Nate and I are creating wholly original content: Original structure, original thoughts, original opinions, original videos, original music, original art, and an original approach. We utilized our innate strengths and experiences, and after two years of planning, Kaijuvision Radio was born.
We’re fast and efficient.
We covered the entire Godzilla franchise in just 8½ months, releasing 37 weekly episodes in a row, each one with a scenic background video. The grand total came to over 50 hours of content. No one has ever done this. But it wasn’t exhausting – it was exhilarating!
Moreover, we paid attention to what we were doing the entire time.
After all, speed is nothing if you aren’t doing it right. We created our part one film descriptions in order to properly introduce the movies and compare them to each other. We structured our discussions to avoid rambling. Most importantly, we defined the goals of the podcast so clearly that they became second nature: Raise the bar of the conversation about the movies, analyze Japanese historical and cultural inputs, embrace how Godzilla changes over time, and track relevant Japanese issues as we progress. Through this unique approach, we were able to demonstrate that there’s so much more to Godzilla than meets the eye in an informative and entertaining way.
The kaiju fandom is a small yet very special group. We have met some amazing people, and our patrons have been superb. We are thankful for all of their assistance.
Our panel at G-Fest will be recorded as an episode to be released in July. Then we will continue our film journey in September, with one movie episode per month plus more interesting content in store. If you like what we’re doing, check out our Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/kaijuvision.

Our new reward tier introduced today is:

Donations go towards the merchandise, advertising, equipment, website, and data transfer fees that keep our podcast running.
To really see what we’re made of, we strongly recommend Episode 37, our Shin Godzilla episode. We hope it will change the way the fandom discusses this incredible movie.
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.
