The Underbase Podcast

The Combiner Wars step up a gear with Transformers issue 40! Join Gruffy, Andrew and career substitute host Adam as they readthrough and discuss the issue. More chat than usual, but that's due to several script/format choices that make this one of the best issues from Barber yet!
We also talk politics and Gruffy tries to bait a bearded Canadian artist. A few audio issues, hopefully not too bad.
The review of the next part of Combiner Wars (Windblade issue 2) will be up this weekend.
