We made it.

After four years and 99 episodes, we've finally arrived at episode #100. We're thrilled to bring you this very special edition of the Seibertron.com Twincast / Podcast. Join your host Counterpunch as he brings along special pals John Barber from IDW Publishing, freelance author Jim Sorenson, and our comics editor Va'al for unique segments you're sure to want to catch. Although, first you'll have to listen to your regular cast Jon 3.0, Razorclaw0000, yours truly Scotty P, and Seibertron, who pops in for a few as well.

Episode #100 "#100 in a Four-Episode Limited Series" is available directly and in our RSS Feed and should appear on iTunes and Stitcher Radio within 24 to 48 hours of when you see this news post.

(3:26)
After a brief intro, we dig in to the storied history of the Twincast / Podcast! And yes, you get the actual history this time, not a made up story.

There is still no Generations version of us


(14:45)
Ever want to go behind the scenes of the show? You may second guess that desire after hearing us chat about our setups and where we record from. Here's a hint: it's not in a professional studio.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
We heard that "Honest Trailers" is done from here too



(18:15)
Bragging Rights pop up out of nowhere! What kind of haul has Razorclaw0000 ready to Never Forgive? You can listen, but I'll just spoil it with an image here anyways.

You can call me Senpai


(21:35)
We do sneak in some actual news in this episode! New Masterpieces are on the way including Exhaust and Star Saber. Listen in and these exciting new toys make their way into our hearts and... lungs? Did we chain smoke our way through this one? You'll have to tune in to find out.

Come to where the flavor is.


(28:00)
From Counterpunches to debates to drunk convention appearances, there have been a lot of amazing Twincast moments over the years. The cast recollects their favorite times, so listen in to find out what we've enjoyed over the years, and be sure to share your favorite Twincast moments in the discussion thread below!

I was at a bar too, in Raleigh, sad that I wasn't in Orlando


(43:30)
Believe it or not (and I'm sure you probably do believe it), the show that you get to listen to doesn't always have a smooth road it travels down to get there. Can you imagine us messing up? We certainly can, and we take a look back at some of our "oops" moments over the years. Learn more than you ever wanted to about the how and why behind the "how" and "why?" moments you've heard.

At least Hasbro makes transformation bloopers too. Wait, why won't that image work? Damn.


(53:53)
It's been a long journey, so we make sure to take a different look back in time. Which member of the cast has been on the site the longest? What awesome rockin' topics were all the rage back on August 12, 2010? Click the link to look back, and listen to the latest show to hear us realize that we're getting old. Oh, and don't tell, but this is technically our 101st episode :-$

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
This was once the new hotness


And now I toss it across the pond to our resident King of Comics, Va'al, who stayed up extra late to help us welcome some extra special guests! Take it away Va'al!

(1:05:26)
I'm taking it, ScottyP, takin' it to places where we've never been before: the realm of IDW, and its senior editor John Barber! And John doesn't only work with transforming robots, he has full tapestries of serial killings comics, where GI Joe shows up more than once too.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"


We talked about a number of things with Barber, and you can hear them all if you follow the time mark above, but here's a rundown for you:

Ever wondered how long he's been a part of the franchise? He was there when the comics started. He was there with the cartoons and even with the toys - which still pile-up on his desk regularly, it seems - all long before he became a writer (with the movie stuff) and editor at IDW Publishing.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
Not Barber's desk


Since then, he's been doin' it with style on Robots in Disguise, which has hit a new peak recently with issue #32, and we talked about how he sees Prowl, Thundercracker and what the near future will hold for the cast, especially Galvatron, the Headmasters and a possible Game of Thrones echo.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
Did it work?


With that in mind, we moved even further into the future, and what Combiner Wars might bring us, between six issues of 'the series formerly known as RID' and the returning Windblade series. And Razorclaw000 thinks we get a major scoop about Megastator.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
So close


I also manage to sneak in a question about the highly divisive, but otherwise extremely popular, collaboration with Tom Scioli on Transformers vs G.I. Joe, and just how much fun they have working on it.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
FUN


And to round off, we went back in RID's history to two of the best received issues pre-Dark Cybertron, to look at Soundwave's new spin, and how the cassettes got their voices in the comics.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
Insult-bot: Origins?


If you haven't been reading Robots in Disguise this far, make sure to head to ComiXology or your local comics shop to pick up the Phase Two, Volume 1, any of the trades, or single monthly issues!

And thanks again to John Barber for joining us for this special occasion.


(2:25:54)
We weren't finished! The man of a thousand voices jON3.0 brought along a special guest, the curator/archivist/bounty hunter with a hat - Jim Sorenson! We talked hats, conventions, the Complete Allspark Almanac, past work that he's done for IDW like the Art of Prime and how he juggles it all.

Then we looked at what's yet to come, specifically another co-authored book with Bill Forster, a celebration of 30 years of Transformers toys and their packaging art: Transformers Legacy. This will truly be a big, chunky piece of history.

Transformers News: Twincast / Podcast Episode #100 "#100 In a Four-Episode Limited Series"
A BIG book


And as we than Jim for also joining us to celebrate 100 episodes, here is where I launch the laptop back across the ocean, hoping ScottyP will get it to finish writing. Ready, Scott?

-----

Got it! Thanks for the write-up Va'al, and thanks again to everyone that's listened over the years, plus everyone that's dropped into the show! We're only going to get bigger and better from here, so stay tuned over the next four years on the road to episode 200 for fun Transformers talk and more, much more, than meets the ear.

Don't forget, the show only gets better if you tell us how. Drop us a review on iTunes and be sure to tell us what you love, what you hate, and what you want to hear!

Not on the show to give your take? Probably not, so don't forget to keep the discussion going on the Seibertron.com Energon Pub Forums by simply replying to this post!

Got a question for the Twincast? We take all of them, we just don't take them all seriously! Leave a question in the Ask the Twincast thread and, if it makes the cut, it may get read and answered on the show.

hi counterpunch um for issue/podcast no. 101 um is there a way you guys could discuss series or characters that are falling into obscurity Like the 2000 RID series and i believe that the UT is slowly falling into that category and i would like to mention that 2014 is the 9th, 10th(!), and 11th anniversaries of Cybertron Energon and Armada In this order . this is my comment :michaelbay:

The "Stereo good; mono bad." Twincast was a pretty memorable gaff. I forget the number but, to the uninitiated, listening via earphones resulted in different voices coming from left or right speakers.

The muting mistake episode, (most downloaded/listened to?) made me think poorly of jON3.0 until ScottyP fessed up. The belching made me laugh until it made me sick. #bucketofbeer
Thanks, Scotty, by the way, for the scoop on where to pick up that Browning KO.
Thanks to all involved for everything while I'm at it.
Kudos!

Great guests. Va'al on for this episode was an especially tasty treat considering John and Jim. It was cool to have somebody totally into the comics there to ask the right questions.

Yeah.
