Season 2: Brian Scherschel chronologically, critically and academically examines a Godzilla/kaiju/tokusatsu film in each episode. Brian relates the movies to pertinent issues about Japan. Kaijuvision Radio is dedicated to discovering the Japanese National Spirit in Toho tokusatsu films.

Season 1: It's impossible to talk about Godzilla without talking about Japan, and Japan is just as unique as Godzilla, so we’ll be discussing its history and culture and how it influenced the Godzilla film franchise, which is a great way to find out more about Japan. Godzilla is the most complex and multifaceted kaiju ever created, and it means so many things to many people. Not only is Godzilla a powerful symbol of nuclear weapons and disasters, but most of these movies are an expression of the Japanese national spirit. Brian and co-host Nathan Marchand take a fascinating journey reassessing the Godzilla franchise, and since these movies are often anchored in the time they were released, they tell you what these movies are communicating about Japan.

Exceptional in every aspect.

Quite simply, the best kaiju-related podcast out there. Copious historical/cultural background and in-depth insights are given, providing even hardcore fans with new material. There's enough of the usual production history for casual fans, but this is a podcast meant to be savored by those looking to go beyond the usual production histories most genre pods concentrate on. AND they have top notch music and production values, and a release schedule that never misses. In my opinion, a must-listen for kaiju fans.
