This Is Rad!

This week, Kyle and Matthew welcome comedian Kelsey Lane for a chat about Wizard Rock. What the hell is Wizard Rock, you ask? Well it is bands that play songs about Harry Potter. Kelsey tells us about her years going to the Boston Potter Ball. Plus, she and Kyle are both Ravenclaw. That's fun, right? Beyond Wizard Rock, we also discuss farts a great deal. Also, playing in bands, boxed wine, and musical comedy.

 

Weekly Rads:

Kyle – Streets of Fire (movie)

Matthew – Documental Season 4 (series)

Kelsey – Willem DeFoesters (coasters that look like actor Willem Defoe)

We also chat about long term comedy careers, avoiding jerks, and nerdy crap aplenty. Check out Ron's videos of some of his old rollerblading highlights and go support The Greatest pod with Ron Swallow and Ed Greer, two This Is Rad's favorite people.

Kyle and Matthew sit down for another round of listener questions. Now... I know what you're thinking: “Hey weren't Matthew and Kyle supposed to do this episode IN PERSON!? What kind of liars are you jerk faces?” And that is a reasonable question phrased very fairly. We have a reason. It's pretty funny. Go give the ep a listen. You might have a chuckle. The rest of the ep is fun as well, digital as it may have been...

This week on the show musician Grant Bubar drops in for a last minute episode. The boys talk video games music. Interestingly then tend to focus on the games from their youth so we get a lot of playstation era conversation. This is FAR from the last episode we will do on this topic so fret not that we didn't talk about the Chrono Trigger score. We'll get there one day. In the mean time, this ep has a lot of fun tangents including Grant chatting a bit about his band Sad Park and their recent signing to Lauren Records.

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.

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome comedian Quincy Johnson II for a conversation about old timey radio... but also a lot of other stuff. Quincy is a fantastic comedian and he was on the last live comedy show Kyle was on last year. Getting back together they get off on some wild tangents as they go along including Godzilla vs Kong, antiquated weed humor, and America's love affair with Stone Cold Steve Austin. Come for the chat about how early radio broadcasting developed most of the language we still use for modern American media. Stay for the good hang.

Kyle - Farscape (show)

Matt - Season 3 of The Last Drive-In (show)

They also explore the larger swatch of recent Stephen King adaptations and explore what seems to work and what doesn't when it comes to bringing his books into another medium. If you love Stephen King or getting I not the nitty gritty of writing, filmmaking, and adaptation, then strap in cause you are in for a ride. Tweet at us and let us know what you thought of the CBS series!

This week, we welcome back the always wonderful Joe Kaye to chat about Walt Disney's Experimental Prototype City of Tomorrow, or EPCOT. Matthew Burnside is on assignment so we are also joined by the also always wonderful Laura Knight. So you got three Disney park nerds talking about possibly the nerdist of all Disney parks. Instead of a history of EPCOT, we opt to explore what makes EPCOT unique and special. From making learning fun to being a gateway for expanding your pallet, to the raging debate about integrating IP into the park, we celebrate a park where idiosyncrasies and outside the box thinking have create a one of a kind experience.

Kyle - La Casa Lobo (movie) Supernatural (show) American Dreamz (movies)

Laura - Wanda Vision (show) American Gods (show) resident alien (show)

This week the one and only Laura Knight returns to guest co-host because Matthew lost his voice screaming at the Cleveland Browns. But Matthew could not have had better timing because this week Rad welcomes longtime friend to the show Richard Eden for his first ever solo appearances. What subject could these two titians of Rad combine their knowledge for? This episode is one of the rare treats were we have two talented experts chat about their jobs as graphic designers. In the past year as Kyle's been studying visual art, he's learned graphic design is a thing. So take a seat next to Kyle as he uses this opportunity to learn about graphic design from two talented designers. But don't worry, just because this episode has some educational value, don't think we don't go off the rails a few times to side tangent about Supernatural, Canada, and any number of other topics. As Kyle says at the beginning of the ep, this one is a real humdinger.

Richard has been kind enough to produce a reference list for this episode

This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by music teacher, concert percussionist, and drummer for the incredibly rad band Sad Park, Grant Bubar for a chat about classical music. Grant shares with us how his study of music and working as an orchestral musician has given him an appreciation of classical music and he hopes to share some of what he loves about it with us in the hope that he can make getting into classical music less daunting. We get into the what defines classical music and why the best known composers are best known. Plus Grant gives us a few lesser known or recently rediscovered composers that are starting to be added to the cannon. But, like any good music episode, there is also plenty of talk about modern music, playing music, and the science behind music. We had so much fun with this ep that we will definitely circle back to this later on for a deeper dive into how to listen and what to listen for. If you've never dabble in classical music, this might give you some ways to explore it without feeling totally lost.

 

Bonus!

Grant made a spotify playlist so you can explore some of HIS favorite and essential classical pieces:

As Matt shares on the episode, he recently had a tragic loss of a close family friend and her daughter. The family has set up a gofund me to help her surviving husband and child.
