02.12.2011: Awesome People Talk Godzilla & BONUS Phil Hester Interview!

Heather and Justin join the Kaijucast this month

This month, we return with another of the popular casual/non-fan interviews with my friends Heather & Justin!

Konnichiwa, loyal listeners and welcome to episode 27 of the Kaijucast (which can be downloaded right here). It seems that at least once a year, I invite some casual/non-fans to the show in order to get their reaction to Kaiju films and this is the episode to do that. Sure it’s a poorly veiled loophole that I’ve found in order to include these very good friends of mine to the Daikaiju Discussion screenings, but it was really fun to have them on the show.

The guests are Heather Brask & Justin Turner. Oh, and in addition to the interview with these guys, I also have a bonus interview with comic book artist Phil Hester – so make sure you stick around for that one too! Not a lot of news this month, so since Justin has a podcast (see the link below) about gaming, I included him in the news section where we talk about the only news I could find.  The local happening section of the podcast kind of takes over that whole news section and proves, once again, that Portland just has too much cool stuff going on. Of course there are loads of links below for that stuff, so here’s the music that I play in this episode:


1. “Tokyo Tower Showdown 1” by Akira Ifukube from King Kong Escapes (1967)
2. “Miyarabi’s Prayer” by Masaru Sato from Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974)
3. “Godzilla X Meganula” by Michiru Oshima from Godzilla X Megaguirus (2000)
4. “Murai & Akiko: The Matango Attack” by Sadao Bekku from Matango (1963)
5. “Mystery Science Theater 3000 Love Theme” by Man Or Astro-man? from Destroy All Astromen!
6. “Godzilla In Danger” by Akira Ifukube from Terror Of MechaGodzilla (1975)
7. “Pricing Mothra’s Egg” audio clip from Mothra vs Godzilla (1964)
