This Is Rad!

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.
