Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 190 features an interview with writer and editor Stuart Moore who talks about E.G.O.S., Zodiac and Marvel’s Civil War. I really liked the comments he had about Zodiac and what it was like working with Stan Lee on that project. Very cool interview.

Episode 191 kicks off with some Star Wars news, then heads into their Star Wars Rebels discussion as they talk about the their initial thoughts heading into the show, their thoughts on season one, and how it compares to The Clone Wars. They do delve into spoilers, but I think most fans at this point have already watched all of season one, so enjoy.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode #17 starts with a Star Wars Rebels season finale discussion, dives into some listener feedback, features a quick Oscar discussion, and some more fashion tips from Amy Ratcliffe on customizing accessories. They also have an interview with Jennifer Landa about her Star Wars wedding, and this episode’s character discussion focuses on Leia. Great episode as always, with a really nice balance of topics in this one.

Disney Vault Talk:The Sword in the Stone” features guest Sarah Woloski from Skywalking Through Neverland. They knock out some Disney news before digging into the Disney film The Sword in the Stone. Prepare for squirrels, wizard duels and Arthurian legends.

Geek Out Loud: Episode 124 starts out with the Harrison Ford plane crash, gets into listener feedback, and dives into a lot of movies with the “Pass the Corn” segment with Erich. From Neill Blomkamp films to new and upcoming releases, it’s a lot less focused than last time, but no less fun. Afterwards Steve delves into Marvel, DC, and more.

Radio 1138: Episode 25 begins with Mark and James talking about their trip to Toy Fair. Then Mark has a great interview with author John Jackson Miller about his latest novel Star Trek: The Next Generation: Takedown. With another interview after that, they talk with Jamie Benning about his filmumentary “Slimy Piece of Worm-Ridden Filth”, a mini-documentary on the people behind, and quite literally inside, Jabba the Hutt. Wrapping things up is one more interview, this time with the hosts of He Said He Said podcast. Great episode with a lot of good interviews.

RebelForce Radio: Episode 3.20.15 features the Star Wars news of the composer for Rogue One, speculation on J.J. Abrams’ role in future Star Wars films, and a fun conversation with voice actor Stephen Stanton as they talk about Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. Afterwards they go through the finalists of their share Star Wars contest, select the winner, and then get into their regular spoiler segment (which I’m still skipping so listen at your own risk). Good episode. Always fun to hear from Stephen Stanton and some of contest entries were pretty touching.

Episode 3.13.15 starts with some Star Wars news, Rogue One, and release dates. Then they have their big interview with Dave Filoni to talk about Star Wars Rebels. Dave covers Ahsoka, Tarkin, the Inquisitor, The Clone Wars, Celebration and teases season two. Afterwards they move on to the Harrison Ford plane crash and Star Wars book news with the announcement of 20 new titles for this Fall. With the Filoni interview, this is a must listen for Star Wars Rebels fans.

Rebels Report:Vision of Hope” is hosted by Pete, Andy and Kale as they share their thoughts on Ahsoka, Palpatine and more in a decent sized pre-show discussion, then dive into a review of the Star Wars Rebels episode. They bring up a nice observation about the system Zare is relocated to being the same system the Death Star is being built in. I also agree making Ezra’s parents B’omarr monks would be hilariously awesome and twisted.

Idiot’s Array includes some excellent speculation about how Lando might fit into season two. I know I’m catching this episode late, but Pete’s theory is a good one and worth listening to. The Empire bans mining on Lothal. Lando heads to Lothal to mine. Throughout season one, Kaiburr crystals kept showing up. What if Lando finds Kaiburr crystals, is chased down by the Empire for his discovery, and has to enlist the help of a certain Corellian smuggler to get the crystals off Lothal? Whether it pans out or not, those are some good connections. As always, Rebels Report provides some great discussion with their Star Wars Rebels episode reviews. Be sure to check them out.

Skywalking Through Neverland: Episode 70 includes discussion of Star Wars Celebration Anaheim and the parties they’ll be attending, plus some good Celebration tips. For example, pack for the day, always have a ‘plan b’ or ‘plan c’ for panels you want to go to, make sure to bring breath mints, and if you’re a collector, bring tupperware to protect them during the trip back home. They also talk about the perks of volunteering and some good things to know about Disneyland. Later on Donald Wicks joins them to talk about his new podcast Endor Cast which is hosted by members of the Rebel Legion. Good stuff.

Episode 69 starts with some birthday wishes, then touches on the news and Harrison Ford’s plane crash. Afterwards they have an excellent interview with Scott Allen, member of the 501st Legion and co-host of the 501stCast. Scott talks about costuming as Vader, his Star Wars memories, and being in the 501st Legion. Really cool interview and definitely worth a listen. Then they have special guest Margaret Kerry on as they review the seventh Tinker Bell movie, Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast.

Steve and Stephen on Steve: Episode 1 – This is a brand new podcast kicking off with hosts Steve and Stephen talking about Steven Spielberg. In this inaugural episode, they cover Steven Spielberg’s first film Duel starring Dennis Weaver. There’s a thorough discussion of the film, the shots, the way the villain is left unseen, and the concept of using a semi as the big badguy in a road rage movie. They also bring up a lot of trivia. The audio isn’t too bad, and overall, it’s an interesting discussion. If you’re a big Spielberg fan, you may want to check this one out.

Talking Apes TV:The Tyrant” covers yet another episode of The Planet of the Apes tv series including their childhood memories of seeing the episode, how it’s changed now seeing it as adults, a full breakdown of the episode and listener feedback. Good episode review overall and a great way for Apes fans to enjoy their fandom.
