In Greg's absence, Shambhavi Kadam, Shamus Kelley and Blacky Shepherd help Marc review Episode 6 from Season 2 of Voltron Legendary Defender: The Ark of Taujeer. Blacky designs a Let's Voltron Podcast T-Shirt that will launch the TeePublic.com site for podcast merchandise.
Shambhavi Kadam is a huge Voltron fan we met at WonderCon, who also worked with a team at Boeing to put Wifi on the International Space Station (ISS). She's a geek at heart and a really good artist, as seen by these portraits of Steven Yeun as Keith and Kimberly Brooks as Allura, below. The Allura portrait was inspired by our interview with Kimberly Brooks, the voice of Allura, from a podcast last year. You can catch Shambhavi on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Pinterest, and Snapchat where she is known as @kadamster.
Shamus Kelley is a writer for Den of Geek, which is a news and reviews website for TV, Movies, Games and Comics. Shamus has had the pleasure of writing and interviewing about Voltron Legendary Defender and has been out of the closet for years with his love for Vehicle Voltron. He currently hosts a Robotech Podcast (RoboSkull Podcast: A Robotech Podcast) and has been heavily involved with Power Rangers podcasts as well.

We also are proud to announce that Han Cholo will be at San Diego Comic-Con this July at Booth #2616 and they have a special exclusive Voltron Legendary Defender Lions Enamel Pin set available for sale at their booth. This SDCC 2017 exclusive is limited to 50 sets, and it's the only way you can get the Voltron head pin. The Lion pins will be sold individually at the booth, but the Voltron pin is only available in the 50 exclusive sets. Once they're gone, they're gone, so if you are going to SDCC, make sure you visit the Han Cholo Booth early!
