KVR Live 2: Fandom Discourse, Honda, War Crimes

In this live, I answer questions from listeners about some complex issues, such as fandom behavior online, Ishiro Honda’s time in a command position at a comfort women camp, who really rebuilt Japan after the war, economic circumstances that led to the Japanese Economic Miracle, the disparate impact on minorities that gatekeeping has, and the level of popularity of rescinding Article 9 from the Japanese Constitution.

Episode 8: King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962) (The Japanese Economic Miracle (The Golden 60s), MITI)

Two giant monster franchises collide in this momentous blockbuster that changed everything. Listen as Brian and Nate discuss this well-produced and entertaining parody that stars one of our favorite kaiju film characters, Mr. Tako! Our related topic is the Japanese Economic Miracle, which led to Japan becoming a global economic powerhouse.

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