My favorite Transformers podcast is not actually a Transformers podcast

I want to quickly mention that Greg and Rob over at the Paunch Stevenson show have been hitting it out of the park lately with the segments they've been doing on Transformers. They're not a dedicated Transformers-only podcast which means they have a different and I think fresher perspective than the other hardcore Transformer shows. I like to joke that what makes them different from Transformer podcasters is Greg and Rob actually like Transformers. Of recent shows I'd say episode 134 where they discuss Rhino's and Shout Factory's DVD releases and episode 137 where they slow down Unicron's lines from the 1986 movie are my favorites.

Esteban, thanks for the praise! Two little corrections: Greg and I talk about Unicron's voice in episode 137 (not 138), and we actually sped his voice up to normal human speed (it was slowed down in Transformers: The Movie).

And you're right, we do like the original Transformers series. Some of those episodes were really good, plus the characters had charisma and, of course, excellent voices.

I hope you get to listen to our Revenge of the Fallen review soon, without your MP3 player malfunctioning. I imagine it'll be a while before we see another movie that stupid, worthless, and boring.

I hope everything is going great for you and your family in Florida!

Whoops! I got it. I'll correct that in the post so people who click go to the right show. (I'm leaving my other mistake in because it makes me look like I don't pay attention, which I think reads funny.)

I'm going to have to use the computer to sit down and listen to your review of the movie. That's what I get for thinking the transforming MP3 player Soundwave was a practical piece of audio equipment instead of a gimmicky toy.

Two things:
#1. As I said before, I'm updating my site again if you want to check it out.

#2. Did you see GI Joe? If so, what did you think?

Hey good luck with the site. I'm not really into the new Hasbro stuff but if you go to a convention or run across any non-Transfomer robots I'll read all about it.

I have no interest in the new GI Joe movie and I will never see it.
