Back from our unplanned hiatus, it’s Untitled Tallgeese Podcast! Today on Gundams of Our Lives: The Wind Beneath Our Wings, we visit Space China, home of Wufei, and our hosts get into what, exactly, is going on with Chineseness in Space China. Did you know there’s an alternative universe where Wufei is from Africa? But in this universe, Gundam Wing’s main African representation is… the circus lion, because that’s right, we’re back in the circus, which is now in space. That’s the real reason we went on hiatus: faced with the prospect of releasing another episode about a Gundam circus, now force ..read more

2021 is about to leave us like Heero leaving the Sanc Kingdom the minute Relena takes her eyes off him, but before we go, your hosts are here to talk religion, make fun of Treize, and talk disastrous hookups—and we'll never be out of disastrous hookups! We're finally introduced to the dark and edgy outer senshi Gundam Epyon, which Treize has lovingly stashed away in a dark creepy mansion complete with his secret shrine dedicated to Heero Yuy figurines and photographs. Just kidding! He doesn't have a shrine! But he does have a lot of Feelings about Heero Yuy which he can't wait to share with us ..read more

We're still at Relena's School for Girls (and Two Boys!) Who Want to Craft Peace, except one girl came out here to have a good time and her idea of a good time is attacking and getting attacked. Dorothy doesn't have time for your thoughts on gender essentialism and pacifism or the battle between Bad Oz and Treize Oz. She's just here to stab Heero in a fencing duel and drive Relena straight into the middle of a mobile suit battle! Honestly, big mood. And speaking of moods, we delve deep into every one of the many vibes Duo is putting out in episode 32, from "the only pilot in a healthy heterose ..read more

EPISODE 15: The Peacecraft Institute for Girls Who Can't Craft Peace Good

Close your eyes. Imagine a beach. The sand between your toes. The sound of waves. Your eyes are shrouded in unexpectedly detailed eyelashes. Your friend sits beside you. The setting sun brings a new vibrancy to his platinum blonde hair. Two dogs run up to you. You throw a pineapple for them. You are at peace. Your name is Heero Yuy and your animation budget has just been replenished. Okay, enough of that: we have some questions. First of all, where is this beach jungle of Europe? Is total pacifism possible or is it merely schoolgirl naïveté? Why do people love war? Do freaky pointed eyebrows c ..read more

Whump. Sandalwood. Dragon plushie. Perfect soldier. "Gods!" Do these ancient codewords awaken anything in you? If so, then this episode is for you. Gundam Wing has hit its midseason recap moment, so your hosts have decided, like Treize, to hide away in a shadowy and extremely elaborate mansion of their memories—only instead of Lady Une, we have the ghost of fanfiction past. Join us as we discuss the first installment in the Road Trip arc, a famous 1x2 fanfic series by Sunhawk, revisit fanfic archives loved and lost, ponder post-Earth polytheism, and finally pay tribute to an author who devoted ..read more

EPISODE 13: High on Wing Zero Juice
Untitled Tallgeese Podcast
by Mischevious Tallgoose
1y ago
In this episode, your hosts wax philosophic on anime and politics like they're college sophomores getting high off that good, good Zero System Juice. Cathy grandstands with her unified theory of anime, Caitlin breaks down just what the glory of the losers means, Mallory threads the needle of drone warfare and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Kat asks all the important questions, like "Is Quatre psychic?" and "What kind of health benefits does OZ offer?" and "Does competency get Duo hot?" (Hint: yes, yes it does.) This is the pseudo-season finale, so we're heavy on the heavy stuff, but in our ..read more

EPISODE 12: Space is (Still) the Place

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's—Quatre in Wing Zero threatening to blow up a colony! Trowa might be horrified, but we're delighted, by the artistic flair and horror movie vibes on display anyway. Caitlin reveals that she's been moonlighting as the strategist for all the Gundam pilots; too bad no one has been getting her transmissions from the Lunar Base—except for Duo, who gives us all the fanservice we could possibly ask for in these last two episodes, from getting beat up to giving moving political speeches to finally getting his government assigned female love interest in Hilde. We rec ..read more

The wings of the tall-goose continue to flap as we brave episodes 21 and 22 of Gundam Wing. Today, we learn that Quatre has sisters—uncountable, unknowable sisters! Doctor Sisters, Lawyer Sisters, Never-Met-The-Boy-Before Sisters! Sisters sprouting from the soil, sisters flowing from the sea, sisters bursting in the air— oh, wait, sorry, that was his dad. We discuss our plans to eat the rich, represented by Quatre’s dad—but do we want to eat the rich politically or eat the rich erotically? Quatre’s battle with his father goes full Freud when we notice a central feature of Papa Space Baron’s ap ..read more

Today we follow the lives and loves of average young adults on a college campus through Gundam Wing episodes 19 and 20: Zechs Merquise has graduated from Earth High School and plans to shed his emo mask boy image with a total reinvention when he starts at Space University. He studies Mobile Suits in Classical Japanese Literature with eccentric Prof. Howard. Professor Lady Une (do NOT call her “Lady” or, worse, “Mrs. Une”) is offering her famous course on Military Propaganda this semester and everyone at S.U. is enrolled. For her advanced students, she is also teaching a seminar on The Psy ..read more

EPISODE 9: Cognitive Mobile Suit Therapy

Like your favorite danmei drama, this episode is full of death and rebirth: Zechs Merquise dies and is reborn as Milliardo Peacecraft, Heero is reborn as transfer student Duo Maxwell, and this podcast is reborn as Lagrange Colony Trap House as we skeptically evaluate the colony's response to Lady Une's political machinations. Have you missed us talking about Lady Une? Well, worry not, because for the next few episodes, we can't shut up about Lady Une, how she performs femininity in her ambassador role, if she's lost her mind, and whether or not it's all a tribute to Utena/Rose of Versailles/Hi ..read more
