We still have about a couple of months to go before Guillermo del Toro’s robots vs. monsters flick Pacific Rim comes to theaters on early July, so maybe now might be a good time to introduce you guys to Kyle Yount’s show called Kaijucast, a podcast dedicated to Godzilla and the rest of his fellow rubber-suited foes.
But before I continue, some of you might be asking, “Why the Pacific Rim reference? Why not Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla reboot on 2014?” And the answer to that is, “Because that’s still about more than a year from now, plain and simple, but you raised a pretty good point nonetheless.” Now that that’s out of the way…
Kaijucast is a program where hardcore Godzilla fan Kyle shares everything that he loves about the franchise such as his favorite music and audio clips from the film, and news reports. There’s also the standard podcast banter and occasional guest interviews. It runs for about an hour, sometimes two, and a new episode is released twice a month.
In this featured episode which aired on March 17, Kyle interviews notable veteran actor Akira Takarada, a Godzilla co-star and a legend in the landscape of giant monsters, during last year’s G-Fest panel. Also featured are some of soundtracks from the films.
In summary, if you love giant monsters, especially if it’s Godzilla, then you’re gonna enjoy listening to Kyle’s Kaijucast.
