DNA Podcast 107 – Dinosaur Movies

In this episode, Rob and Don are joined by their friend Chad to talk about their common childhood passion – dinosaur movies! From The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms to Jurassic Park, the trio explore the history of dinosaurs on film and how they’ve been portrayed through the decades. Along the way, they discover there are really only six kinds of dinosaur films, and delve into the many techniques people have used to bring dinosaurs to life over the years – some more successful than others! All this, and giant robot apes, are waiting for you in this episode of The Department of Nerdly Affairs.
