    One last episode. The apostles discuss the movie that started this journey, getting into patristic theology and the need to remember rightly. Not much else to say, except thanks for making this whole experience so wonderful. We're excited for what comes next!

    The title says it all. David discusses why the show is ending, what's coming down the pipeline, and a short message about forgiveness.

    Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974) feat. Christian Gonzalez (Seaguns)

    Despite the worst technical difficulties the apostles have faced, here's a new episode, with a special guest to boot! Thanks to Christian Gonzalez (Seaguns) for joining the show to discuss the difference between soothsaying and biblical prophecy, how Miyarabi's prayer echoes the cries of Israel, and Dr. Miyajima's ethical dilemmas. Oh, and David may have come up with the ultimate meme.....

Henry the Host ,

From the Paleontology Department

This podcast is by far one of the best podcasts that explores the Showa Era of the Godzilla franchise in a though provoking way that explores the spiritual depth that can be found in this classic era of Japanese Daikaiju film making. David and Chris can bring you into a rollercoaster of laughs and deep thought that will make you look at these films in a way that doesn’t echo chamber or retread into the reviews of the Toho Landscape.

—Also there Matango episode is straight fire. Like the guest they got is one of the best guests they ever had. Hope they have more guests like that in the future of what they can get from their evolution from this show into new domains.

Great!

I listen to a few Godzilla podcasts and these guys have an awesome perspective. Very unique and a fun way to start my Mondays.

A very thoughtful monster podcast

David and Chris view these films through a very unique lens. They also dig deeeep into the movies, which leads to some really cool and thoughtful discussions. It’s also pretty hilarious at times!

All hail High Priest Minilla!
