Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 105 is hosted by Nicky, Joe and Marcus as they highlight a documentary on the UK Garrison, watch The Last Jedi trailer together and share their initial reactions, cover the new 501st costumes, and then head into troop reports. There’s even a dedicated segment for the Alaskan Garrison. Plus there’s a little bonus audio drama with Joe, Alan Flyng and Derek Lyons called “Enterprising Executor.” If you’d like to get an idea of what the 501st Legion does, this is a great podcast to check out as their troop reports cover all the charity events they participate in and help raise money for. There’s usually some pretty touching stories.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 1 hour 2 minutes, Rating: Good

BlastCast: Thoughts on the MNF The Last Jedi Trailer includes highlights and some interesting thoughts on the trailer, porgs, kyber foxes and the Kylo/Leia moment.

Brews and Blasters: Episode 139 features Joe and Chris as they start off with Bob’s Burgers. Then they talk about getting tickets for The Last Jedi, watching the trailer, and the theater they plan on seeing it at. They also talk about Batista and Blade Runner 2049 (spoiler free, high recommendations from both), Topps cards, they dive more into The Last Jedi trailer with their thoughts on it, but not a shot-by-shot breakdown as they might save that for later. Fun episode as always.
