02.10.2018: Kyle-san the Kaiju Otaku Salaryman

Kyle recaps some of his recent adventures to and in Tokyo!

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, A tale of a fateful trip, That started from this rainy port aboard this Airbus A319!

That’s right, this episode is all about my trip to Japan last month. I was there for work, but found plenty of time outside of office hours to pop around the city, finding all sorts of kaiju goodness. I actually piggybacked this recording with the last Daikaiju Discussion (for Godzilla vs Gigan), so I had a captive audience: Clancy, Gretchen and Rachel are on hand to help me not sound like a crazy person… crazier than the average kaiju fiend in the land of giant monsters. Tune in if you’re keen to hear about said adventures!

Additionally, we have things to share below (and at the beginning of the show)!

MUSICAL MONSTROSITIES:
1.┬áPreparations For Operation ‘Burial’ by Akira Ifukube from Ostinato (1986)
