Henshin History

Henshin History is, ostensibly, a podcast about tokusatsu and Japanese superheroes, from the beginning to now, hosted by Alexa Hollow, Sven Michel and Van Ong. With multiple years of their lives lost to tokusatsu, they hope to shed some light on what makes it so interesting and compelling--no matter how many half-baked movie crossovers, terrible year-long show-runners, or teeth-grindingly incompetent scriptwriters the genre may throw at them.
