Godzilla week continues! KPBS Arts & Culture Reporter and noted Cinema Junkie Beth Accomando got together a bunch of Godzilla fans to react to the new Godzilla 2014 film, as well as to ruminate on the legacy of the King of the Monsters! This is the full version of her radio piece that aired on KPBS San Diego on 5/15. Joining Beth and myself is Chris Mowry, the writer of the regular ongoing comic series Godzilla: Rulers of Earth and Ramie Tateishi, Assistant professor of English Lit and Film Studies at National University, and a contributor to Monster Island Resort.
Beth has been a force to be reckoned with, not only contributing to this show, but also to giving a platform to genre work in a mainstream news outlet like KPBS and NPR. And hey, she also edited all the “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes” sequels! Her radio pieces can be either 3-4 minutes for shorter pieces or 12-14 minutes for longer pieces, but she is usually left with having to cut key content from her interviews or reviews. Occasionally, she chooses Monster Island Resort to be a home for this content. Thanks, Beth! You can check out her written review of Godzilla 2014 HERE.
