Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 105 begins with Solo news, Episode IX news, the real story behind Black Diamond–which is hilarious–and then they go over The Art of The Last Jedi book. They highlight some of their favorite things from the book, go over some of the making of details, touch on Master Codebreaker’s original story, share their favorite art, and lament that there isn’t a Caretakers cartoon like Ewoks and Droids. They cap off with some listener feedback. Fun episode.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 1 hour 2 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Jason, and Gabe, Rating: Fun

Blast Points Podcast: Episode 106 begins with Solo LEGO news, the Pikes and the Kessel Run, Mimban stormtrooper and tie to Splinter of the Mind’s Eye and Rogue One, and a little Episode IX news. Their main discussion is the legacy of Jedi failure. From Palpatine’s election in The Phantom Menace without them noticing he was a Sith, to them losing their way in the Clone Wars, their hubris, and then Luke learning the lesson by ending things with his selfless sacrifice on Crait to help others.

Podcast Network: N/A, Runtime: 56 minutes, Audio Quality: Excellent, Editing: Excellent, Hosts: Jason, and Gabe, Rating: Good

Brews and Blasters: Episode 151 begins with Joe’s computer letting him down as the party starts. After they get done talking eggs, they celebrate being pregnant, and they touch on the importance of the number 2187 in Star Wars. They spend some time on the much loved alien Hammerhead, and they do some need’em got’em for new figures they’ve gotten. Fun episode and fun discussion. Also, a congratulations is in order for their big news. May the Force be with them.
