Get the salt ready because we are gonna be getting up close and personal with Namegon, the giant space slug from Ultra Q. Yeah, we’re gonna talk all about him in this episode as well as review episode 3 of Ultra Q which features our favorite gargantuan gastropod. It’s all here in the third episode of The Ultraman Podcast.
Hey folks, I finally recorded and uploaded episode 2 of The Ultraman Podcast earlier today. This time out I talk about the origins of Ultra Q and I also talk a little bit about the 60s “Kaiju Boom” in which the program emerged. Special thanks to listener Chris Clark for sending along a comment about the previous two episodes! The Ultraman Podcast Episode 2
Hey everyone it finally happened! The Ultraman Podcast is up and running after an agonizing month of prep and discussion. Well, I go for broke and aim to give you the goods witn episode one and whoa! What are we going to talk about for the first round? I’ll recap what it was like being an Ultra Fan in 1980s New England, a time when kaiju stuff was obscure and hard to come by. Yeah! No internet, no VHS tapes or reruns of Ultraman or his sundry brothers. Anti Japanese backlash due to trade bullcrap. Yeah, it was a bummer for a burgeoning Ultrafan circa 1984 America. But things began to change with the release of Godzilla 1985 in US theaters, the Monster King ushered in a new albiet muted era of kaiju fandom and…well.. just listen to the episode and feel free to leave a comment here! Episode 1 of The Ultraman Podcast
