Customer Reviews

Brian from The Blood Buddies ,

Hey I was a guest!

And had a bunch of fun. I know nothing about Kaiju but hanging out with these jabronis was super fun

I hate coming up with titles

It seems like there aren’t a lot of active Kaiju podcasts out there that make it past a few episodes, let alone ones that are listenable, but this podcast definitely has earned its positive reputation. More than the content, though, the hosts do a great job of promoting positivity and unity in the fandom, and that alone will matter more than anything in the long run. Keep it up, guys!

Unique

As a kid, no one liked these movies but me, so I never thought many people wanted to discus these classics, but now thanks to the internet (and this lovely podcast) I know there’s fans of toku like me and my father!
