You are listening to Wave Motion Cast! A podcast featuring the cast of this website!  In our second episode, we are joined by the incomparable Lauren Orsini to chat about all things Gundam.  We cover our favorite shows and mecha designs, discuss how we got into the franchise, and even share a few revealing, personal anecdotes!

***NOTE*** There is a brief audio issue around 01:09:00 that lasts for about a minute.  Apologies for that, but it was baked into the recording, and we didn’t want to cut that wonderful bit out of the show.

Jimmy:  [The Sumo] was originally gonna be the Turn A, and then they said it wasn’t cool enough.

Lauren:  So they gave it the mustache???  “We’re looking for something cool for the kids.”

Jimmy:  I think…I think mustaches are really cool too…

Lauren:  Pick something that looks like Winston Churchill.

Jimmy:  That’s cool, though!

Lauren:  That’s what the kids like.

Doc:  Jimmy.  Have you seen…Gun X Sword?

Jimmy:  No, I have not.

CJ:  Agh, don’t.

Doc:  If you like mustaches-

Lauren: “If you like mustaches”

Doc:  -watch the first two episodes.

Jimmy:  I do like mustaches.

Doc:  I will leave it at that.

Lauren:  Will you make me an entire list of Gundam shows to watch if I like mustaches?

  1. Great cast, thank you so much! I’m actually not very much into Gundam, having only watched the recent TV version of Unicorn which was, frankly, not the best place to get started. But after this podcast I feel like checking out some of the other installments. I’ve planned to watch the original ’79 series for a while now, and I think that’s a good place to start for me. Turn A Gundam being steampunkt/dieselpunk really makes me want to check that one out, too.
