Tyler and Lamar welcome voice actor, graphic designer and writer Mike Dent. Dent, a former Rangercast co-host, also created the podcast R5 Central and hosted Otaku USA's Friday ACE Podcast for a spell. More recently, he's had a hand in tokusatsu projects for Shout! Factory and Discotek Media. We ask him about his origin story and get him to explain the staying power of Space Sheriff Gavan.

Also, we discuss toy news and leaks, the current whereabouts of a key Masked Rider prop and mourn the passing of the legendary anison singer Ichiro Mizuki. Mizuki had an association with Super Sentai dating back to JAKQ Dengekitai.
