Merry Rad-mas! This week Kyle and Matthew have got a special someone on their "Nice" list: Meltdown Comics' own Gaston Dominguez-Letelier. That's right, THE Gaston! They take a fascinating look at the world of toy collecting: the ups, the downs, and the hollow victory of buying your dreams on eBay. Gaston also shares the exhilarating (and terrifying) ordeal of making your own toys. Topics include Lego, Pez, Nerf, Amiibo and other words that are barely words. Plus, Japan and Spiderman. Toy to the world!

Kyle and Matthew sit down with the super kawaii Laura Knight and Kyle's brother's friend Doug Tardif to discuss their complicated relationship with anime (not Japanimation!). Kyle waxes poetic about Evangelion, the golden days of internet piracy and plot structure in relation to orgasms (huh?). Other topics include Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, Cowboy Bebop and Naruto. Believe it!

Is the band Radiohead overrated? In for sure the yelliest episode yet, Kyle and Matthew team up with guests Nolan Fabricius and John Roy to have a high school style debate on a topic they're all very passionate about. Who will win? Kyle and Nolan's loud yelling or John and Matthew's even louder yelling? WHAT? We can't hear you over the screams.
