This Is Rad!

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome podcasters Eric Grubbs ("Do You Know Who You Are?") and Hope Harrell ("The Macabrecast") to talk about progressive rock, better known as prog rock, or even better known as that super wanky, shreddy guitar music Kyle hates. As a drummer, Eric defends prog rock and discusses the origins of this controversial genre which sought to do more technically with the 2-3 minute pop song. Burnside is pro prog, Kyle is skeptical and once again Natalie doesn't believe any of these band names are actually real. This episode is sponsored by Loot Crate.
