Cromtober 2016, Part One: A Monstrous Conversation, featuring Justin Stewart and Kentucky Kaiju!

Er. Welcome back, Cromrades! It's time for CROMTOBER! We've been accosted by witches, faced down the ghosts of our pulp author heroes, but this year we have GIANT MONSTERS to content with! Our friend Justin Stewart dropped by the show. You might remember him from the excellent first season episode, "Conan vs Sequential Art!" These days, Justin leads an army of monstrous creatures drawn forth from the depths of his and Tressina Bowling's minds. The result of this collaboration is Kentucky Kaiju, a field guide of sorts, featuring depictions and descriptions of giant monsters which can be found across the length and breadth of the Bluegrass State. Descriptions of the beasts were provided by Shawn Pryor, who undoubtedly put himself in great peril by getting close enough to the kaiju to document their natural histories and provide descriptions of their habits. We get into Kentucky Kaiju at about the 15 minute mark.
