Will, after months of fighting my old modem and router and spending more time re-booting the Internet than actually surfing it I finally broke down and got a new modem/router combo. That being said, I was able to listen to the podcast last night. I knew Ray Harryhausen was influential but didn't realize his 'reach' into the industry. To think we may not have had a Godzilla without there first being a Beast From 20,000 Fathoms!
Very true my friend. His films paved the way for many filmmakers and iconic effects films.
