Live from Meltdown Comics, it's "This Is Rad!" Kyle and Matthew sit down with comedian Joe Raines and Producer Natalie to attempt to scratch the surface of this long-running comedy juggernaut. Joe has seen every episode of SNL and enlightens Kyle on the appeal. From 1975 to the present, they break down underrated cast members, the best casts and years, as well as the seasons Joe needed a lot of weed to get through. They also take a brief detour to talk about their own sketch comedy show Camp NerdMelt - with a special appearance from "Mr. Gribbles." Big thanks to Kasey Clark for being our Don Pardo!

Will they instantly regret having zero healers and survive their quest?

Accio rad! Boy wizards Kyle and Matthew sit down with Laura Knight and Sarah Wines to talk about the wizarding world of Harry Potter. Kyle and Matthew aren't huge fans...do their guests persuade them to give the Boy Who Lived a second chance? Other topics include prime numbers, memories of waiting in line for the books and throwing smoothies at windshields. They also play the game Superfight! by Skybound. It's the podcast that must not be named!
Note: This episode is free of major spoilers. Some minor details are spoiled but nothing integral to the plot.

Heeeeere's Johnny! Kyle and Matthew sit down with Becky Joiner and Tim Kozlenko to discuss the master of the macabre, the king of horror, the scribe of all things scary: Stephen King. They talk about his spookiest novels, novellas and short stories - as well as his shittiest TV movies. Other topics include malt shop obsessions, Cujo memory lapses and the hubris of "Maximum Overdrive." Radrum...Radrum...
