Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 216 features an interview with voice actress Abby Craden covering her work in Guild Wars, Star Wars: The Old Republic and the expansion Uprising, as well as the challenges and experiences she’s face in the field of voice acting, working from home versus a studio, and the difficulties with pronunciations. Bombad Radio interviews a lot of voice actors, to the point that it’s almost become their niche, and as such, they’re pretty good at it. It’s worth a listen if you’re interested in that field.

Bombad Radio: Episode 213 features an interview with voice actor Quinton Flynn who talks about voicing Johnny Quest, Raiden for Metal Gear Solid, Axel in Kingdom of Hearts, Timon in the Timon and Pumba, and more. It’s a pretty good interview. Flynn keeps it fun, does some voices, and covers a lot of territory.

Brews and Blasters: Episode #7 is their film commentary for Battle for Endor. As an Ewok fan, I couldn’t resist digging back in the archives to listen to this one. Roll out the kill wagons! Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
