    BattleBots 7 Rookie Preview: Ripperoni Captain Anna Zolnikov and Driver Fred Moore

    This week on the podcast, we’re continuing our coverage of the BattleBots 7 rookies with the Italian side of the Team Omega family — Ripperoni! This pizza-themed robot features a neat little innovation: A counter-rotating flywheel, designed to reduce the amount of gyro the bot experiences when it turns. We catch up with NHRL regulars Anna Zolnikov and Fred Moore, who got valuable experience with the 30-pound version of Ripperoni ahead of BattleBots.

Such a good podcast!

I’ve been listening for a while, and this is definitely the BEST combat robot podcast out there, and the news section is really useful.

Behind the Bots- Yes!

I loved watching Battlebots and went looking for podcasts about it.
This one is great! Adds a lot of depth to the show, and gives listeners a doorway to NHRL and other ‘real’ robot combat competitions. Want the hard, cold truth? This isn’t a slick radio show with trained voices and all the ‘uh’s edited out. This is people who love and participate in robot combat telling you more than you thought there was to know about it. Enjoy!
