Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501st Cast: Episode 79 catches up on what the 501st Legion has been up to, gives a behind the scenes on the shooting of the Star Wars Mythbusters episode, some nice highlights of charities they’ve been able to help recently, and a cool interview with Jimmy Mac delving into the future of Star Wars.

Bombad Radio: Episode 127 has a real treat for Star Wars: The Clone Wars fans as they interview Brent Friedman, one of the writers for the show. They cover the start of his career with Dark Skies, Mortal Kombat and The Twilight Zone. Brent shares some interesting info on IMDB (Internet Movie Database) which I had no idea about. Then they dive into TCW. From working with George Lucas and Dave Filoni, to writing two more seasons that may never see the light of day, there’s a lot for Star Wars fans to enjoy.

Full of Sith: Episode LII features special guest Mark Newbold who talks about the odd and ends of running a Star Wars news site, and dives into a smorgasbord of topics. They cover Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 6, Star Wars Rebels, the possibility of more Star Wars shows on Netflix and more. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here’s this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: Episode 11.19.2013 kicks off with some humorous additions for Star Wars Episode VII from the hosts. Remember, this is a show where they speak in character as if they’re real super heroes in their secret headquarters. It definitely adds a spin to the episodes, and sometimes some good laughs. Beyond Star Wars, they talk a little Batman and Superman, Peter Pan movies (believe it or not, there’s a bunch coming out), and Hunger Games.

Bombad Radio: Episodes 107 features an interview with voice actor Dave Fennoy who voice Pong Krell in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. While they don’t talk too much Star Wars in this interview, Dave does talk about his gig for The Walking Dead video game, plus some other projects. Be sure to stay tuned after the credits as Dave some cool promos.

Episode 108 features an interview with author Drew Karpyshyn. Seriously, when it comes to author interviews, Bombad Radio has some of the best out there. Their Drew Karpyshyn interview is no different. If you’re a fan of Drew’s books, be sure to check this one out. They cover all of Drew’s career from video games to books, as well as his upcoming novels and more.

Episode 110 features the one and only Sam Witwer. I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, but it’s definitely on my playlists. Besides, it’s Sam Witwer, what more do you need to know? Witwer interviews are always a must listen.

I love You.  I know.  It’s only been a couple of weeks (Dec. 21) since the Disney Deal became official, but George Lucas is wasting no time moving on with his life.  He announced, via a Lucasfilm rep to the Hollywood Reporter, that he and long time girlfriend, Melody Hobson, are engaged.  Ms. Hobson heads Ariel Investment Llc., is the chairman of Ariel Mutual Funds, as well as chairman of Dreamworks Animation.  Lucas and Hobson have been a duo since 2006.

One of the good guys.  In a story right out of Fanboys, only this time it’s unfortunately true, J.J. Abrams granted a dying fan’s wish and arranged a private screening of Star Trek: Into Darkness.  The fan, known only as Dan, has only weeks left when a friend posted his plight on Reddit.  The post eventually attracted the notice of Abrams who reached out to Dan and his wife.  Dan, who is suffering from two forms of cancer, reportedly loved the film.  Honestly, after hearing this, I won’t care if the film is terrible (which I doubt).  I’m going to love it.
