Episode 00: "Day of the Info Dump-ster" (Introduction to The Power Trip Podcast)


A journey of 30 seasons begins with a single episode. Michael Hamilton (Kaiju Weekly, The Kaiju Groupie Podcast) and Nathan Marchand (The Monster Island Film Vault, Henshin Men) begin their “power trip” (see what we did there?) through the Power Rangers franchise by introducing themselves, the show’s format, and the goals of the podcast...

Episode 01: Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers (Season 1)


After a few false starts (as discussed in episode 0), lightning strikes! Five “teenagers with attitude” (and one more later) are recruited by an interdimensional wizard to battle a space witch bent on world domination. (Of course!) This season lays the groundwork for everything that follows: the tropes, the Zords, the campiness, and more. No matter how many actors have been Rangers and villains, whenever the franchise is rebooted, filmmakers use these iconic characters from season one...

Episode 02: Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers (Season 2)


We have reached peak Power Rangers—at least according to Michael, because he likes low-hanging fruit named Lord Zedd. :P Joking aside, Nathan does agree that the first third of this season of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers has tremendous high points, but then the combined powers of moms and the almighty dollar wrecked it. Zedd is one of the most terrifying villains in the franchise (did Toei ever wish they could use him in a Sentai?)...

Episode 03: Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: The Movie


The Power Rangers “go, go” to the movies! Michael and Nathan discuss the Teenagers with Attitude’s first big screen outing, which was a HUGE pop culture event. Some might even say the franchise went downhill from here, but that’s debatable. This movie takes place in its own little universe, so it has no ties to the show aside from the characters and actors...

Lightning Round #1: Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers Eps. 113-115 – ‘A Friend in Need’ | The Power Trip x Henshin Men


It's henshin time! In a special bonus episode, The Power Trip joins forces with Henshin Men! Yes, in a crossover of many firsts, Michael and Nathan are joined by their co-host in kamen (ba-dum-tsh!), Travis, from their fellow Kaiju Ramen Network podcast, Henshin Men...

Episode 05: Power Rangers Zeo


Michael and Nathan get to the first season that was radically different in more ways than one: Power Rangers Zeo. Saban took one step closer to embracing the Super Sentai formula by changing costumes, Zords, and villains! It was a paradigm shift that felt like an earthquake, but in the end, the franchise was STRONGER THAN BEFORE. With Tanya joining the team and Machine Empire usurping the Moon Crew’s claim on Earth, this season is all about displacement, both for the characters and the audience...

Episode 06 - Turbo: A Power Rangers / Power Rangers Turbo


If Nathan was a Power Ranger monster-of-the-week, his name would be “Rant Master.” Michael gets earfuls of it this week when they discuss the infamous double whammy of Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie and Power Rangers Turbo. Michael tries to counter Nathan…by raving about Divatox’s corset...

Episode 07: Power Rangers In Space


The rumors of a three-hour PowerPoint (ba-dum-tsh) presentation were untrue—it’s 2.5 hours. Like Nathan said in the previous episode, Power Rangers Turbo broke the franchise’s leg so Power Rangers In Space could put it in a splint, run, and then break the splint while sprinting. In fact, the franchise flies higher than ever before—and it inspires the “professor” side of Nathan to come out and educate Michael...
