It will be a two-for-one podcast panel at G-Fest this year!
I’ll be hosting a panel with Taylor Hensley fromGiant Monster Messages. The panel will be recorded on video like last time, and YouTube is the first place to look for that once it’s done. Subscribe to YouTube to make sure you get the notification.
I’ll also make an appearance at the panel for the Godzilla anime trilogy.
It’ll be a very special convention, and I’m looking forward to meeting more listeners.
The convention will again be held at the 4-star (4-star?!) Crowne Plaza O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois.
I must say this interview is an immensely impressive accomplishment of film appreciation!
At G-Fest XXV, Nate and Brian recorded an interview with Daniel DiManna of the Godzilla Novelization Project. His goal is to complete novelizations of every Japanese Godzilla movie. We discuss putting oneself in the minds of the many great characters in the movies, which films will be the most challenging to novelize, and what other challenges emerge when undertaking this long-term project. We had an enjoyable time and you will too when you listen to this.
At G-Fest XXV, Brian and Nate interviewed kaiju author John LeMay. His latest book is called “Terror of the Lost Tokusatsu Films!”. We address a few lost Godzilla films, his research process, why some of these lost films didn’t get made, and how some elements of these films could still end up in newer movies. Some titles we discuss include “Bride of Godzilla”, “Batman Meets Godzilla”, “Tokyo S.O.S.: Godzilla’s Suicide Strategy”, and “Godzilla: Legend of the Asuka Fortress.” Check out all of John’s books on his Amazon site here.
