For episode #30, Aaron and Kris turn their attention to that mean, green (actually charcoal-grey), Tokyo-stomping machine: Godzilla! Aaron and Kris review Godzilla’s his first-ever appearance in the Japanese film GOJIRA (1954) and then compare it to its 1956 American edit starring Raymond Burr: GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS. Along the way, Aaron explains his newfound addiction to giant monster movies, and he and Kris discuss their love of kaiju mayhem.
After exploring the devastation Godzilla wages upon Tokyo, in Earth and Beyond your hosts take a brief stop-over in Picher, Oklahoma for another type of urban devastation. Picher, you see, is a modern-day ghost town virtually wiped out and deemed a hazardous waste zone by the US government. If not giant atomic monsters, what could devastate a whole community?
