Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Awards Chatter: Alexander Skarsgård episode is pretty interesting. I’m more familiar with his father’s movies than I am his, but I have seen a couple. Alex talks about his dad, his first roles, joining the marines, Generation Kill, True Blood and Big Little Lies. Worth checking out.

Plus they cover LEGO reveals, Snoke on an elevator, BB-AD, and the ILM reunion. For the main discussion, they do something really fun. They dive into the old Phantom Menace CommTech chips that Hasbro made. They play every single one. To keep things fun, they try to guess which figure each CommTech chip came with. Great episode.

Children of the Force: Episode 72 features Al, Liam and Nick as they talk about various stuff, Nick’s theories on DJ and the vice admiral in The Last Jedi, they discuss the Canto Bight people, Krennic’s last thoughts, a Yoda impression, then they talk Force Arena.
