RebelForce Radio launched another sister podcast, which will be released once a month and feature hosts Tricia Barr of the FangirlBlog.com and Teresa Delgado of JediNews.co.uk. The show will present the female voices of Star Wars fandom, including spotlight interviews and fangirl perspectives.
The inaugural episode dropped last week, which featured an engaging interview with voice actress Catherine Taber – best known as the voice of Padme from The Clone Wars.
The first episode also featured a well balanced discussion of Boba Fett’s popularity and use in the films and Expanded Universe. This conversation earned my full respect and made me an official fan of their podcast, who will now become a loyal listener.
Barr and Delgado debated on whether the use of Boba Fett is exhausted in Star Wars, speculating the merit of both sides of the argument. What I appreciated is their respect for both perspectives, instead of attacking opposing views rather than insulting Boba Fett’s fan base.
The hosts speak clearly and are very articulate. There are no annoying speech habits, they don’t try to force jokes or tire the audience by repeating the same talking points over and over. I highly recommend this podcast. Barr and Delgado are endearing and you’ll find yourself looking up their other online projects following your first listen.
Between Fangirls Going Rogue and Radio 1138, Jason and Jimmy are putting together a strong, diverse stable of podcasts that I’m sure will provide comprehensive coverage and speculation of the Star Wars Universe going into a new era of the galaxy far, far away.
