Welcome back to another episode of Ball Busters: the podcast about lethal ladies, scream queens, man-mangling martial artists, and ferocious female freedom fighters from every corner of the world.

Today, we are joined by Gretchen Brooks to discuss a trio of 60s Japanese horror movies including an influential masterpiece, an underrated gem, and a hallucinogenic fairy tale. If you’re a fan of Kaiju and Japanese monster movies, you might recognize Gretchen from the KaijuCast. Gretchen has also worked with the H.P.L. Film Festival, the Portland Horror Film Festival and as a co-host of the up and coming podcast Gretchen and Gwen Watch Movies.
