If you haven’t visited Jedi News today, then glide over and read the John Morton interview posted earlier this afternoon. The virtual sit-down was conducted with the Elstree Base of the Rebel Legion and – as pretty much everything coming from Bespin Boba – is engaging, fun and filled with trivia.

Morton talks about how he got involved with the Star Wars franchise; his first meeting with George Lucas and how Star Wars is still a big part of his life. He also announced he’ll start blogging regularly for Jedi News starting in the New Year – which is good news for those of us who’ve loved his features at the Official Star Wars Blog.

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.

You can download Fangirls Going Rogue for free on iTunes or at Shotglassdigital.com. Also, follow these ladies on Twitter @FGGoingRogue and at Fangirlsgoingrogue.tumblr.com.

Shotglass Digital launched a new companion podcast to its flagship, RebelForce Radio, which partners with Jedi News correspondents James Burns and Mark Newbold. The monthly podcast, Radio 1138, will feature in-depth conversations about Star Wars fandom centered in United Kingdom and other parts of Europe – which may go over the radar of U.S. based fan communities.

Its inaugural episode features highlights from a The Making of Return of the Jedi panel recorded live in London. The Q&A event was filled with engaging stories and Star Wars trivia from author Jonathan Rinzler, who was joined by Jeremy Bulloch.

Download October’s episode for free on iTunes or at www.shotglassdigital.com to hear some great antidotes ranging from how many times Bulloch’s worn the Boba Fett armor off screen to the decision to have the bounty hunter befall the Sarlacc Pitt in ROTJ.

JediNews.com has become a comprehensive source for Star Wars rumors and news, but I’m looking forward to receiving even more supplemental information about fan events and interviews happening overseas that those of us in the U.S. may not be privy to.

This should also be a great new source of actor news. We are rich with appearances and interviews from voice actors in the states, but this show could bring us more insights from Star Wars actors who work and live across the pond.
