GamerTagRadio has posted Episode #105 of their weekly podcast, which includes a phone interview with Arena's excutive producer, Sean Penney. They cover a wide range of topics over their fifteen minutes on the game. The interviewers are very familiar with Gaia Industries, and they comment on the Wing Commander concept art that they saw during the recent Street Trace NYC event. Sean talks about how Electronic Arts ended up choosing that particular developer to work with, and he goes into quite a bit of detail on Arena's maps, modes, achievements, social interaction, Wing Commander lore and more. GTR's original podcast post is available here. The Wing Commander bit starts about 20 minutes in, or you can listen to it here (12.2 meg MP3).
