Curto Burns Collectors Cast: The July 18, 2013 Episode has tons of coverage for Star Wars collectors plus a full rundown on the Course of the Force and a quick talk with Steve Sansweet.

ForceCast: Special CEII Artist Interviews Episode four has Spencer speaking with JAKe, Matt Busch and Paul Allan Ballard. All three interviews turned out really good and are definitely worth listening to. Plenty of insights into the artists and their pieces for Star Wars Celebration II.

Full of Sith: Episode XXXI is a short episode but has some nice interviews by Bryan from San Diego Comic Con 2013. He talks with Tommy Yune about Robotech and its influences, TC Carson and his work as Mace Windu in The Clone Wars, Stephen Stanton and his work as Tarkin and others in The Clone Wars, and finally Erich Schoeneweiss from Del Rey. Erich was my favorite interview as he talks about each of the Star Wars books coming up, giving a glimpse of what each will be bringing to readers, although he had to skirt around the future of Star Wars books as they don’t know what that holds yet. However, he did say that Del Rey has had numerous emails and several face-to-face meetings with Lucasfilm regarding the sequels. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
