Taylor ruins segues and Joshua keeps asking him questions in this episode of the 1957 film, 20 Million Miles to Earth. Why is the ocean always involved? Are any of the Major Generals good models? Those questions and many more are brought up and possibly answered in this episode where we also discuss the sin of existing. Enjoy!

Giant Monster Messages: KRONOS (1957)

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”.
