Monster Kid Radio #087 - Andy Camble vs. The Deadly Mantis

This week's guest host is no stranger to giant monsters. Andy Camble is the producer of the always excellent Kaiju 101 podcast, and he's joining Monster Kid Radio to talk about a non-rubber-suited monster - The Deadly Mantis (dir. Nathan Juran). How does this film compare to other big bug movies of the time? Do birds really have a skeletal system? And what is Newton's Third Law?

Also, Ray Jelinek tells Derek why he's attending the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival this year. (Apparently he survived last year's event!)
