This year my brother has been listening
More regularly, so this year they listened to your gift guide ,as a consequence I’m looking at the new walking talking Robbie the Robot, and a cool Godzilla shirt . So all my love to Bruce ,and Dina and hail to the public service minded Monster Party. Jimm

Great!

I just started listening recently to this podcast. Fun and informative. I often find myself interacting in my car. Especially enjoyed going back and hearing the Lisa Loring episode. Keep being spooky!

Truly LOL funny & interesting

Update Nov 2020

Like so many things in 2020, this show got infected. I used to turn to it to get away from current events and politics (for which there is plenty of sources and few places to take a break).

As of earlier this year, I had to stop listening, as the injection, as I found the sudden injection of politics, quite jarring.

I salute their right to do it. And for those who don’t mind, these guys can still be entertaining and interesting. But as a long term listener (I think it’s at least 8 years, I have been listening. But it might be longer. It might go back to 2010 when I got my first iPhone) who never missed this show, and it was my total favorite, I have to say goodbye and good luck to the Monster Party crew. And take off a few stars.

Update Feb 2018

Now my favorite podcast of all the ones I subscribe and listen to (How Did This Get Made is a close second).

I go into withdrawal in-between episode release dates. Have to go back and re-listen to old episodes.

But guess what? These have great re-listenability.

Great special guests, great nerdy geeky topics for fans of monster movies, horror, sci-fi, comic books, etc. And I love the fact that they are long!

Very addictive podcast.

My highest recommendation

[Original review below]

This has rapidly entered into my top 3 favorite podcasts (& I have about 150 favorites!).

The regulars are great, their special guests are very interesting people with cool stories, and the discussions are lively, funny, and both informed & informative (unlike some other monster podcasts which shall remain nameless here).

The Planet of the Apes Episode is worth the price of admission alone.

Highly recommended.
