king_kong_vs_godzilla_ii_by_ldn_rdnt-d7b8xenThis episode I do something a little different, no Kaiju science.  Instead I had writer Jase Short on to talk about some of the deeper meanings and themes of kaiju movies.  We had a fantastic conversation and Jase almost made sound smrt.

Make sure to check out his blog, it includes some of the more thoughtful commentaries on the giant monster genre I’ve ever read.  Jase’s can be found here: The Ansible
