Our Live Panel with Female BattleBots Captains Andrea Gellatly, Sarah Malyan, Jen Herchenroeder, Julia Chernushevich, and Lilith Specht. PLUS! A Bonus Appearance by Greg Munson!

This week on the podcast, we have a special, last-minute guest—BattleBots co-creator Greg Munson! On Monday, BattleBots announced that filming would start in October, with 57 teams competing. We try to extract as much information from Greg as possible.


Later, our panel discussion with female BattleBots captains Andrea Gellatly (Witch Doctor), Sarah Malyan (Nelly the Ellybot), Jen Herchenroeder (HiJinx), Julia Chernushevich (Ferocity) and Lilith Specht (Sporkinok)!


We filmed the panel before a live (virtual!) audience at Maker Faire Miami, and took tons of questions from fans. It was a lot of fun, and we’re looking forward to hosting more BattleBots panels in the future.
