Episode 55: The Politics of Shin Godzilla

The final word on the politics of Shin Godzilla, from the podcast that covered it best. Is Shin Godzilla a “nationalist” movie? As an international affairs graduate of the best public policy school in the country, I can say that it is not nationalistic. It’s patriotic. The 3/11 Disaster (Earthquake/Tsunami/Nuclear Meltdowns) had a big influence on the movie. Godzilla effectively IS the 3/11 disaster. If it was nationalistic, I wouldn’t like it as much. Watch me tell you what every fan should know about this incredible movie. I cover the satire, the realism, and much more! This is my first episode recorded on video, but you can still listen to the audio version just like every previous episode.

Episode 37: Shin Godzilla (2016) (2011 Great East Japan Earthquake/Tsunami/Fukushima Meltdowns)

At last, it is time. Fasten your seat belts, kaiju fans.  It’s like this movie was made for Kaijuvision Radio.  Just as I was planning a podcast emphasizing the connection between the Godzilla franchise and international affairs, this masterpiece was delivered to me on a silver platter.  This episode is our masterpiece.  After our film description, part two is my opinion on the big picture of this incredible movie.  Part three is a detailed chronological rundown of the film, and we will tie it to the events of 3/11.  Our related topics are the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear meltdowns.

This episode is dedicated to the victims of the 3/11 disaster, Plant Manager Masao Yoshida, the Fukushima 50, the U.S. service members who participated in Operation Tomodachi, U.S. Forces Japan, and the JSDF.

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