Sorry for the delay on the episode, but also for the delay in this posting. Last night my server was nearly unresponsive so I was staring at my laptop screen with the most angry of late night eyes. Regardless…

Hey, it’s our daikaiju discussion for Godzilla vs. Spacegodzilla in which we talk for almost two hours about the merits and misteps of the mid-90s monster movie. I was joined by Bryan, Rachel, Martin, Sean and Charles for this viewing and subsequent chat. And due to the tardiness of this update, I’m going to leave it at that!
