- Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974) feat. Christian Gonzalez (Seaguns)
Despite the worst technical difficulties the apostles have faced, here's a new episode, with a special guest to boot! Thanks to Christian Gonzalez (Seaguns) for joining the show to discuss the difference between soothsaying and biblical prophecy, how Miyarabi's prayer echoes the cries of Israel, and Dr. Miyajima's ethical dilemmas. Oh, and David may have come up with the ultimate meme.....1h 11m | Oct 26, 2020
- Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973) feat. Ben Wahrman
Joining the podcast this episode is Ben Warhman, frequent contributor to the Star Wars website, Eleven-ThirtyEight, to discuss Toho's attempt to cash-in on the Ultraman success: Godzilla vs. Megalon.

- Godzilla vs. Gigan (1972) feat. Danny DiManna of the Godzilla Novelization Project
Let's be honest: who even reads podcast descriptions these days? If you're a Godzilla fan, then surely you know about Godzilla vs. Gigan, right? But what you might not know is Danny DiManna, the brains behind the Godzilla Novelization Project, is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to this movie and the series as a whole. Join the apostles as they pick Danny's brain and discuss the continuing shift in themes and tones in the Godzilla franchise, along with the concept of peacekeeping vs peacemaking.

From the depths of the Dark Gaseous Nebula of the Orion emerges Matt Parmley of the Kaiju Transmissions podcast to discuss the unique, and controversial, film, Godzilla vs. Hedorah. Of course Chris, David, and Matt touch on the main theme of the movie, but they also branch out to discuss the ethics of creation care and how the message holds up almost five decades later. Also, this episode marks one year of the podcast, which means...well, you'll have to listen to find out!

- Space Amoeba (1970)
Stop me if you've heard this one before. A cuttlefish, a crab, and a matamata turtle walk into a bar.........Ahem. Anyway, this episode is a doozy, with Chris and David figuring out what to make of 1970's Space Amoeba. It's a film that seems like it has something it wants to say, but does it succeed? Or does it sink deep in the ocean, along seaweed? If you don't want to listen to the Ultraman Z/Community discussion, fast-forward to 14:39. Also, make sure to check out our friend Jake's great article on the movie here: https://www.somethingghoulish.com/giant-monsters-of-the-south-seas-fifty-years-of-space-amoeba/1h 13m | Aug 31, 2020
- All Monsters Attack (1969) feat. Eric Neely of Monsters vs Men
As the apostles go from Destroy All Monsters to All Monsters Attack, talk about tonal whiplash! However, joining them on this journey is Eric Neely from the Monsters vs. Men podcast to tackle critiques regarding capitalism, the myth of redemptive violence, and settling the most important question of all time: who handles stock footage better, Gamera and the Space Women, or All Monsters Attack? THEir aNswERs MAY sUrpRiSe YoU!1h 19m | Aug 17, 2020
- Destroy All Monsters (1968)
At last, the Avengers of Godzilla movies. Before you write off the episode because of that description, Chris and David discuss why that comparison might actually be accurate, along with gatekeeping in the fandom and the shift in tone, and meaning, in the Godzilla series. Kaijuvengers...assemble!1h 16m | Aug 3, 2020
- King Kong Escapes (1967) feat. Alex Cornett of Monsters vs Men
When you have a movie with a giant ape and his mechanical clone, it only makes sense to invite Alex of Monsters vs. Men to monkey around. Despite the reputation the film has, however, do Chris, David, and Alex find much to discuss, or does Dr. Who and Crew just make our hosts want to cuss? (Worst. Rhyme. Ever.) Watch King Kong Escapes on Archive.org here.1h 18m | Jul 20, 2020
- Son of Godzilla (1967)
It's the movie Chris has been waiting for: Son of Godzilla, Minilla's infamous introduction into the Godzilla universe. The apostles find a lot to discuss this time around, between Godzilla's parenting skills, creation care and eschatology, along with the philosophical concept of contractualism. Time to go back to the island, Jack Shephard!

- Ebirah, Horror of the Deep (1966)
Ahoy, mateys! Come onboard with Chris and David as they set sail to the Devil's Island to discuss the 1966 Godzilla film, Ebirah, Horror of the Deep. Does Jun Fukuda's shift in tone work for the duo, or do they walk away from this one crabbier than ever? Grab your swimsuit and towels, because this episode is a beach!1h 12m | Jun 22, 2020
- War of the Gargantuas (1966)
Gargantuas, Gadamer, Yu-Gi-Oh-My! David and Chris finally get to one of the most famous kaiju films of all time: War of the Gargantuas. Not ones to shy away from controversy, they discuss the hype surrounding the movie, along with the application of the Cain and Abel motif to the two giant monsters, not to mention getting into detail about their respective analytical approaches to these monster flicks. Chris also does his best (see: worst) puns yet!1h 12m | Jun 15, 2020
- Building a Bridge - Fae
In light of everything happening in the United States, Chris and David felt one last episode of Building a Bridge was needed, and they invited Fae to join the conversation regarding racism, both in the Godzilla fandom and the country at large. David also had the chance to conduct an interview with another Godzilla fan, Joe, and that can be found at their website here: http://thekaijuapostle.com/show/building-a-bridge-4-fae

- Frankenstein Conquers the World (1965) feat. Michael Hamilton of the Kaiju Groupie Podcast
They know, trust us- the doctor is really Frankenstein, not the monster. But in this episode, David and Chris get into more serious matters, such as: what does it mean to be a human being? How do we determine quality of life? And why is there such thing as kaiju rule 34? Joining the duo this week is Michael Hamilton, also known as the Kaiju Groupie. Make sure to check out the podcast he helps out with, Kaiju Weekly. Also, shout out to Erik for providing the new outro music. His music can be listened to and purchased here.

- The One With the Pandemic Update
Well, look whose back. Back again. TKAP's back...and...well...I'm not sure if you should tell a friend about this one. Before they dive back into the Toho Kaiju Cinematic Universe (TKCU?), David and Chris discuss some of the media they consumed during the COVID-19 pandemic, along with a reflection on the final season of the Clone Wars AND thoughts on the fandom's reaction regarding Godzilla Vs. Kong's potential delay once more. Huge thank you to Eric Fain for the backing music during the spoiler warning. You can check out his project Bahroot here.1h 5m | May 11, 2020
This isn't the return you were looking for. Instead of the usual fare, David spends the episode catching everyone up to speed (rather clumsily, he might add) regarding the birth of his daughter and the ordeal he and his family have gone through in the NICU. The story is not without hope, though. Jesus is on the throne, forever and always. Thank you for your prayers and support. Truly.38m | Mar 27, 2020
