Episode 177 :: Godzilla – 60th Anniversary Special
Like a rock ‘n’ roll granddad, Godzilla is over the hill but ain’t gonna hesitate to crack jaws in a cultural relevance bar brawl. The King of All Monsters is still a pop culture behemoth even at the big 6-0, and in this episode we celebrate his nuclear legacy.
Nerdy Show hosts Cap, Kay, Hex, and Tony are joined by community member and kaiju expert, BigBadShadowMan to discuss Godzilla’s history, various incarnations, and review the new Godzilla film. Will thunder thigh Godzilla make a twerking video? Why does our episode art feature the 1998 Godzilla dressed up as Fran Drescher in The Nanny? And most importantly – Does the big lizard’s return to Western cinema measure up to our hopes and dreams; or will he experience another crushing defeat at the hands of American movie makers? Only one way to find out!
Special thanks to BigBad, who stacked 4 Microsodes together to create this full-length episode! Episode art by The Drawfriends – aka Kay and Tony.
