SpeakerPODcast Ep.111 – Wonder Festival 2018 Summer

The SpeakerPODcast Crew is back from Wonder Festival 2018 Summer.

In a word, it was MOSPEADASTIC! So many Mospeada toys and kits. And of course, we’re here to talk all about it this episode. Hope you guys like your toys, because we talk about a lot of them!

First, though, we need to catch up on all the recent Macross news and announcements – and there’s a lot to discuss!

SpeakerPODcast Ep.110 – A Dog & Tony Show

Just who the hell IS Tony?

You’ve heard his voice on the podcast before, but this episode we thought we’d give him a chance to tell his Macross story.

Growing up with one foot in the US, one in Taiwan, and another in Japan, this strange 3-legged creature has a unique history with the franchise and its fandom.

We also report back from a Kazutaka Miyatake talkshow where we got to ask the designer of the SDF-1 and the Yamato about his work on Macross Delta. Oh, he also had some Gundam and Blue Submarine No.6 tales to tell too.

We were recording in a new venue with new software this episode. Hopefully the sound quality didn’t suffer too much as a result but, as always, if you have any feedback, comments or suggestions, get in touch with us via Facebook or Twitter.

Miyatake was heavily inspired by Cambodia’s Angkor Wat when designing the Protoculture ship Sigur Berrentz.

SpeakerPODcast Ep.109 – Yamato 2202 Ch.5: Purgatory

Chapter 5 of Yamato 2202 (episodes 15-18) is out and Tim Eldred joins us to catch up on the latest news, merchandise and controversy, before walking through every element in detail and help us put the dots together.
Does Chapter 5 deliver on promises that previous episodes hinted at? Join us to find out!

Despite the controversy that the unveiling of the “Galaxy” has caused among some sectors of the fan community, it actually isn’t a new design at all.

SpeakerPODcast Ep.108 – Spudger not included

It was supposed to be a quiet Sunday morning podcast but then we kinda news-jacked ourselves from the future and well… it’s complicated, okay?

What’s not complicated is the sheer amount of cool anime stuff that’s been happening recently! We visit the Cowboy Bebop cafe, watch Macross Delta Passionate Walkure in MX4D, hear a bunch of Macross 2 songs performed live in concert, discuss Sentinel’s new Mospeada Ride Armor and go to not one, but two Shoji Kawamori talkshows to hear all about the creation of Passionate Walkure and the designing of the Armored VF-31 – that’s right, it’s double the Kawamori this episode of the SpeakerPODcast!
