04.25.2021: Godzilla vs Kong Daikaiju Discussion livestream!!

Only a movie of this magnitude could bring the crew back for one more daikaiju discussion – we are talking GODZILLA VS KONG and we did it LIVE! Kyle, Martin, Jeff, Sean, Dave, Adam and Charlie connected for a giant chat about the fourth Legendary Monsterverse film.

The format we used for the podcast didn’t exactly work for the live discussion – so we asked live viewers in the chat for their “bite size” thoughts during the episode!

This episode includes the astounding GODZILLA VS KONG trailer mashup by “Up from the Depths” includes footage from this new movie against the soundtrack from the 1963 trailer audio~ make sure to go give that a like on his channel!


Kaiju Con-Line

Mark your calendars, Monster Kids! Due to the cancellation of conventions and festivals around the globe, several dedicated daikaiju fans have joined forces to create a new event for the monster masses.

KAIJU CON-LINE is a free “virtual” event being held on July 11th & 12th, the same weekend that would have hosted the annual gathering of Godzilla fanatics in Chicago; once that cancellation was announced, a clawful of motivated monster fiends converged to form this online convention that kaiju enthusiasts from around the world can enjoy from the comfort of their own home.

The Kaiju Con-Line website will act as a hub to connect those fans to kaiju-centric activities, including the virtual show floor with a curated list of kaiju sellers, video programming including a monstrous series of panels and presentations broadcast live all weekend. The Artist Alley gallery will dazzle attendees with beautiful monster imagery – and if you like what you see from a particular creator, make sure to check out their web store and stream schedule for live art demos. Additional galleries have been curated by our kaiju cosplay team, kaiju model kit builders, kaiju toy photographers – the list goes on because more fun features are being added every day until the event kicks off on the morning of July 11th. And as a tribute to the Festival that will be missed, we have a special video retrospective streaming all weekend and a massive photo gallery of memories from that convention.

Our goal is to bring the kaiju convention to you! Please see more details on the Kaiju Con-line website at www.kaijuconline.com and we look forward to sharing this experience with you!

12.14.2019: Operation Final Kaijucast

The Kaijucast Finale features nothing but Kyle and his cohosts – like almost all of them!

This final mission will decide the fate of the human race… this is Operation Final Kaijucast!

Welcome to a bittersweet episode release: the final episode of the Kaijucast.

For this finale, I wanted as many cohosts as possible to get an one last opportunity to interact and say goodbye (or ja mataa) to our listeners.

There’s not a lot of Godzilla chatter in this episode, just a bunch of my favorite nerds talking about the podcast and what it’s been like to be part of this experience; this qualifies as a Yak Attack, but I’ve bleeped the few instances where we might have dipped into the “explicit” category. Now everyone can listen!

I want to thank the cohosts, those that listened to the episode live and every single person who has supported the Kaijucast in one form or another over the past ten years.

Live from Tokyo’s Godzilla Festival celebration, Kyle and his FanVasion crew talk about the event!

Wow – Tokyo knows how to throw a Godzilla celebration!

Today, I spent the day in Tokyo’s Ginza district at Godzilla Square with my group trip’s kaiju freaks (aka the Kaijucast FanVasion) and we had a great time! The stage shows were fun, the programming was great, the exclusives were super cool – I wish I could have tried some of the food truck-style food but phew! those lines were mega long!
