About Us

Every episode we watch one giant monster movie featuring characters like Godzilla, King Kong, or Gamera and talk about it over our morning coffee. We talk about what we loved, what we hated, what was ridiculous, and what was awesome.

Latest Episodes

KCB 7: Rodan (1956)

In this episode we watched Rodan (1956) in all its bizarre, genre-bending glory; from dragonfly larvae with jangly booties to UFO dinosaurs. Lee has some unfortunate ideas about how Rodan stays in the air while Sarah discusses her favorite types of microscopes and contemplates a $160 coffee maker. Plus: our cats go completely insane, Christmas drinks at Japanese Starbucks, and the incredible true story of how we ended up the only sober passengers of a Karaoke Party Boat in Fukuoka.

KCB Sandemonium Special: Godzilla (1998)

A wild Live Episode appears! In this very special episode of Kaiju Coffee Break: Live, we’re joined by Bronwyn “Beans” Toth, host of the wildly popular book podcast ‘Trading Pages,’ to watch Godzilla (1998), the first wholly American-made Godzilla movie. Beans teaches us a racial slur, Lee talks a lot about fish, and Sarah explains parthogenesis and pregnancy tests. Plus: radiation makes earthworms ‘do it’, French-style vs American-style coffee, and the shockingly great lineup of other movies made in 1998. Featured Roaster: Death Wish Coffee Co, Cauldron Aged Pumpkin Coffee

KCB 6: King Kong Vs. Godzilla (1962/63)

Godzilla, bane of Japan, and King Kong, the eighth wonder of the world, duke it out in this 1962 kaiju movie that was subsequently recut, redubbed, and released in 1963 in nearly unrecognizable form for American audiences. Because we LOVE you, dear listeners, we watched both versions and we’re here to process our trauma with you. Lee spills the tea about the legal battle between Ichiro Honda and Merian C Cooper over ownership of Kong while Sarah contemplates the hypnotic power of bongo solos. Plus: shocking revelations about the fate of the octopi used for filming, King Kong gets “Up’ed”, more Japanese puns, and Sarah has even less chill than usual. Featured Roaster: None. We got Dutch Bros. Being alive is exhausting. It’s fine.

KCB 5: Son of Kong (1933)

1933: nine months have passed since King Kong was released and now, a new kaiju is on the horizon, Son of Kong. We watched all 69 (nice) minutes of it and now we’re pumped up on pumpkin spice and here to discuss it. Sarah lectures on the physics of quicksand while Lee investigates the source of that strange whistling noise. Also: pumpkin bread is bad for dogs, load bearing treasure, Sarah has a gene that makes her hate cold brew, and the “boaty things” we plan to do when we become “boat bums”.

KCB 4: King Kong (1933)

He’s the one, the only, the eighth wonder of the world, America’s own kaiju, Kong. We survived watching the 1933 classic King Kong so you don’t have to, so tune in as we discuss the state of Black-led filmmaking in the early 20th century, the secret origin of the Loch Ness monster, and how Max Steiner revolutionized movie scoring. Plus; we got a coffee subscription box, Vudu is the worst, and the world’s hastiest built river raft.

KCB 3: Jurassic Park (Abridged)

We recorded a patreon episode… and then decided it was too good to not share at least some of it with everyone! So join us for this very special bonus episode of Kaiju Coffee Break in which we watch Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park (1993) and talk feathered dinosaurs, cloning science of the 90’s, practical effects, and why we think it counts as a kaiju movie. Plus: Lee is bad at Tomb Raider, a monumental coffee curse, and why Sarah doesn’t get out of bed for less than $1,000 an hour.

KCB 2: Godzilla Raids Again (1955)

This week, we dug into Godzilla Raids Again (1955), the sequel to the unexpected smash hit Godzilla (1954) that was made in only six months. Can it live up to the hype of the first? You’ll have to tune in to find out! Lee talks commercial fish spotting from planes while Sarah waxes poetic about weak-ankled prisoners and wants to cancel the entire city of Osaka. Plus: Lee’s sick Grand Theft Auto stunts, a terrible joke about a former Alaskan senator, pickle nitpicking, and some dinosaur biology.

KCB 1: Godzilla (1954)

For our first episode, we do a deep dive into the one that started it all: Ishirō Honda's 1954 cinematic classic, Godzilla. Lee geeks out on the costumes and fantastic musical score while Sarah explains the real science behind Dr Serizawa's amazing Oxygen Destroyer weapon and the little known history of US nuclear testing in the Bikini Atoll. Plus, Lee is bad at battleship, post-COVID vacation planning, and that time we kind of accidentally broke into a Godzilla-themed hotel in Shinjuku.
