Where we're going, we don't need rads… This week Kyle, Matthew and Natalie sit down with comedian Caitlin Durante (The Bechdel Cast) to talk about her favorite movie thrillogy: Back to the Future! But first, in traditional "This Is Rad!" fashion, they talk about Titanic for a while and discuss the ill-fated movie Titanic 2, which shockingly does exist. They unpack what makes Back to the Future so great, why Michael J. Fox is a national treasure, and why Crispin Glover is so dang weird. Natalie is obsessed with the Eric Stoltz movie that never was, Kyle defends Back to the Future 2, Caitilin unpacks the "Briff Conundrum," and yes, Part 3 is... addressed. So fire up your flux capacitors, accelerate to 88 miles per hour and travel BACK! IN! TIME! This episode is sponsored by Loot Crate. Give yourself a geeky gift this month!
