Pacific Rim Part Two – Mecha!

In the lead up to the premiere of PACIFIC RIM, the team here at the Unreliable Sources Podcast has taken it upon ourselves to build you a helpful primer as to the major themes of that movie. Those being: kaiju and mecha.

We dealt with the former part of that pair last week, and this week we’re tackling the biggest and smashiest robots in all of mecha.

Please let us know what you thought about this episode by leaving us a comment or filling out the handy-dandy form over on the right side of the page.
