The Weekly Stuff Podcast #162 – Godzilla Retrospective Spectacular! Plus Persona 5, Paper Mario Color Splash, and more!
It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link.
Before we dive into one of the longest-promised topics in the history of this podcast, we follow up on our cliffhanger from last week, as Sean reveals he’s been playing Persona 5 in Japanese, and shares some (spoiler-free) thoughts on a game we are all very excited for. Meanwhile, Jonathan offers his first impressions of the surprisingly wonderful Paper Mario: Color Splash for the Wii U, and Sean and Jonathan go through some recent movie, gaming, and TV news items. And for our main topic, we finally offer an in-depth retrospective of the beloved Godzilla franchise, just in time for the American release of Shin Godzilla, the first new film in the franchise from Toho in 12 years. Sean, a lifelong Godzilla aficionado, counts down all 28 films in the franchise – yes, you read that right, all 28 – as we explore the history of one of cinema’s most enduring icons.
