Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Full of Sith: Episode LVIII includes two interviews, both conducted by Bryan. One is with Billy Dee Williams and focuses mostly on conventions, fans and being in Star Wars. The second interview is with Wil Wheaton with a discussion on Star Wars board games since International TableTop Day is this Saturday. Aside from that, Bryan and Mike (Bobbie sits this episode out) discuss “This is Madness” and their thoughts on the match ups, Star Wars tattoos, binge watching The Clone Wars, naughty Star Wars Rebels pictures, as well as some listener feedback on Yoda, Force Priestesses, Anakin and redemption. Excellent discussion and intriguing interviews.

RebelForce Radio: Episode 3.28.14 is hosted by Jimmy Mac and Steve Glosson. They talk about RebelForce Radio going to Disney World for Star Wars Weekends this year. Scott Allen from the 501st Legion comes on talk about inducting Alan Ladd into the Legion. Plus they have Tom Kane on the show to talk about Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 6. Tom talks about TCW, Star Wars Rebels, dark Yoda, what would have happened if Yoda had lost his battle, voicing Yoda for “This is Madness” and more. Great episode and a must listen for TCW fans. I have to admit, I always enjoy the episodes with Steve a little more.

Today we wish a happy birthday to author Paul S. Kemp. Paul is making today extra special by throwing an online book party for his characters Egil and Nix. To participate, Paul is asking readers who have not read his two Egil and Nix books, The Hammer and the Blade and A Discourse in Steel, to go check them out.

For those who have already read them, Paul wants your reviews on Amazon or Barnes & Noble (you can check out our review of The Hammer and the Blade and A Discourse in Steel right here on Roqoo Depot). And for those die hard fans who have already bought and reviewed both books, be sure to share the word.
