Legendary’s Godzilla has come and gone, and it has made a decent amount of money. Enough to warrant two sequels. It also raised a few scientific questions. Questions about his massive size, sexual selection, EMPs, and the MUTO life cycle. In this episode I review some of those questions, and I also talk to Kyle Yount of the Kaijucast about his Kickstarter campaign.
In this episode I look at how Godzilla spends his winters. In King Kong Vs. Godzilla, Godzilla emerges from his icy tomb and walks straight into a simian smackdown. But how long was he in there? And what does it take for a giant reptile, and regular sized reptiles, to survive during hibernation. Also I’ll tell you how much I loved the new Godzilla (OMG I LOVED IT SO MUCH!!!) and about mushrooms that eat radioactivity for breakfast. Also I have an animated bee and a robot playing the drums. Best. Episode. Ever.
How many hot-air balloons do you need to float a 50 million pound drunk gorilla? Does Godzilla migrate? And why do his fins glow blue? All the answers can be found within 1962′s King Kong Vs. Godzilla! This episode marks the first episode of a new era for the podcast. It’s time to take this show to the next level (whatever that means). More content, more episodes, still in bite size episodes!
One of my favorite things about Pacific Rim has been all the science article coming out about ‘The Science Of Pacific Rim’, in this episode I highlight some of these articles and try to describe how the world of Pacific Rim might actually work. Also, I complain some more about 2 brained dinosaurs and share some listener feedback.
