SpeakerPODcast EP.39 – SDF-1 Macross Designer Kazutaka Miyatake-on a BOAT!

Late last year, the City of Yokosuka hosted an exhibit of works by SDF-1 Macross designer Kazutaka Miyatake….on a boat!

The SpeakerPODcast Crew donned their Powered Suits and headed straight to the Memorial Ship MIKASA to learn about world-building, the difference between reality and realism in mecha design, eccentric creators, and see a LOT of Eureka 7.
