This Is Rad!

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.

This week Matthew is on assignment so Kyle and Laura welcome Lacretia Lyon to the show to chat about the long running cult favorite show Supernatural. They talk about handsome Dads. 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. So kick back, relax and watch the references fly!

 

Weekly Rads:

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.
