Mechanista in G – RX-78-2 Gundam

Welcome to Mechanista in G, our newest podcast. Six and Dylan are both enthusiastic about giant robots, particularly Gundam. What better way to express that love than a weekly podcast where we take a single mobile suit (the robots of Gundam) every week, and look at its design, mechanically, symbolically, and more. On this first episode, we’re tackling THE Gundam: the RX-78-2.

If you want to find us on Twitter, Dylan is @lowpolyrobot and Six is @sixdettmar. Our opening theme is the Hangar Theme from Gundam Breaker 3, and our ending theme for THIS episode is Eien ni Amuro from Mobile Suit Gundam.
