Midwestronauts is finally happening!

Hello there to all our friends, listeners, supporters, and even people who don't particularly care for us! Bob and I are happy to reveal the specifics of Retronauts' first live event for 2016 — especially as it's one people have been requesting for quite a while. We will be conducting a live podcast panel at this year's Midwest Gaming Classic. If you happen to be in Milwaukee on Saturday April 9 at 2 p.m., you should totally come and attend our panel.

Our topic for this event will actually see us covering some previously trodden ground: We'll be discussing the 30th anniversary of the Sega Master System (which launched in 1986 in the U.S.). The Master System episode from the original run of Retronauts is one that people still complain about, nearly a decade on, so hopefully this will put those complaints to rest. To help guarantee that we'll do the topic justice, Bob and I are flying in two Master System experts to host the panel with us. How's that for dedication?

Our special guests for MGC will be (1) Greg Sewart, former Electronic Gaming Monthly contributor, SEGA fanatic, and host of the comprehensive SEGA Genesis chronogaming video series Generation 16, and (2) Dylan Cornelius, who has played through and critiqued very nearly the entire Master System library on his site Sega Does. You'd be hard-pressed to find two bigger experts than them! As for Bob and myself... well, we're gonna be cramming Master System games pretty hard over the coming weeks.

So that's that. We'll see you in a few weeks in Milwaukee!
