Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

501stCast: Episode 93 covers the Star Wars Podcasting Awards, fan films, troop reports, trooping with Weird Al, and The Force Awakens Blu-ray releases.

Aggressive Negotiations: Issue 007 covers their favorite Jedi with an excellent character analysis on Jedi like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Aayla Secura, Kanan, Luke and some great observations. If you’re looking for a discussion driven Star Wars show with great sound quality and good hosts, give this one a try.

Beyond the Vote: Episode 001 is hosted by Riley Blanton (Star Wars Report) and Scott Ryfun (My Star Wars Story). It’s an interesting podcast as Riley and Scott talk politics, politicians and voters as they cover the US presidential race. They’re both conservative and provide some great commentary not just on politics, but some of the factors around the politics. In this episode they start with how they came to their own political beliefs, they talk about Hilary, Bernie and Trump. They tackle the idea of voting for a personality rather than an ideology. They also talk a little about immigration. It’s interesting episode, and if you’re into politics, I recommend giving this one a listen. I really enjoyed it. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 215 features a great interview with Star Wars author Daniel Wallace. They talk to Dan about his work on the Star Wars essential guides, trivial pursuit, and his early days on the internet as well as his thoughts on why Superman is more relatable than Batman, and why the Spider Man rogues gallery is better than Batman’s. It’s a fun interview covering a lot of topics and offering some cool insight. If you’re a fan of Dan’s work, be sure to check this one out.

Brews and Blasters: Episode #43 is all over the place as usual, but a whole lot of fun as well. They bring up the interesting fact that “always two there are” is hardly ever right. They talk about Dooku being the cultured Sith, where we might have seen the Grand Inquisitor before, Hondo and the Star Wars Rebels episode “Brothers of the Broken Horn”, where are Wolf and Gregor?, is Jar Jar a Sith?, and they even touch on Battlefront: Twilight Company (don’t worry, no spoilers) and Captain Phasma toys. There’s a little bit of everything and a few laughs in between.

Comic Book Noob: Green Arrow episode covers the origins of the character and his left wing liberal nature, his parallels to Batman, the relation between the show and the comic, the character’s sense of humor, the characters of Felicity and Diggle, the team up between Green Lantern and Green Arrow, the lazarus pit, Constantine, and reading recommendations. If you’re looking to learn more about the Green Arrow and his comic book background, this is a great episode to check out. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
