Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 008 begins a multi-episode on the fall of Anakin Skywalker. In this episode they talk about his conception in the Force and whether that was caused by Palpatine, whether Anakin should have been taken or left on Tatooine, choosing Jedi masters for him, his relationship with Padme and the Jedi’s knowledge of it, whether giving him an apprentice was a good idea, and whether his fall is even sadder after Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It’s a good¬†discussion of all things Anakin.

Bantha Fodder: Episode 6 starts out with some miscellaneous topics, from drones to kidney stones, but things get pretty good when the main discussion kicks in. They talk about whether Rey caused Han to die in The Force Awakens. Did she push Kylo Ren into having to prove himself or did Snoke motivate him to take the leap? They throw down their arguments as each host tries to convince the other. Good one to check out. While there is a good argument for Rey leading to Han’s death, I think she’s more of a catalyst than a cause.

Beyond the Vote: Episode 002 is a solo episode with just Riley following the Carolina debate. I have to admit the podcast just doesn’t have the same dynamic without Scott. Together, they make a great team, but the solo episode wasn’t as good. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Happy Birthday, Elaine Cunningham

Today Roqoo Depot wishes author Elaine Cunningham a happy birthday. Elaine is the author of the New Jedi Order novel Dark Journey, as well as two Star Wars short stories: Red Sky, Blue Flame, and The Apprentice. Aside from Star Wars Elaine has written dozens of fantasy novels, many in the Forgotten Realms setting.

Elaine got her start in writing by answering an ad in the back of a Writers Digest magazine for Forgotten Realms. In order to familiarize herself with the setting, she poured over all the novels and games. Two books in particular really caught her interest: R.A. Salvatore’s The Crystal Shard, and Jeff Grubb and Kate Novak’s Azure Bonds. All of it led to her first published novel, Elfshadow. Since then most of her novels have been in licensed settings, but recently she has begun a series of “e-riginal” fantasy novellas entitled the Tales of Sevrin. The series starts with Honor Among Thieves and will continue with Honor Bound, and Word of Honor.

You can find out more about Elaine Cunningham by visiting her website, Facebook page, or by following her on Twitter.
