In this podcast, we cover the tour of DreamWorks Animation Studios in Glendale, CA, where Marc and his wife Kim talked to the people who work on Voltron Legendary Defender, who share their work and sincere thanks to the fans of the show. Marc and Kim also went to WonderCon and Marc shares his thoughts on Voltron fans, cosplay, artists, and the Lion Forge Comics signing with Tim Hedrick. And Greg introduces a brand new regular segment for the podcast called Retro Voltron.

Retro Voltron Segment
Thanks to Greg, we are introducing a brand new segment which will now be in every podcast, called Retro Voltron. We appreciate everything Voltron, and although Voltron Legendary Defender is the freshest Voltron out there (100% on Rotten Tomatoes), we want to share something from Days of Long Ago or maybe not so long ago, with respect to Voltron. This segment will share our thoughts on something cool and interesting from the Voltron Universe.
In this podcast, we talk about how different the first episode of Beast King GoLion is compared to that episode edited for Voltron: Defender of the Universe when it first aired in 1984. The stories for the Japanese GoLion are vastly different from the American Voltron, despite using most of the same animation. Hear Greg and Marc's thoughts about these in this podcast.
As Always, Thanks for Listening! Let's Voltron!!
