John LeMay's newest book - Terror of the Lost Tokusatsu Films: From the Files of The Big Book of Japanese Giant Monster Movies - is out now, and John is on Monster Kid Radio this week to tell Derek (and you) all about it! John and Derek discuss the book, John's background with these kinds of movies, and a few other things along the way. They also play a round of the Classic Five. Plus, Brenda returns to help with a healthy does of Feedback, and somewhere along the way, Derek talks about Monster Bash (because, really, when is he NOT talking about Monster Bash!).

Monster Kid Radio #369 - Mark Pedersen and Santo and Dracula's Treasure


René Cardona's 1969 film Santo and Dracula's Treasure, or Santo en El tesoro de Drácula, is the movie on deck this week, but Derek isn't going to tackle this movie alone. He's joined by the man behind Dr. Tongue's - Mark Pedersen. Mark is a toy collector and toy shop owner, and he loves his luchador monster movies as much as, if not more, than Derek, and you're going to hear all about it in this week's episode of Monster Kid Radio. Along the way, Mark plays a round of the Classic Five, he and Derek discover they have another mutual sub-genre-specific love, and Derek reveals the one place he keeps his vinyl monster toys. Plus Michael Dodd's Vault of Monster Collectibles!

Monster Kid Radio #368 - Frank Schildiner and The Champions of Justice


Call it Los campeones justicieros. Call it The Champions of Justice. Whatever you call Federico Curiel's film, just make sure you call it a fun time, because that's what you'll hear in this week's episode of Monster Kid Radio. Author Frank Schildiner returns to the show to kick off 2018's Lucha de Mayo as he and Derek talk about this idea to bring together a group of remarkable people, to see if they could become something more, to see if they could work together when we needed them to to fight the battles we never could. In this case, we need an assembled force of luchadors to fight the evil Dr. Marius Zarkoff in this 1971 film obviously set in a shared cinematic universe. Along the way, Derek (gently) picks Frank's brain about how he researches the period-specific details for his books, they play the Classic Five, and for some reason, 1979's The Frisco Kid (dir. Robert Aldrich) comes up. Also, we have another installment of Michael Dodd's Vault of Monster Collectibles, and listener feedback with Brenda.
