Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 161 starts off with an unboxing of Dungeons & Dragons Next, flows into a con report of SDCC 2014, then jumps into the main feature: an interview with actor Adam Lazarre-White who voiced Jacob in the Mass Effect series. Adam talks about he got into acting, his early career in soap opera, moving into voice acting, the differences between roles, identifying scenes, being the character, and even basing Jacob on Han Solo. Kind of a neat interview and worth listening to if you’re a Mass Effect fan or interesting in acting and voice acting.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #22 includes some feedback on the Star Wars Rebels trailer out of SDCC 2014, some comments on the X-wing revealed in the Force for Change video, and the usual “Expresso Shot” from the Bearded Trivia hitting film news including Jurassic World. Consetta Parker stops by to talk about the upcoming Rancho Obi-Wan Gala, and they interview author Ian Doescher. Ian talks about the William Shakespeare Star Wars books, finding the right voices for the characters, and even shares what he’s working on next. Lot of goodness packed into this one episode, so be sure to check it out.

Special Edition: Coffee with Kenobi Discusses SDCC 2014” includes their thoughts on the Star Wars Rebels preview clips and the character of the Inquisitor. Then they with special guest Jeff McGee (Assembly of Geeks) about SDCC and collectibles. Jeff’s always a fun guy to listen to and Star Wars Rebels and SDCC make good discussion topics. Another good one to add to your playlist.

Then there’s audio with a roundtable discussion with Dave Filoni, and other roundtables with Simon Kinberg, Freddie Prinze Jr. (who confirms that Greg Weisman was only with the show for season one), Tiya Sircar, Taylor Gray, Steve Blum, and Vanessa Marshall. Lots of great audio and answers from the cast and crew of Star Wars Rebels. A must listen to episode for Star Wars Rebels fans.

Jedi Journals: August 2014 episode is all about literature as they dig into new releases and upcoming titles, the newly announced Marvel Star Wars series, the new Marvel Star Wars omnibus, some special Star Wars hardcovers that Abdo Pub is offering on Amazon, and more.

James comes on later to talk about Star Wars Weekends, hanging out with his friend John Ratzenberger, talking with Mark Hamill, doing Obi-Wan for Star Wars Rebels and what his thoughts are on the show. Great episode with awesome guests.

Secrets of Star Wars: Episode 17 tackles the latest news. They cover the filming in Puzzlewood and Skellig Michael island. They have audio clips of Mark Hamill and Kevin Smith (which contains some masterful editing as they seamlessly removed every curse word). Plus Daisy Ridley and John Boyega rumors (are they stormtroopers?), the possibility of Gwendoline Christie being an Imperial officer chasing them, and the leaked plot rumor about Luke’s severed hand. All that, and the Force for Change video with the X-wing, thus bringing a bunch of Star Wars Episode VII discussion. If you’re looking for Ep VII discussion, this is definitely a podcast worth checking out.

Skywalking Through Neverland: Episode 41 has a recap of SDCC and a very lengthy, yet intriguing, discussion on geeks versus fans with guests Scott Murray (Assembly of Geeks) and Mark Ogusche­witz. They cover the geek transformation of society, the acceptance of geeky pop culture, and the thin lines between healthy and unhealthy fandom. Plus they cover Kevin Smith’s comments on Star Wars Episode VII, and feature some audio from George Takei which leads to a Star Trek discussion. Nice episode with lots of fun and insightful topics.

Star Wars Action News: Episode 430 is part two of their San Diego Comic Con 2014 coverage with an interview with the guys at Hasbro, their thoughts and excitement for the 6-inch Black Series, an interview with Kotobukiya, an interview with author Jeffrey Brown, and an interview with Daniel Wallace. Lots of great audio clips and interviews satisfying both collectors and lovers of the books. Definitely worth a listen.

Star Wars Bookworms: Episode 26 touches on the announcement of the Ventress/Vos novel that Christie Golden will be doing, then heads into a discussion of Dawn of the Jedi: Force Wars. As usual, they go into full spoiler territory, this time with special guest Zak “PT” Thorogood. They give their thoughts on the characters and what did and didn’t work for them. Afterwards they go into a full discussion of Legacy: Prisoners of the Broken Ring covering the artwork, characters and story. It’s a good discussion and worth checking out if you liked the two comic arcs.
