SpeakerPODcast EP.131 – Keep calm and watch Macross!

There’s been a lot of Macross news and rumors as of late, some good, some seemingly less so. What’s it all mean? This episode we sit down to talk all about it as well as catch up on all the recent happenings and events. Adrian, international-man-of-action that he is, drops by AX2019, San Diego Comicon and somehow still has time to find out the truth behind “Genesis Breakers Mospeada 2083″… or does he?

We also meet Hiroki “Ishtar” Kasahara, find out what Isamu Dyson is up to in the year 2067, discover the must-have Macross fanzine of the year (if not the decade), and experience Uta Macross in VR. All this and more in the latest episode of the SpeakerPODcast!

Cassie, friend of the podcast, was recently featured on Japanese TV – full report next episode!

Just what exactly IS “Genesis Breakers Mospeada 2083”?
