Note: 15 years after its release, the first American remake of Godzilla has become an embarrassment to the legacy of the beloved, King of the Monsters. Helping to make sense of this commercial mess, Witney returns to the podcast to discuss inaccurate science, redundant characters, laughable marketing and the history of the Godzilla franchise.
