I have been enjoying the podcasts sins the very beginning, but I had a long hiatus and been back tracing the episodes that i missed. So I know this comment comes late, but I had to share my say after listening to this episode.
I regret not having been able to contribute to the question about a 24-styled anime. Especially after hearing you guys dissing a 24-styled one year war, while overlooking a very obvious element from the one year war which, in my opinion, would be perfectly suited for a 24-styled adaptation: Operation British.
Maybe it would overlap with Stardust Memory, but at least it wouldn't have Nina Purpleton
