots of insightful observations and opinions.

The Special Release: Aaron Allston Episode is both heartfelt and humorous. Bryan Young, Janine Spendlove, Ron Garner and Michael A. Stackpole share their memories and stories of Aaron. For those who knew Aaron or loved his writing, this is a very touching episode. It’s also nice to hear that they working to honor Aaron’s memory, and that there are a couple more Allston tales waiting for us in the future.

Radio 1138: Episode 4 brings some thoughtful discussion on Star Wars: Rebels and whether new character focus is the way to go to capture interest and if Episode VII will do the same. Later in the show, they speak with Iain Lowson, the writer for the Star Wars Fact Files. Iain talks about how fun it is writing the Fact Files, how far out they are, whether Rebels will be included, whether Episode VII content will be included, and how he got started writing for Titan magazine. It’s a very nice interview and definitely worth catching. After that, they speak with Jonathan Wilkins about Star Wars Insider and the next issue. The show wraps up with memories of Aaron Allston. All in all, a great show.

Whether you’ve been benge watching Season 6 or not, this is a great episode to complement the new episodes.
