Birthed from the demise of the Kaiju Apostle Podcast, “Saved by the Belial” reunites co-hosts Chris and David to discuss the universe’s greatest superhero: Ultraman! With only three minutes to discuss each episode, will they be able to say what they need before the color timer runs out? Will Chris grow sick of Ultraman? And why is Ginga no Uta an absolute bop? Stay tuned to find out! Episodes are released biweekly. Official podcast partner of the Tokusatsu Network: http://www.tokusatsunetwork.com.

As the Belial Buds™ finish their bloody marathon with the last batch of Ultraseven adventures, they ask themselves, “Where have these episodes been all their lives?” From crucifixions to Veggie Tales to Herman Melville, there are no topics left untouched this time around.
This is what you get when Rob from Tokyo Lives joins the Belial Buds: Mustaches. Motorcycles. Mullets. Monsters. ultraMEN. Too MANY jokes about buttholes. M's the word. Also, I just came up with Belial Buds. This needs to be a shirt.
It only took roughly twenty episode descriptions for me to lose my creative steam. Maybe before this one goes live, I’ll come back to it. Maybe not. But hey! We’re talking about the King Joe two parter!
With Kyle being such a WHOge Dr. Who fan, it only made sense to talk about the series and have him try to sell David on trying out the franchise again. Conclusion: it worked. Also on the table: Godzilla vs. Kong, MCU (surprise!), and what it’s like being the geriatric editor for Nerdist.
In a world…with countless Ultra hosts…one man reigns supreme… His name? Dan Moroboshi. More importantly, Kyle Anderson, Nerdist’s senior editor, joins us for a rip-roaring good time. Seriously, we had a blast, and we hope you do as well.

Nothing like having recording a podcast episode where by the time it releases, you (David) prove yourself wrong several times: The Lord of the Ring books ARE better than the movies and yes, I did rush out to see Black Widow. Also, we were right: Loki is great.
Topics discussed: confusing Gridman with Ultraman; Dragon Ball GT; Ultraman critiques; toku burnout; the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe; and pitching the Monsters vs...
It's time to leave the (TV) Land of Light and dive into the world of Marvel’s Rise of Ultraman! Discussing this new take on the giant of light with us is Alex of Monsters vs. Men, and as always, hijinks ensue...
Wait, it's time to finish Ginga S already?! That's what happens when there are only sixteen episodes, I suppose. So the question is: does the show stick its landing, or do we find ourselves demanding (more)? And Chris watches his first Ultra-movie!
