A giant robot power hour discussing mechs across media, their stories, and why we love them. Friends Alice, Brian, and Niko talk through mech design, catchphrases, pilots making good life choices, transhumanism, literal cockpits, semantics, and child soldiers. From anime to books to tabletop roleplaying games, join us as we ask and answer one of life’s most crucial questions: how cool are the mechs? We also subject ourselves to the mortal folly of trivia games!
