Godzilla the showa era part 1 – Trashed Talk Podcast – Episode 65

Reading Time: 2 minutes


Trashed Talk Podcast reviews 5 of Godzilla’s films from the show era in this episode.  Listen for a lengthy breakdown of Godzilla 1954, Son of Godzilla, King Kong vs Godzilla, Destroy All Monsters, and Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla.

“The Showa series (昭和シリーズ Shōwa shirīzu?) also known as Showa era and Showa period, is a term used to identify the years between 1956 and 1989 under the reign of Japanese Emperor Hirohito”

Why do people still love the King of Monsters almost 70 years later? This is a question we ask in this episode.

Comic of the week: Godzilla the half-century year war. Featuring beautiful artwork,  a well welcomed interesting human connection to the king of the monsters, GTHCW is THE definitive Godzilla comic for fans, with many classic Godzilla foes and allies featured, and a touching story with an awesome arc to its protagonist.


Game of the week: Godzilla clash of Tokyo board game from Funko.

“In Godzilla: Tokyo Clash, you play as the Earth’s most fearsome Kaiju — Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah, and Megalon — battling for dominance as the most terrifying monster in Japan. With detailed miniatures of the legendary monsters and a modular cityscape of 3D buildings to destroy, it’s an epic battle every time you play!

In more detail, each player has their own deck of cards unique to the kaiju they control. As you throw trains and tanks at the opponents and attack them directly to cause damage, you can burn cards out of their deck, reducing their options on future turns. As you stomp through the city, you can earn energy, which can help you layout permanent enhancements to your abilities”.
