Godzilla: King of the Monster Film Franchise

You’ve seen Godzilla in movies, video games, anime series, and cartoons; worn his image on your t-shirt and lunch box; and played with his action figures. The reptilian monster with the atomic breath is a beloved pop culture icon.

In fact, “Godzilla” is the longest continuously-running movie franchise in history, with 2024 marking its 70th anniversary.

But on what animal was Godzilla’s appearance based? How did the WW2 atomic bombing of Japan influence the original 1954 “Gojira” film? How has Godzilla changed over the centuries, in both appearance and personality? And who were some of Godzilla’s greatest enemies?

Find out all this and more in this monstrously fun episode.
