Episode 5: Godzilla Raids Again (1955)

Brian and Nate discuss the first Godzilla sequel, the last black and white Godzilla movie, and the first monster fight. While it’s not meant to be an epic film, it does have some strengths and significance. For our related topic, we discuss the Japanese Self Defense Forces (JSDF) and their role in the Godzilla franchise.
