MSB is a weekly Gundam podcast for new fans, old fans, and not yet fans.

The Great Gundam Project has been going for years now, but people still insist on starting Gundam in places other than 0079, so we decided to make the first season free in order to encourage people to watch the hottest show of 1979!

Gundam Book Club is in its fourth season! Season 1 covered Gundam Sentinel. Season 2 was all about the Revival of Zeon manga created by Kazuhisa Kondo. Last season featured Gunpla and the first episode was my top 5 gunpla builds! Season 4 will look at the 1988 manga by Kazuhisa Kondo "The Dogs of War" set in UC 0092.
