The RoboCast

Apr 25 2021 • 58 mins

In this podcast, I am joined by Steve, the American Killjoy and World of Woodrow as we look at the Classic Robot Wars episode revolving around the Challenge Belt in the Extreme Series 2. You may notice a similar theme to BattleBots: Bounty Hunters! For this podcast, we are joined by Andrew Marchant, captain of Team Tornado, who held the Challenge Belt at the time (and still do to this day!).

Be sure to check us out on iTunes and Spotify too! Simply search “The RoboCast” on either of those platforms, and listen to us on the go!

Let us know what your thoughts on the Challenge Belt episode of Robot Wars in the comments, and some of Andrew’s stories!! How much would we love to see the former champ running around again at a RoboNerd style event?
