Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 162 is actually a remix of two old episodes featuring an interview with actor, director and voice actor Kristoffer Tabori. For the first time, they present the two part interview in one seamless episode. I hadn’t hear this one before, so it was a fun interview to listen to. Kris talk about the work he’s done, voicing HK-47 in KOTOR, auditioning for Star Wars: A New Hope and shares a lot of fun Hollywood stories.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #23 starts off with some Star Wars Rebels discussion as they cover the 7 minute preview clip. The Bearded Trio chimes in with a quick interview with Cory Dee Williams. Afterwards, Dan and Cory have a spoiler free Guardians of the Galaxy chat. Then there’s the main feature: their interview with author Adam Bray on the Star Wars Rebels: The Visual Guide. Adam talks about his travel books, working with different teams to make the Visual Guide, and some fun general Star Wars discussion.

Full of Sith: Episode LXXVIII is their “Rumor Control” show focusing on the latest Star Wars Episode VII rumors and possible leaks. If you’re avoid rumors, you’ll definitely want to skip this one. However, if you want to catch up on all the latest rumors, this is a great episode to listen to. They cover the Stormtrooper helmets, Han Solo’s outfits, the cyborg/inquisitor Vader-villain, and a very nice breakdown of how all of these rumors might flow together. The show also starts out with some listener feedback covering previous topics like Shadows of the Empire, evil Yoda, etc. It’s a good episode to check out.

Bombad Radio: Episode 161 starts off with an unboxing of Dungeons & Dragons Next, flows into a con report of SDCC 2014, then jumps into the main feature: an interview with actor Adam Lazarre-White who voiced Jacob in the Mass Effect series. Adam talks about he got into acting, his early career in soap opera, moving into voice acting, the differences between roles, identifying scenes, being the character, and even basing Jacob on Han Solo. Kind of a neat interview and worth listening to if you’re a Mass Effect fan or interesting in acting and voice acting.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #22 includes some feedback on the Star Wars Rebels trailer out of SDCC 2014, some comments on the X-wing revealed in the Force for Change video, and the usual “Expresso Shot” from the Bearded Trivia hitting film news including Jurassic World. Consetta Parker stops by to talk about the upcoming Rancho Obi-Wan Gala, and they interview author Ian Doescher. Ian talks about the William Shakespeare Star Wars books, finding the right voices for the characters, and even shares what he’s working on next. Lot of goodness packed into this one episode, so be sure to check it out.

Special Edition: Coffee with Kenobi Discusses SDCC 2014” includes their thoughts on the Star Wars Rebels preview clips and the character of the Inquisitor. Then they with special guest Jeff McGee (Assembly of Geeks) about SDCC and collectibles. Jeff’s always a fun guy to listen to and Star Wars Rebels and SDCC make good discussion topics. Another good one to add to your playlist.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Assembly of Geeks: “The Fangirls Take Over” Episode replaces Admiral 80’s with Teresa Delgado as they talk Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Marvel movies, The Big Bang Theory and more. Lots of fun discussion and great addition to your playlist.

Full of Sith: Episode L covers the little moments of Star Wars as Mike, Bryan and Bobbie talk about the small things that really impact them when they watch the films. From the Ewok warrior crying over his fallen comrade to Luke staring off at the twin sunsets, they cover moments from all of the films.

Episode LI is a Valentine’s themed episode as Mike, Bryan, Bobbie and special guest Amy Ratcliffe discuss who their Star Wars Valentine would be and some of the ways they’ve shared Star Wars with others. Definitely some fun and funny discussions in this one.

Geek Out Loud: Episode 82 features a really nice interview with James Arnold Taylor. Steve Glosson breaks away from typical JAT interviews by pretty much avoiding Star Wars completely and focusing on James’ other work, including his new book JAT 365. If you’re a James Arnold Taylor fan, you’ll want to give this one a listen. The interview starts around 1:09:00. Afterwards, Steve and James do bad impressions theater which is kind of fun. They do the Death Star meeting scene but with Doc Brown, Bane, Fred Flintstone and Bod Dylan. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 124 features an interview with author Richard Lee Byers covering his latest book, The Reaver, which is part of the Forgotten Realms The Sundering series. As with most of Bombad Radio’s interviews, this one is really good. While spoiler free, they still dive into the nature and subject matter of the book, touch on Richard’s career experience in psychology (and how that has helped or not helped his career), and take a look behind the scenes at the creation of The Sundering series.

Episode 122 features an interview with Benton Jew, one of the storyboard artists for The Phantom Menace, and a longtime ILM employee. Benton talks about storyboarding, working with George Lucas and how he differs from other directors, designing Edgar for Men In Black, and creating Jedi Master Oppo Rancis.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #12 has a special interview with James Arnold Taylor. While James has been making the rounds on various podcasts, Cory and Dan manage to cover some new topics and angles as they get James to talk about how the events in the The Clone Wars changed Anakin and Obi-Wan’s relationship in the overall story. Fans of Obi-Wan will not want to miss this episode. They also get around to James’ new book, JAT 365 and how that idea came about, before looping back into Star Wars and some intriguing discussion on familiar religious elements and motifs in the films.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode 9 covers the viewing order of the Star Wars films. Which is best: one through six, OT then PT, or the four, five, one, two, three, six order? They also talk with Craig Dickinson exploring the uses of Star Wars in the classroom. Lots of discussion and lots to listen to.

Curto Burns Collectors Cast: Episode 12.20.2013 covers vacation trips, Star Wars holiday gifts, the possibility of a revamp for the show (and a new name) plus special guest Teresa Delgado who talks about her own holiday Star Wars collecting.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode 2 features special guest Ashely Eckstein and a whole lot of coverage of Her Universe. Tricia and Teresa cover all sorts of items with Ashley and they even discuss fashion tips. Not the best episode for male listeners like myself, but I’m sure it’s one the ladies will enjoy.

Full of Sith: Episode XLV features guest Mark Dago as he, Mike and Bryan talk about a lot of Star Wars and a little rap music. Some really nice Star Wars discussions in this episode. And since Mark is the one behind Full of Sith’s intro music, it also adds some more context to the podcast.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Full of Sith: Episode XLII features special guest Darren Hayes (Savage Garden) who has some wonder discussions about Star Wars. I’ve never listened to Savage Garden, so I know nothing about Darren’s musical background, but he turned out to be a really fun guest and I really enjoyed listening to the show. Don’t skip this one.

Episode XLIV has a nice chat with James Arnold Taylor as they talk about the holidays and James’ new book JAT 365. Fun episode and a good one for James Arnold Taylor fans. He even does an awesome Plo Koon voice.

RebelForce Radio: Episode 12.13.2013 features special guest Chris Macht (The Force Among Us, The Force Within Us) who hangs out for the entire show as they talk Star Wars, the holidays, Star Wars Christmas music and more. A nice episode to head into the holidays with.

Star Wars Action News: Episode 411 has a new batch of toy reviews for the 3-3/4″ Black Series Wave Two figures, as well as a very nice interview with Star Wars artist Christian Slade. They also cover the Star Wars Radio Drama cd’s, trading cards, discounts and more. If you’re not a collector, the Christian Slade interview is worth the listen as he talks about his Star Wars art and what it’s like being an artist and a Star Wars fan.

Star Wars Bookworms: Episode 16 features Aaron and Teresa as they review Razor’s Edge and Dark Times: Fire Carrier. Their guests for this episode include Eric Gellar (ForceCast) and William Devereux (EU Cast and We Talk Clones). As always, discussions delve into full spoilers. They also rank their favorite Star Wars books this year. Nice episode and definitely worth listening to for EU fans.

Temple Archives: Episode 79 has an interview with Kenobi author John Jackson Miller that books fans won’t want to miss. Afterwards, Jesse and Wayne plunge into their review of the book which surprisingly did not meet their expectations. Very interesting discussion of the book looking at some of the broader aspects and specific details rather than just a recap of events.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 110 is there Sam Witwer interview episode. I didn’t get a chance to listen to is last week, but I was a little surprised at how short it was. Still, it’s always cool to hear Sam talk Star Wars and I had no idea he did the voice for the Emperor in the Star Wars pinball games. Filling out the episode, the hosts talk about their favorite Star Wars characters, Bat Kid, and they have a segment covering Screen Rants what if article on who you would want to compete in the Hunger Games. Interesting to think about 16 year old Luke Skywalker going up against Buffy the Vampire Like, Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, and Hit-Girl. Fun discussion as always.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode 8 features special guest Scott Murray from Assembly of Geeks as they cover Return of the Jedi. There’s some fun discussion as they explore why it’s Scott’s favorite Star Wars film, why some fan’s didn’t like it, and why it stands the test of time. This episode also has an interview with Del Rey editor Erich Schoeneweiss, interviewed by Tricia Barr. Erich talks a little about his involvement and work on the Star Wars books, including J.W. Rinzler’s The Making of Return of the Jedi, and drops a very intriguing tidbit about the current line of Star Wars fiction, “on the fiction side, there’s tons of stuff in the works”. It’s worth noting that he was not talking about Star Wars guides as he said right now, they don’t have anything going on.
