This Is Rad!

This week, Kyle and Matthew welcome back the always wonderful Joe Kaye for a chat about a band that has taken their fair share of derision over the years, The Decembrists. Now, if you are scoffing, give the episode a listen. Joe does a FANTASTIC job explaining what makes the band one of his all time favorites. Kyle shares his journey from hating the band to being a fan of their work. It's neat sometimes when we get to do an episode where we give something a second chance. And even if you're not convinced by the end, we got some pretty good tangents too.

 

Weekly Rads:

 

Kyle and Matt – Nah, dog, for real, go watch Watchmen (and also Billy on the Street)

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome director and one third of The People's Collective Malik McCrea for a chat about making stuff. All parties involved agree that making stuff is pretty rad. Whatever your venture, the satisfaction of looking at something you made is intoxicating. But for every high high in making stuff there are also plenty of low lows. It comes with the territory. But one of the most important things you can remember is that when things are down, you can't give up because you never know what's going to happen next. There's also a lot of talk about movies and Malik shares is super cool origin story. Something a little different for you this week but we hope this episode inspires you to go make a thing, or if you are in the dregs of a project, we hope this inspires you to hang in there!

 

Weekly Rads:

 

Kyle – Blackwater Holylight (band)

 

Matthew – The Movies That Made Us (show)

 

Malik – Count on Me by Chiiild (song), If The World Was Ending by JP Saxe (song), and The Irishman (movie)

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome writer Sarah Landauer and artist Alston Novak to chat about one of the greatest films of modern cinema, 2015's Mad Max: Fury Road. Sarah and Alston are the creative team behind the digital comic “Glitch” which happens to be a story that takes place in a post apocalyptic desert wasteland. Turns out, Mad Max has had some influence on their work but not in some of the ways you might imagine. This episode is fun. Everybody nerds out pretty hard. We get into anime. We get into making comics. We get into eating lizards. It gets wild. Enjoy the ep and go support Sarah and Alston's series “Glitch” on the Macroverse app.

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome artist and comedian Andrea Guzzetta to the show for a conversation about Andrea's fascinating history with collecting bones. We learn some of the finer points of bone collecting and also learn some pretty cool art you can make out of bones and hair. We also explore the pros and cons of art school. Plus Kyle and Andrea bond over finding a creative voice that feels true even if it doesn't match the perception someone might have of you on first impression. Oh, and there is a lot of talk about life in the Midwest and how much it seems to confound Kyle's Southern California mind.

 

Fun Fact: Andrea painted Tom Goss' album cover and it's truly spectacular! It's in pre-order so go to apple music and add Tom Goss: Dead From Chicago and listen to the preview track while you take in Andrea amazing work.

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome Josh Shakespeare to the show for a conversation about what makes a rappers flow distinct. They compare the distinct stylistic flow different artists bring to their music and compare it to the way comedians tell jokes. I bet nobody saw that comparison coming! They also reminisce about the heyday of Meltdown. If you like comedy-centric episodes, this one is your jam.

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome photographer Blake Griffin to the show to chat about the Alien Franchise. Everybody involved is a fan and they really go deep on this one. From the cinematic perfection that are Alien and Aliens to the triumphs and tragedies of the comics and video games. We dig into the franchise and leave very few stones unturned. So climb into your power loader and strap in because in podcasting nobody can hear you scream. (That's not true, we hear Kyle scream on this podcast all the time. Zing!)

This week on the show the boys welcome Alexis Filth to chat about rock and roll provocateur Marilyn Manson. In a fun twist of fate we learn that while all three enjoy his music, none of them discovered him when they were in his traditional teen demographic. How do you learn to appreciate the AntiChrist Superstar as an adult? Listen and find out. Plus they explore Manson's place in the 90's/00's musical landscape, the ways he has evolved over the years, and some of the interesting side projects he's worked on over the years. So dust off your old Hot Topic shirts and come along on another Radtober adventure!

For week two of Radtober 2019 we are joined by Adam Murray for a nearly 4 hour chat about one of the greatest living directors, the one and only Guillermo del Toro! We go movie by movie and explore what makes Guillermo del Toro such a unique film maker. Are you a big fan? Then come hang out with some fellow fans and nerd out. New to del Toro? Consider this a perfect primer! Listen and if one of the movies sounds interesting go check it out. We go from his childhood in Mexico all the way through to speculating about what he might do next. Is it long? Yes. Is it awesome? Also yes. So sit down, relax, and let us do our best Dan Carlin impression as we take you on an epic journey into the dark fantasy worlds of Guillermo del Toro.

This week Kyle and Mathew welcome Kyle's longtime friend, poet Crystal Sloan. Kyle and Crystal used to work at the same school back in the day and have collaborated on many projects in the past. In the last few years Crystal has come into her own as a writer and a poet and been publishing books and traveling around doing speaking gigs with her poetry. She also knows how to hula hoop with a flaming hula hoop. Can Robert Frost do that? I didn't think so. If you dig deep talks about creative process this episode has got you covered. If you like King Crimson, that also comes up a bit. There's fun for everyone!

Today on the show Kyle and Matthew welcome Lyndon Tucker to chat about one of the great action movies of the 90's Kathryn Bigelow's Point Break. Kyle and Lyndon love this movie and Matthew just saw it for the first time hours before we recorded the episode. He was less in love. But the three have a fun and in depth conversation about the film nonetheless. They go deep breaking down each character and try to understand the strange alchemy that the movie has that makes it work. They also discuss Kathryn Bigelow and how she is one of the best living American directors. Oh, and there are some pretty solid tangents. If you've never seen the film or if you've seen it a million times, this ep is a fun celebration of a modern classic.

This week on the show we bring you another off the beaten path episode. Sometimes nobody is free Labor Day weekend to do an episode. It happens. But if you're smart, you have a conversation you had with Tom Goss while in Chicago to fall back on. Kyle and Tom sat late at night in Kyle's hotel room and ate chips and talked about comedy. If you're a stand up nerd there is a chance you might dig this episode cause Kyle and Tom explain their processes for putting together their albums. This was originally gonna be part of a bigger collection of pieces from Chicago but scheduling got kinda wacky. Things seem to be settling back into a bit more normalcy now so we should be back to some more regular episodes soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this very raw but very fun chat with Kyle and Tom!

 

Trigger Warning: Tom eats some chips.

This week on the show Kyle and Matthew welcome comedian Rachel Wolfson for a chat about cannabis. Talking cannabis is tough cause you don't wanna fall into a bunch of lame stoner cliches. Luckily Rachel makes that easy. Join the trio for a fascinating conversation about the shifting views of cannabis in modern American culture. Plus, we get pretty existential about being the generation that became adults in the wake of 9/11. Yeah, this episode gets deep. Think of it less as a giggly stoner riff sense and more like one of those good deep conversations you have with somebody when you are sitting around sharing a joint. It'll all make sense when you listen. Plus, a nice long intro where Kyle and Burnside catch up. Warning: consumption of this episode may impair your ability to think things aren't rad.

 

Weekly Rads:

 

Kyle – D23 Expo

 

Burnside – Weekly Mad: Skate 3 just had a big update. WHAT ARE YOU UP TO EA!?! WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO US!?! (Weekly rad – He saw the Beach Bum and its a fun movie!)

If you are a fan of Roast Battle you are likely familiar with the image of Josh shirtless getting the audience to chant “Battle” on the show. Kyle and Josh chat about their early open mic days and their shared adventures in crippling anxiety. They also talk about Martial Arts movies. Josh is a fan of all things nerdy and we still can't believe we haven't done this as an episode yet. (Honestly, we're still only like 75% sure we haven't done it.) But regardless, this is one of those topics that never gets old and truly we only scratch the surface in two hours so I guess it gives us an excuse to do more episodes on the topic!

Matthew – Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling (show)

And now for something slightly different. This week, Kyle is sick, two episodes got rescheduled, and we had 24 hours to get an episode recorded and posted. But at This Is Rad, we're never gonna leave you high and dry. So Kyle and Burnside sat down in Kyle's backyard and started talking about video games. They also talk about future stuff they wanna do on the podcast. If you are into any of the stuff we're thinking of doing please hit us up because we wanna keep bringing you guys new and interesting stuff because as long as you folks keep listening we're gonna work hard to bring you a quality podcast. Now, I know what you're thinking... “But how did this episode turn out to be over 2 hours long if it's just Kyle and Matt hanging out.” Oh boy, about halfway through this episode things get exciting. Kyle's Mom has a pretty crazy story about the Manson Family. And that leads to stories about dune buggies, boats, parties in the 70's, and a visit to the CIA. Seriously, this one takes some turns and we hope that you enjoy it!

Matthew – PEN15 (show)

We wrap up another Summer of Rad by sitting down with Rivers Langley for our annual backyard cook out. This year Rivers brought along some of his friends (Carter Glascock, Sam Harter, and Courtney Peterson) from the Goods From The Woods universe to join us in the consuming of several pounds of fried seafood. Rivers shares his recipes for a delicious fish fry and everyone eats so much they go a little insane. If you've ever wished more podcasts had extended riffs about Chedder Bay biscuits, your prayers have been answered. Plus, in a TIR first, the weekly rads are at the END of the episode. Chaos Reigns! This has been a lovely Summer of Rad and on behalf of everyone at TIR, we'd like to thank you for spending your summer with us.

 

So sit back, grab a pile of snacks, and hang out with us as we get summertime silly.

 

Weekly Rads:

Kyle: Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order (game)

This week Kyle, Matthew, and Laura welcome back Joe Kaye for a feature length commentary on the 90's animated summer classic A Goofy Movie. Thrill as every breaks down which anthropomorphized animal character was their sexual awakening. Plus, Powerlines might be the most underrated artist of the 90's. We also talk about the waking nightmare that is the new trailer for Cats. And you better believe Kyle has some strong opinions about Disney Afternoon. A fun cinematic journey into the summer of rad. As a bonus, on the intro Kyle is joined by Jen Saunderson for some extra fun riffing. They imply they might be starting a new podcast so stand by for more info on that in the future (and you thought there wouldn't be any more teases for new stuff after Comic Con!).

 

Note: If you're trying to watch this episode as an actually commentary, go ahead and pause the movie during the Mack Weldon ad. It's not compensated for in the time code. But you do get Sack Weldon and Blandyman talking! This episode is a star studded affair!

 

Weekly Rads:

 

Kyle – The Ice Cream Man (comic)

 

Jen – A Netflix rabbit hole of late 90's / early 00's lady movies like Under The Tuscan Sun, How to Make an American Quilt, and Devine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (movies)

The summer of rad gets foodie as Kyle prepares a lovely flight of popsicles for a panel of discerning palettes. Kyle and Matthew are joined by Robert Ahn, Taylor VH, and Nancy Clark for a discussion of what constitutes a popsicle versus and ice cream novelty, cartooned themed snacks, and the mysterious allure of the ice cream man. We put together a good solid half hour of chat before we start eating so if you are grossed out by people eating on mic, there is a well designated jumping off point. That said, if you can take a little bit of audible slurping (we tried to eat away from mic as much as possible, we're not monster) then you get some good riffing.

 

Technical Note: We were getting some funky buzzes from the aging power cable we were using. We're working on upgrading and its pretty quiet and only happens a few times but figured we'd let you know that we know.

 

Popsicle Flight:

Standard Popsicle brand basic popsicle

Rocket Pop

Sherbet Push Up

Outshine Pineapple Bar

Helados Mexico Fresca-Strawberry Bar

Fudgesicle

Orange Creamsicle

During last year's Summer of Rad we had Brandie Posey, Keith Carey, and Kasey Clark come over to Kyle's backyard so that everybody could pitch their dream music festival. It was a lot of fun and we decided that we should do something similar next year. Then Brandie proposed a fantasy cruise. We set a date and Keith set the wrong date and couldn't make it. Also, Laura was sick. But the REST of the crew returned to bring you a follow up to last years episode. Who is creating a fantasy cruise as an alibi for murder at sea? Are pirate ghosts something you'd want on your cruise? Also, the Los Angeles Clippers look like they have a pretty good season ahead of them. We had a lot of fun and we'd love to know what YOUR fantasy cruise would be so tweet at us @thisisradpod with your pitch!

 

Weekly Rads:

 

Kyle – Midsommar (movie)

 

Kasey – Kawhi Leonard and Paul George joining the LA Clippers (an event that gives Kasey hope for the future)

Welcome to Summer of Rad 2019! For our first summer episode Kyle sat down with one of his favorite people in the world Julia Prescott, and they talk about the songs that make them think of summer. Prepare for some sweet sweet holding phones up to the microphone action. Plus they get into a pretty deep convo about dealing with depression. So if you've got the summertime blues this episode might help. (Or not, hey I'm just a one podcast, there's only so much I can do.) Plus, since Matt and Laura were sick for the episode we have nice long intro for ya. So break out the blank cassette tapes and put together your own personal playlist and we dive into the world of Summah Jamz.

Hey everybody, this week's episode is a doozy! Kyle and Matthew welcome director of photography and adventure punk Jan Michael Losada for a conversation about One Wheels, a crazy ass contraption that you've likely never heard of and Jan has ridden for thousands of miles. Plus, there are some solid tangents about cinematography, VR, and a whole litany of other stuff. Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut... before that high quality episode we had some issues. Ol' producer Kyle had a bit of a goof setting up the recorder and as a result the guest mic was not active for: The Intro! The Ad for Mack Weldon! (go to www.mackweldon.comand use the promo code RAD to get 20% off your first order!) And last but not least, the first 45 minutes of an episode! We started over and still gave you an hour and forty five minute episode where we fixed stuff. For those who are completest, we'll put the lost episode audio at the end (after the closing music) cause there is some fun stuff if you can get past the wonky audio. We include all of it to show, hey, everybody makes mistakes. So kick back, relax, and enjoy!

 

Weekly Rads:

Laura - Good Omens (which she is pretty sure she hasn't said before...) (show)

 

Kyle – Mr. Iglesias (show)

 

Matthew – the ill informed Christian boycott of Good Omens where they didn't know which streaming service it was on and mistakenly said “Don't watch it on Netflix” which is funny because it's on Amazon Prime. (thing that happened)

This week on the show, Kyle and Matthew (along with special guest co-host Gabriella Contreras) are joined by Rick West, the creative director for Midsummer Scream, a fantastic halloween and horror convention August 3-4 in Long Beach, CA. Kyle and Gabriella both adore the con and after Gabriella met Rick at a spooky bar, she connected Kyle so that they could make this episode happen. Guys, turns out Rick, Kyle, and Gabriella can talk about haunts and theme parks... a lot. Rick also created Theme Park Adventure, a newsletter turned website that ran from 1994 to 2018 and was one of the earliest youtube channels to post haunt walkthrough videos. For real guys, this is a fun episode. If you want to hear Kyle gasp and squeal and truly nerdgasm, you have found your episode. It's a little Radtober in the summer time. Something a little different but a lot of fun!

This week on the show Kyle and Burnside are joined by long time friend of the show John Ungaro. It's been forever since John has been on the show and we have plenty to talk about. He got there early and so we had him sit in on the intro so this episode just goes straight through. We talk about the films of indie film icon Jim Jarmusch. Kyle and John both cite Jarmusch as a big influence on their creative work and their teenage interest in independent cinema. They explore the themes and motifs that run through his movies. They also talk about how New York City looks on film. They also get real rambley for a while. If you enjoy tangent episodes, we've got plenty for you this ep. They also speculate about his latest film The Dead Don't Die and how wild it is that thirty years into a career, Jarmusch is making a commercially released zombie movie. I don't think any of us saw that coming. Enjoy!

 

Weekly Rads:

 

Kyle – The Violet Wanderers (podcast) and Protoplanets (band)

 

John – The Maniac Cop Trilogy (movies) and Phantasm (movie) and Swamp Thing (show)

This week on the show Kyle and Matt are joined by the always delightful Ron Swallow to chat about the long running book series The Dresden Files. Fun fact: Kyle and Matt were both unaware this episode was going to be about books. But after some helpful explanation from Ron they get sucked into the description of this long running dark fantasy series. Ron has had a life long love affair with fantasy fiction and Kyle uses this episode as an opportunity to better understand a genre he is woefully under read on. They get into what it takes to make a good ongoing series. Plus, a lot of talk about vampires, and that's always a good time. So whether your a long running fan of the series or if you also had no idea what constitutes a Dresden File, there's something fun for everyone.

This week on the show, Kyle and Matthew welcome comedian and radio DJ Jake Dill. Jake is one of Kyle's longest running friends in comedy and this episode is the first time Kyle has ever heard him talk about his love of Magic: The Gathering. He explains his experiences in the world of Magic, along with his story of how he got into the game and what it is about the game that keeps him coming back. Laura pops in to share her experiences and her and Jake throw down as Matt and Kyle politely have no idea what is happening. This one is super fun and feels like a real celebration of the long running collectable card game. So put your deck together and prepare for a grand ride through the world of one of the most popular trading card games.

Okay... so hear us out. You're thinking to yourself, “hmm, that title sounds familiar but I'm not sure from where...” Let's get a couple of things straight. Yes, that is the title of domestic terrorist Ted Kaczynski's manifesto. No, this is not an episode supporting the violent actions of anyone. But, This Is Rad, what is this episode then? When we ask guests what they want to talk about, it's often something like “I really love jackets” and we talk about jackets (hmm... we should do a jacket episode when it starts getting chilly again...) In this case, Kyle's longtime friend Jason Van Glass proposed an interesting experiment for the show. Believe it or not, both Kyle and Matthew had their worries going into this episode. What resulted what a great and thought provoking episode about ideology, technological advancement, human societal structures, anarchism, and about a million other high concept ideas. After so much worry this turned out to be one of the most interesting episodes we have done in a while. If you dug the Invisibles episodes, this episode definitely pairs nicely with that one. Thanks to Jason for throwing us a fascinating curve ball and a great episode!

WARNING: This episode deals with some dark subject matter due in part to the nature of the artist we are discussing. Also, darkness is something that just kinda happens when you get Kyle, Keith, and Nicole together. So if you're not feeling up to it, we still love you and we'll see you next week. <3

 

Today Kyle and Matthew are joined by podcast favorites Nicole Becannon and Keith Carey for a discussion of Eminem. They take a look at his long and storied career and use it as a way to look at how the music industry as a whole has evolved over the last twenty years. Yeah, that's right, twenty years. You feel that? That's the terrifying feeling of age my friend. But don't think about that. Think about bleached hair and baggy jeans. And songs about murder fantasies. And also songs about feeling bad about yourself. Plus there are some pretty wild tangents. This one is a lot of fun. Please enjoy whole sections of episode where we all just end up laughing for extended periods. Not for the faint of heart but if you're feeling bold, come get silly with us.

It took two episodes and nearly 7 hours of podcast but we have concluded our magnum opus breaking down Grant Morrison's “The Invisibles.” Brent Schmidt returns with even more notes and we dive into volumes 2 and 3 of this epic story of magick and the nature of reality. After explaining Chaos Magick and the basic players we are now ready to dig deep into the story and our theories behind the story. Brent has truly outdone himself again as we complete what we are dubbing the “Brent Trilogy” along with our Animorphs and Sekret Machines episodes.

This week on the show Matthew and Kyle welcome Kim and David Harvey for a chat about HBO's fantasy epic Game of Thrones. In the weeks before the show goes into it's final season we take it upon ourselves to discuss two key aspects of the show: 1.) It RULES and 2.) It should never have worked as a show. Kim and David are pretty hardcore fantasy nerds. We take some time to break down just how many decorative swords they have in their home. Kyle and Kim have found that Game of Thrones finds this weird middle ground for someone who doesn't normally like fantasy like Kyle and somebody who LOVES it like Kim. It's a fun talk and we will likely do some kind of fun bonus episode follow up after this season ends so we can all see how we feel. But for now, please enjoy this episode and tweet at us and let us know how excited you are about the final season!

This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by fan favorite Brent Schmidt. You guys know when Brent comes on the show it's something special and he does not disappoint this time. I know there is a segment of our listeners who say “I just wish they'd talk more about chaos magick!” Well good news! This is the episode you've been waiting for. The boys break down Grand Morrison's comic book magnum opus The Invisibles. This is an episode Kyle and Brent have been prepping for a while and they are THRILLED to finally bring it to you. But in the grand tradition of the show we run long. But we run so long that we're actually going to do a follow up episode in a few weeks. For now enjoy our break down of chaos magick, the origins of the series, and our thoughts on the first volume. This episode was super fun, come get weird with us.

Yeah, it's a big box store and big corporations are the devil but work with us here, there's some good riffs and a lot of shared experiences about the weirdness of consistency walking through a Target. There is a lot a lot of talk about Arizona, where Jessie grew up and got her start in comedy. There is also talk about the fun and free games you and your friends make when you are all broke. Plus on the intro there is kind of an impromptu state of the union for the video game industry and Matthew has some interesting observations. Overall, fun times with fun people. Enjoy!

Rad on, Rad off. This week on the show, Kyle, Matthew, and Laura sit down with the brilliant Kate Gaffney to talk about her favorite movie of all time The Karate Kid. This is the first time we've chatted with Kate on land, but you might remember her from last summer's boat episode. The Karate Kid is kinda a perfect storm for this group. The movie combines fun 80's montages, life lessons, dating, family dynamics, and heaping helpings of sweet sweet shots of the San Fernando Valley in the 1980's. They talk about how well cast the movie is and in general how the movie is better and more emotional than it has any right to be. And yeah, they talk about the sequels and re-makes too. Fun times. Just remember this everybody: You're the best around and nothing's ever gonna keep you down.

We have returned as the prophecy has foretold. Kyle and Matthew welcome back Anna Valenzuela and Jenny Chalikian for the third installment of their ongoing retrospective of the Battlestar Galactica reboot. This time they take a look at season two and in the process learn that a lot of stuff they thought was from season two is actually season three and instead season two is full of crazy stuff they almost forgot. This gets intense. Kyle and Anna excitedly yell a lot. We praise Grace Park for playing two charters who look exactly and yet feel entirely different from one another. We breakdown why the Chief is maybe the most complex character. We continue our campaign to elect Laura Roslin present of everything forever. Plus, after so much talk, it has finally arrived: FAT APOLLO enters the series!

Pizza in the morning. Pizza in the evening. Pizza at supper time. When pizza is the subject of your podcast, you can have pizza anytime. Did I do that for the last pizza episode? I was gonna check but then I didn't and now here we are. This week on the show Kyle and Matthew welcome writer/comedian Matt Dwyer to the show. Besides being one of the darkest and funniest writers Kyle knows he's also become an excellent pizza chef in the last few years. Matt hails from Chicago and after our amazing episode with Steve Simone about proper New York pizza we felt it was only fair to get the second city's view on making a proper pizza. We get into some intresting territory about the lesser known approaches to pizza and Kyle learns to gain an appreciation for proper Chicago style deep dish pizza. If you are like him and have your doubts this is worth a listen. This is probably not a good episode to listen to while hungry cause it's mostly us just talking about how delicious food is. We also get into some great tangents about Tom Waits, Jerry Stahl, and the evils of corporate culture. Yeah, on the pizza episode.

 

Note: We tried an experiment with the way we opened the episode. We started and then Kyle realized that we could do the intro and the episode as one track (less editing!). So if you seem real confused, we were just trying something for the sake of trying it, fear not, we'll be back to normal format next week. Order shall be preserved and there will again be peace and freedom in the galaxy....

This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by returning guest Jozalyn Sharp. Last time Jozalyn came on and talked about dogs. Cute fuzzy wuzzy widdle doggies with their little wagity tales and flopity ears. So naturally, this time, we are talking about the ultra violent mid-2000's horror franchise Saw. Joz is a massive fan of the franchise and Kyle and Burnside are no slouches either. Joz is one of our favorite guests and she does not disappoint. The gang come to the defense of the franchise and point out that the early films have much more in common with a Law and Order-style police procedural than the “torture porn” moniker the franchise is often saddled with. They break down just what makes the franchise fun and exciting and they do their best to parse through the insane continuity of the series. They talk about their favorite Jigsaw puzzles and ruminate on how they'd fair if they found themselves playing one of Jigsaw's games. It's a fun episode and as always Joz is one of the funniest and filthiest comedians around so things get silly despite the buckets of blood and viscera.

Okay, after almost six years of podcasting every week, it finally happened... We got so deep into a conversation that the idea originally conceived (comics) got a little lost in the shuffle. Don't get me wrong, we DO talk about comics, for like a few minutes... and then... well, it's a really fun episode! Our guest Pablo Escobosa is a very sharp, funny, and talented dude and you won't walk away disappointed. If you like riffs, consider this an all riffs episode. If you like topics, next week's episode we are back to our regularly scheduled format. For this week, find a comfy spot on the couch and come hang out with Kyle, Matthew, and Pablo as they go on a journey.

If you'd told us that there would be a Real Housewives episode of This Is Rad, when we started This Is Rad, we'd have worried you'd come from the darkest timeline. And hey, maybe you did, we don't know. But this episode is, in fact, rad. That is thanks, in no small part, to our guest, the brilliant and hilarious Annie Lockwood. Annie is in LA visiting from the ATL and sat down with Kyle and Matt to talk about her love of the many flavors of Real Housewives. Annie was Kyle's opener for his album taping back in December. They met may years ago at a mic in Atlanta and Kyle has been a fan ever since. Believe it or not, this episode has some insane tangents. Burnside turns the show into an episode of Shark Tank for a while. Tweet at us if you would buy Matt's product. Lot of talk about butts in this one. Like... a lot. Enjoy!

Man, sometimes we have good timing. This week Kyle and Mathew chat with Robert Ahn about his love for director Yorgos Lanthimos. And wouldn't you know it, Mr. Lanthimos just got nominated for Best Director for his fantastic new film The Favorite. Kyle and Robert break down what makes Lanthimos' work so compelling and they hope that like Burnside, by the end of this episode you'll give him movies a try. His mix of stylized acting and dark humor is super distinct and there's not better time to go check his stuff out so you can seem worldly and hip when your friends ask if you've ever heard of him. Plus, we go on a couple insane tangents. Burnside get's real silly. He's a fun guy.

This week Kyle takes a solo trip to long beach to catch up with his former roommate and dear friend Eric Bryan for a chat about the most underrated of musical instruments, the bass. Eric is a fantastic bass player who has hopped around numerous metal bands over the years. These days he plays with the excellent thrash band Anger As Art (who just released a new live album “Fast as F*ck”). Kyle talks about his long history of relationships with bass players, from his father, to some of his best friends, and past girlfriends. He also talks about how he has started to play more bass than guitar in recent years. They talk about what makes a good bass player and what bass brings to a band. They break down some of rock and metal's bass luminaries and how their played elevated their respective groups. They also chat about the philosophy of bass playing. There's probably more talk about the art of bass here than you are likely to find anywhere. (But if you find any sweet bass podcasts, be sure to let us know!) They also go on some pretty nerdy music tangents. If you're a fan of metal or sweet sweet low end, this episode is a good time.

And handsome boys. And at one point it spins off into a chat just about cute boys in general. Plus we talk about demons. And how great monster of the week shows are. Plus, we entertain the idea of an all CW universe cross over event and how insane that might be. Lacretia has an encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture stuff that rivals or maybe even surpasses Kyle.

This week Kyle and Matthew chat with Katie Pajao about the Canadian teen melodrama glory that is Degrassi. They explore what exactly it is about the show that is so captivating. They discuss how Nickelodeon's deep cable spin off channels changed how a whole generation views Canadian teen life. And they talk about Drake. But also, Katie plays a large part in Kyle's becoming a stand up and you get to hear some stories of high school drama club Kyle. And who doesn't want that? It's a wild ride and there are lots of tangents. Good times man.
