Episode 21: The Return of Godzilla (1984) (The Cold War, KAL Flight 007, Three Mile Island Accident)

We begin our two-month journey into the Heisei series of Godzilla movies. Listen as Brian and Nate elevate this unforgettable and well-made film by explaining how Japan was in the middle of the Cold War tension of the early 80s. Our related topics are the acceleration of the Cold War, NATO’s Able Archer exercise, Korean Air Lines Flight 007, and the Three Mile Island Nuclear Accident.

We’d like to send a shout-out to our patrons Kyoei Toshi and Sean Stiff for pledging at the Kaiju Visionary level. Thank you for your support! We really appreciate it.
