This episode is TURTLEY radical, tubular, and mondo!!! also cowabunga

We speak with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles expert/film projectionist/good person Zach Karpinellison about his recent infatuation w the sewer-dwelling green freaks, and also revisit the 1990 TMNT film that brought the franchise to global attention.

But before that, Noah, Eliza and Zach check out the 1960s kaiju film 'Gamera, the Giant Monster'; another tale of mutant turtles, only this time it's authentically Japanese and the turtle is skyscraper-sized. Which turtle film beat the shell out of the other? Which practical effects 'turtle suit' is more effective and/or cuddly? and most importantly, what's the deal with Krang?


Zach’s recently released turtle comic saga TMNT: The Last Ronin

Noah’s subterranean terror C.H.U.D., which is also set in a sewer

Eliza’s novelty twitter account ‘wiki titles singable to TMNT themesong’
