With each new episode of Rooster Teeth's animated series RWBY, Beacon Broadcast is here to break down everything that happened. In a weekly freeform discussion with a rotating cast, we talk about our favourite moments, where we think the show is going, and, hey, what was up with that thing that happened three weeks ago that nobody ever mentioned again? Yep, that's the kind of nerds we are. Join us every Monday while RWBY is airing.
RWBY 8×14 – The Saddest Episode
I’ll be real with you: this week’s podcast is just the sounds of sobbing for forty-four minutes and thirty-five seconds straight. Penny is dead, Team RWBY has fallen into The Void, and Atlas and Mantle are under water. I blame you, Ironwood. Join Artemis, Blue, Daft, and Joe as they mourn. Let’s all be sad together!
RWBY 8×13 – This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things
Dammit Cinder! Episode 12 was so happy. Why couldn’t you have just let Ruby’s plan succeed? This week, Tyler, John and Joe discuss the ways in which Cinder, Watts, and Neo screw everybody over. Ironwood goes on a Schnee shooting spree, and Harriet continues to be the character that enrages Joe the most.
RWBY 8×12 – Hugs Are Warm
This week, Daft, Joe, John, and Tyler discuss the staff of creation, untangle the logistical Christmas lights that made up Ruby’s wish, and insult Ironwood and Harriet a bunch (god I can’t stand her).
And just a quick PSA: Do. Not. Fall.
RWBY 8×11 – What Ever Happened to Summer Rose?
This week, Grant, Tyler, John, and Joe discuss how IRONWOOD ALMOST FREAKING SHOT MARROW! In more feels-y news, Ruby and Yang talk about the Grimm details about Summer Rose, Ren and Nora are back together (but not together together), and Emerald begrudgingly admits to being good. Also, people say the word “risk” a lot.
RWBY 8×10 – Dic(k)tator Move
We find ourselves in a dark room lit only by a single spotlight. In it stands a figure. Is he man? Is he machine? I don’t know, but he’s certainly riding that villain train all the way to dic(k)tator station. This week, Daft, Joe, John, and Tyler watch in horror as Ironwood really commits to his career as an a*****e and threatens to destroy Mantle for funsies, while the gang finally reunites, Watts is a badass, and Neo trolls Cinder.
RWBY 8×08 + 8×09: In the Belly of the Beast
This week, we’re discussing chapters 8 and 9. Blake and Ruby bond, Whitley and Willow do a good, and Penny fights Penny. Also, Hazel and Emerald leave Salem, Oscar and Ozpin grow closer, and the Atlas military plans to blow up a whale.
Your unpaid radio interns this week are Joe, Tyler, and John.
Goofy hosts but good RWBY Discussion
I really enjoy listening to this podcast. The hosts are goofy but have great discussions around the series.
