episode 252: Shin Godzilla- A 5 Year Retrospective with The Human Instrumentality Podcast!

Get ready for a real "two plus two cooperation" as we are joined by Joseph Schafer and Ian Cory (of the Evangelion podcast, the Human Instrumentality Podcast) to take a deep dive into Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi's radical, yet beloved Godzilla reboot.  Now with five years since the film's release, we thought there would be nobody better to join us for this retrospective look back.  We discuss how Anno and Higuchi's previous work has been informed by the kaiju genre, the film's production history and unused concepts, political messaging and real life situations referenced in the film, and the impact the film has had on the Godzilla franchise.  How does the film fare five years later?  Join us and find out!
