This Is Rad!

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome one of Matt's longtime friend and hilarious comedian Grant Pardee to the show to chat about adventures in the Mushroom Kingdom. The Mario franchise could have like twenty episodes about it, so in this episode we are focusing on Grant's love of the 3D Mario games. For the uninitiated, there are several types of games featuring Nintendo's main man. Classic 2D, New 2D that is kinda 3D, humorous RPGs, and many more. We explore the evolution from Mario World for the SNES to the groundbreaking Super Mario 64. Plus, Grant has a hot take on Mario Sunshine. It's also a great episode if you're just looking for some straight up video game talk. A heartwarming reunion of friends and some super nerdy tangents!? Them Rad boys have done it again...
