The premiere kaiju podcast

By Nate "Big Red" Marchand - Dec 05 2019
Read more
Kyle and company weren’t the first kaiju podcast, but they’re the longest-running of all of them. Most, if not all, other giant monster podcasts owe something to Kaijucast. While the show is wrapping up by the end of 2019, what’s left it a backlog of episodes that include film discussions, interviews, and fandom talk. Not many podcasts can beat that variety. The rotating roster of guest hosts adds to that variety and provides lots of great flavor with their quirky personalities. What more can I say? This is /the/ kaiju podcast.
