We are reminded to always aim for the antennae and to take advantage of opportunities in this episode for the 1957 film The Deadly Mantis. Taylor continues to not get jokes and we go over some listener feedback.
Giant Monster Messages: The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957)
How fun is DDT? What are we worth? Should we believe in something bigger than ourselves? We are forced to see the world from a new perspective in this episode for the 1957 film The Incredible Shrinking Man.
We discuss how normal sized dinosaurs don’t count, Greek Mythology is weird, and Joshua makes jokes that Taylor doesn’t get in our episode for the 1957 film KRONOS. We question humanities consumption while also throwing in some Calvin in Hobbes, Star Trek, and have another round of “Ask a scientist”.
We do something a little different in this episode for the 1957 film, Attack of the Crab Monsters. It’s our first commentary! We learn that we should always be afraid and to never assume someone, or something, is pregnant. We also ask if a crab can communicate through metal under water and are giant crabs the Martian Manhunter in disguise?
We meet a doctor who thinks he is a pickup artist and learn that we shouldn’t drink venom in our episode for the 1955 film Tarantula. We also discuss the horrible lab practices and how life never goes as planned.
We have painful puns, fireworks, more questions for a scientist in our episode for the 1955 film It came From Beneath The Sea. We also discuss the difference between Protagonist and a Hero, the idea of women in the 50s, and accepting changes to move forward.
