This Is Rad! (general)

This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by comedian Annie Lockwood for a chat about the the best named discount store in the world T.J. Maxx. Annie shares her almost zen-like enjoyment of going through the racks looking for gold. She has some amazing stories about some of her finds, and shares with us some of her tips and tricks for you to try on your own ventures to the land of discount. Plus, we chat about some weird Wii games and Kyle and Matt learn about cosmetic calculators. A fun and educational episode!

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.

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.

Kyle, Matthew, Rivers, Carter, and Taylor have returned from their pee break and finish their year in radview...

 

from pt. 1:

This week Kyle and Matthew banish 2020 back to the hell from whence it came! They do so with the help of Rivers Langly and Carter Glasscock from The Goods from the Woods and Taylor V-H. They discuss the year that was and reminisce about TV, movies, video games, and music that came out. They also share their personal ups and downs over the year and how they all learned and adapted to some real sudden changes in plans for the year. They also share things they are grateful for and look at how they learned and grew through this experience.

 

We split this ep into 2 parts because five hours seemed like a bit much for one episode even by our standards....

 

This Is Rad is grateful to our listeners for letting us be a part of your 2020. From Kyle, Matthew, and Laura, along with the rest of the TIR family, thank you.

We figured we could all use a human moment so we hung out and now you're hanging with us too. Pass the chips when you get a chance BTW. Regardless of the madness of the world, we all got each other and I can't think of a crew I'd rather be with. Stay safe. Stay sane. Stay rad.

This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by the always wonderful Robert Ahn for a chat about the Japanese television series Documental. Robert has been a fan of the work of Hitoshi Matsumoto for many years and Documental has been the first (legal) way for folks in the US to see one of Matsumoto's game shows translated with subtitles. We discuss the madness that is this show. If you are a fan of jackass but wish it had more gambling, the show is worth checking out. That said, if you do not enjoy gross out humor or general weirdness, def proceed with caution but still enjoy the episode cause we got some solid ass tangents.

 

Weekly Rads:

Kyle - Haunted Hayride Covid Edition (halloween attraction)

 

Matt - The American BBQ Showdown (Netflix show)

This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by James D Hillmer for a chat about Korean actor Kang-ho Song. James is currently in a doctoral program studying Korean culture and suggested using Kang-ho Song to explore the world of Korean cinema. In the last few decades, Korean cinema has risen to international prominence. While early breakouts like Oldboy or The Host appealed to genre fans, the 2019 best picture win for Parasite shows just how much impact Korean cinema is having around the world. If you're unfamiliar with Korean cinema or saw Parasite and want to see more, this isn't a bad place to start.

This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by comedian and one third The Goods from the Woods, Carter Glasscock to chat about Starcraft and the general pleasure of 90's/00's PC gaming.

We're not just chatting about the TV show and it's banger of a theme song. But today, to fit with our theme, we are looking at The Magic School Bus through the lens of their 90's CD-Rom games. Lot going on this episode, but a good time is had by all.

This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by longtime friend of the show Adam Crosse. Adam has been a radster since the early days and we're very excited to finally have him on the show and as a bonus we get to talk about rad manga and anime! Adam runs us through what the hell Jojo is and we explore in detail the first few stories so if you're somebody who worries about spoilers maybe hold out until you've watched the first 3 seasons of the book or manga. But our retelling can't possibly undermine just how weird and wonderful Jojo is. So grab a mesh t-shirt, get your stand ready, and strap in for a fun episode.

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome back Tess Llanos from the Ongong Comicbook Discussion for a chat about women in the business of comic books. They highlight a few mainstream authors who have been able to break through in a big bad way and Kyle gives a nice list of amazing works from indie creators. Lot of titles get tossed around, if you're looking for something different to read, there is a pretty wild world of stuff in this episode that is, in fact, rad.

 

Weekly Rads:

Kyle - Procreate (app) and Negro Terror (band)

Burnside - Earth by Ed O’Brian (album)

Tess - Joker Harley Criminal Sanity (comic)

Ladies and gentlemen please strap in because on this episode we are going on a journey that spans the entire universe and more than 40,000 years! This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by comedian Dave Apkarian for a chat about the lore behind the popular tabletop game Warhammer 40k. Dave has gotten into miniature painting and Kyle has been fascinated by David's new hobby. After a few off mic discussion about how the Warhammer lore is pretty cool they decided an episode was in order. This is one of those episodes where Kyle and Matt hand Dave the keys and let him drive. And he sure takes us places. If you have no idea what Warhammer 40k is about (and we sure had no idea...) then this is a great primer. I'm sure it'll spark some corrections and conversations and that's half the fun of the ep. We want to eventually do separate episode on miniature painting and the game itself as well. So snuggle up and let Sad Dad Dave tell us all an epic tale from beyond the stars!

 

Weekly Rads:

Kyle – The Jackass Movies (movies)

 

Burnside – Consistency! (lifestyle choice)

 

Dave – Goobertown Hobbies (youtube for model painting) and Luetin09 (youtube for Warhammer lore)

This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by J Gonzo for a chat about the wild world of 60's Garage rock. We explore what Garage rock is, why and how it has spread around the world, and what makes it the patient zero for so many subsequent genres of music. Becasue J Gonzo is on the show, you can also expect a pretty hefty amount of comic book talk. A super fun episode.

This week Kyle and Matt welcome back musician Eric Bryan for a chat about one of horrors most underrated directors Stuart Gordon. Sure, we all love Reanimator, and with good reason, it's awesome. But Gordon has an impressively consistent back catalogue. They explore how his years working in theater impacted his work in film. From the actors he worked with to the ways he pushed his budgets so his films always feel ambitious even when they were made for nothing, Stuart Gordon is a perfect example of how to do a lot with a little. Plus you get some riffs on basketball, the evolution of metal in the last 10 years, and dogs. A good old fashion rad and a little bit of Radtober in springtime. We hope you are all doing alright out there.

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome comedian Emily Walsh to chat about her recent dabblings in lego stop motion. During the big Q Emily has taken some old legos she and her boyfriend had in their apartment and began experimenting with stop motion animation. Her skills as a set designer helped her create some great sets and a book gave her all the start out info she needed to get started. This is a super fun episode and we hope it inspires you to go out and try something creative you've always dreamed of trying. Also, since this episode, Kyle has been trying his hand at lego animation as well, using the same book and app that Emily did. Spoiler, Emily is way better at it, but it has been a fun learning experience.

Check out Emily's lego videos on her Instagram: @thefunnywalsh

This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by comedian and musician Mike Valdes for a chat about ABC's Friday night programing block from the 90's, TGIF. This is a spiritual sequel to our Family Matters episode from years ago. We still find time to riff on Family Matters but we also explore the rest of TGIF's classics. Did Hanging with Mr. Cooper have one of the most underrated theme songs of all time? How many times did Boy Meets World completely change what kind of show it was? And did Salem the taking cat somehow topple the TGIF empire? All these questions and more will be explored.

This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by the one and only Lisa Curry. Lisa hasn't been on since our last boats episode because she spent most of last year traveling the world and doing stand up. But now she's back in LA and since we're all stuck inside we asked her to come on and catch up. Turns out before comedy Lisa dabble in home remodeling and since being quarantined, she been turning those skills towards her apartment. Lisa also recorded her first comedy album last year and her and Kyle discuss the process of finishing a record.

 

Also, after everything working smoothly for the last few eps, we had some tech issues. The recording cuts out and Burnside's place loses power a few times, but we stick the landing, plus, it's been a while since we've had an excuse to break out the segue music, so that's fun.

Lisa – Long Walks (activity)

 

Kyle – Star Trek Voyager (show)

That's because This is Rad has gotten itself an official Game Master: Game Master Ryan. Ryan got in contact with us and inquired about writing tabletop campaigns for the show, we jumped at the chance and he put together the weird and wonderful adventure you're going to hear today. We look forward to more tabletop games in the future now that we have GM Ryan onboard. Plus, the group try a new game system, Monster of the Week (which, is, in fact, rad). So grab some snacks, dim the lights and strap in for a rousing adventure!

Kyle and Matthew are joined by their podcast friends from the great white north Richard Eden and Reid Vanier of the Doctor DC podcast. Together they celebrate the great perennial number two of the comic book industry, DC Comics. Now, we know what you're thinking “make mine Marvel or GTFO” but hear us out... What if DC was secretly the coolest comic book company and we all just never noticed? Turns out beyond Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman there is a dense and rich history of really cool (and often really WEIRD) characters and stories. If you've never been into DC or have wondered where to start, we give some fun ideas. If you're a longtime DC fan, we go deep on some fun stuff in the DC canon. We also for sure missed some stuff because the DC universe is vast, so tweet at us with YOUR favorite DC books or let us know if you end up checking out anything we recommend. A fun episode with some delightful Canadians!

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome Tara McKinney to the show. Kyle met Tara years ago when she started working as a camera operator on Talking Dead. Over the years they've become friends and it turns out Tara is a hell of a writer. This is her first podcast and while we never quite nailed down a topic we ended up on a pretty solid groove for a conversation. The title comes from the fact that if Kyle or Matt got too nerdy Tara would just space out and think about girls. She's really fun and this was a great last episode before rad goes into quarantine.

 

Concerning all the health issues, This Is Rad wants to you know we've set up plans so that unless like the whole grid goes down, we will still be bringing you episodes every week. What those look like is going to be a fun learning experience for all of us, but we just want you to know that for as long as every body is cooped up at home (or out in the world, if you're still out working) that we will be right here with you. Everybody stay safe and go wash your hands.

 

<3

Kyle, Matthew, and Laura

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome Khalid Salaam for a chat about the living dead and their place in pop culture. Khalid explains his parents unorthodox use of horror movies as a tool for punishing him as a child. But that which scares you as a kid often draws you in with fascination as you get older. Kyle and Khalid have worked together in various capacities over the years and despite the fact that they both work on a show about re-animated corpses, they explore a much broader scope of the zombie. We talk classic (and underrated) movies. The best (and not the best) video games. Turns out there are books about zombies. There is a lot of zombie media out there to choose from and they give you some picks for their favorites. But part of the appeal of the zombie narrative is the concept of “survival horror” and the boys explore this topic quite a bit as well. Plus, we got our fair share of hot riffs. Even if you are sick to death of zombie BS in pop culture this episode might remind you that there was once a time where the “Z” word did no elicit groans and eye rolls. Go back with us to a simpler time...

This week, Kyle and Matthew try something a little different. They welcome Anna Jean to the studio, a comedian whom neither Kyle or Matt had met before. She'd contacted Kyle about doing the show after a previous guest said doing This Is Rad is a fun time. A couple of FB messages later and here we are. After about five minutes you'd have no idea that we'd never met Anna before because everybody becomes best friends as we riff on video games, comedy, and her topic Cooking. Anna's mom tried to each her some classic Haitian dish when she was growing up and she wasn't interested, now she spends a ton of her time trying to learn to cook via youtube. It's a fun journey from a very funny comedian and a new member of the extended TIR family.

This week on the show Kyle and Matthew sit down for a KING SIZED inaugural episode of our Listener Questions series. Last ep of the month we will answer questions that you paid us a dollar (or five dollars) to ask. And we answer a whole heck of a lot of them (something like over fifty but less than sixy). This was super fun!!! You guys are great and we thank you for your questions and we thank the folks who didn't ask questions just for listening. Also, for real, this could have gone longer but Kyle had to leave to go see his brother's band play. But three and a half hours seems pretty reasonable. Please enjoy and if you have your own burning questions head over to our Patreon and holla at us!

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome their dear old friend, photographer Billy Small. Billy has worked with Kyle and Matt many times in the past and ALWAYS makes them laugh. After years of doing the podcast they were both very excited to have him on. What follows is some podcast silliness. The topic is Fly Fishing but you're probably not going to learn a lot about fly fishing, but if you enjoy listening to a bunch of people get silly, this ep is gonna be a good time.

 

Also, if you are on the Patreon, make sure to get our questions in for our first “Listener Questions” episode next week!

She recounts her globe trotting adventures, resorts designed entirely around SCUBA diving, and the terrors too much nitrogen can do to your body.

No! Don't run away! This is a super interesting episode I swear! For a few years Kyle has been trying to get our guest Ray Camacho to come on for this topic. Ray is in a super rad band called Sacer and studied theology in college. These two passions have lead to him having an impressive knowledge of faith based punk bands. Religious punk has been around almost as long as punk. The idea feels inherently contradictory and yet numerous subcultures and subgenres exist and thrive today. We chat about different faiths and the bands that have come out representing them. We also just have some interesting chats about the ideas of religion and the complicated relationship between religion and culture. Its a different kind of episode but I swear it's got lots of good bits and riffs.

 

Also, we want to once again take a second and thank everyone who has joined our Patreon. We are so overwhelmed by your incredible support!

As is tradition, a new numbered Star Wars film has been released, we have waited a month, and now we have gathered with our official Star Wars experts Klee Wiggins and Ed Greer for a rousing chat about the state of the Star Wars universe. This is the first time we've all gotten together since The Last Jedi so expect some chat about Solo. Plus, some Star Wars show on a Disney streaming service appears to be pretty good. This episode isn't so much a review as much as an excuse to really get in an dissect the evolution of the most popular film franchise of all time and what it means to be a franchise in 2020.

This week on the show Kyle and Matthew are joined by the Goods From The Woods (Rivers Langley, Carter Glasscock, and Sam Harter) for a look back at the 2010's. They put together some best of lists for movies, music, TV, video games, books, comics, and a whole lot of other stuff. The last ten years had a pretty profound effect on everyone on this episode and they explore where they were 10 years ago versus now. It's a long one but it's a heck of a ride. Oh, they also talk about Cats for a while up top.

 

Instead of a weekly rad this week we ask that you donate to the family of Matthew's friend Zach Reed who tragically lost his life in a motorcycle accident shortly after Christmas.

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome Brandii Grace for a chat about video games, getting involved in politics, and changing the world around you. Now before you go screaming into the night at the idea of an episode about politics, let us assure you there is plenty of talk about Star Trek, video games, and other fun stuff as well. But yes, we do talk about the political process and Brandii's story of getting into pubic service and running for office is inspiring. She brings the process to a human level and helps you see what running for office looks like for someone who is not a billionaire. If nothing else hopefully we inspire you to get out and vote next year.

This week, Kyle and Matthew welcome back the always wonderful Joe Kaye for a chat about a band that has taken their fair share of derision over the years, The Decembrists. Now, if you are scoffing, give the episode a listen. Joe does a FANTASTIC job explaining what makes the band one of his all time favorites. Kyle shares his journey from hating the band to being a fan of their work. It's neat sometimes when we get to do an episode where we give something a second chance. And even if you're not convinced by the end, we got some pretty good tangents too.

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome director and one third of The People's Collective Malik McCrea for a chat about making stuff. All parties involved agree that making stuff is pretty rad. Whatever your venture, the satisfaction of looking at something you made is intoxicating. But for every high high in making stuff there are also plenty of low lows. It comes with the territory. But one of the most important things you can remember is that when things are down, you can't give up because you never know what's going to happen next. There's also a lot of talk about movies and Malik shares is super cool origin story. Something a little different for you this week but we hope this episode inspires you to go make a thing, or if you are in the dregs of a project, we hope this inspires you to hang in there!

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome writer Sarah Landauer and artist Alston Novak to chat about one of the greatest films of modern cinema, 2015's Mad Max: Fury Road. Sarah and Alston are the creative team behind the digital comic “Glitch” which happens to be a story that takes place in a post apocalyptic desert wasteland. Turns out, Mad Max has had some influence on their work but not in some of the ways you might imagine. This episode is fun. Everybody nerds out pretty hard. We get into anime. We get into making comics. We get into eating lizards. It gets wild. Enjoy the ep and go support Sarah and Alston's series “Glitch” on the Macroverse app.

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome artist and comedian Andrea Guzzetta to the show for a conversation about Andrea's fascinating history with collecting bones. We learn some of the finer points of bone collecting and also learn some pretty cool art you can make out of bones and hair. We also explore the pros and cons of art school. Plus Kyle and Andrea bond over finding a creative voice that feels true even if it doesn't match the perception someone might have of you on first impression. Oh, and there is a lot of talk about life in the Midwest and how much it seems to confound Kyle's Southern California mind.

 

Fun Fact: Andrea painted Tom Goss' album cover and it's truly spectacular! It's in pre-order so go to apple music and add Tom Goss: Dead From Chicago and listen to the preview track while you take in Andrea amazing work.

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome Josh Shakespeare to the show for a conversation about what makes a rappers flow distinct. They compare the distinct stylistic flow different artists bring to their music and compare it to the way comedians tell jokes. I bet nobody saw that comparison coming! They also reminisce about the heyday of Meltdown. If you like comedy-centric episodes, this one is your jam.

This week on the show the boys welcome Alexis Filth to chat about rock and roll provocateur Marilyn Manson. In a fun twist of fate we learn that while all three enjoy his music, none of them discovered him when they were in his traditional teen demographic. How do you learn to appreciate the AntiChrist Superstar as an adult? Listen and find out. Plus they explore Manson's place in the 90's/00's musical landscape, the ways he has evolved over the years, and some of the interesting side projects he's worked on over the years. So dust off your old Hot Topic shirts and come along on another Radtober adventure!

For week two of Radtober 2019 we are joined by Adam Murray for a nearly 4 hour chat about one of the greatest living directors, the one and only Guillermo del Toro! We go movie by movie and explore what makes Guillermo del Toro such a unique film maker. Are you a big fan? Then come hang out with some fellow fans and nerd out. New to del Toro? Consider this a perfect primer! Listen and if one of the movies sounds interesting go check it out. We go from his childhood in Mexico all the way through to speculating about what he might do next. Is it long? Yes. Is it awesome? Also yes. So sit down, relax, and let us do our best Dan Carlin impression as we take you on an epic journey into the dark fantasy worlds of Guillermo del Toro.

In the last few years Crystal has come into her own as a writer and a poet and been publishing books and traveling around doing speaking gigs with her poetry. She also knows how to hula hoop with a flaming hula hoop. Can Robert Frost do that? I didn't think so. If you dig deep talks about creative process this episode has got you covered. If you like King Crimson, that also comes up a bit. There's fun for everyone!

Today on the show Kyle and Matthew welcome Lyndon Tucker to chat about one of the great action movies of the 90's Kathryn Bigelow's Point Break. Kyle and Lyndon love this movie and Matthew just saw it for the first time hours before we recorded the episode. He was less in love. But the three have a fun and in depth conversation about the film nonetheless. They go deep breaking down each character and try to understand the strange alchemy that the movie has that makes it work. They also discuss Kathryn Bigelow and how she is one of the best living American directors. Oh, and there are some pretty solid tangents. If you've never seen the film or if you've seen it a million times, this ep is a fun celebration of a modern classic.

This week on the show we bring you another off the beaten path episode. Sometimes nobody is free Labor Day weekend to do an episode. It happens. But if you're smart, you have a conversation you had with Tom Goss while in Chicago to fall back on. Kyle and Tom sat late at night in Kyle's hotel room and ate chips and talked about comedy. If you're a stand up nerd there is a chance you might dig this episode cause Kyle and Tom explain their processes for putting together their albums. This was originally gonna be part of a bigger collection of pieces from Chicago but scheduling got kinda wacky. Things seem to be settling back into a bit more normalcy now so we should be back to some more regular episodes soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this very raw but very fun chat with Kyle and Tom!

 

Trigger Warning: Tom eats some chips.

This week on the show Kyle and Matthew welcome comedian Rachel Wolfson for a chat about cannabis. Talking cannabis is tough cause you don't wanna fall into a bunch of lame stoner cliches. Luckily Rachel makes that easy. Join the trio for a fascinating conversation about the shifting views of cannabis in modern American culture. Plus, we get pretty existential about being the generation that became adults in the wake of 9/11. Yeah, this episode gets deep. Think of it less as a giggly stoner riff sense and more like one of those good deep conversations you have with somebody when you are sitting around sharing a joint. It'll all make sense when you listen. Plus, a nice long intro where Kyle and Burnside catch up. Warning: consumption of this episode may impair your ability to think things aren't rad.

 

Weekly Rads:

 

Kyle – D23 Expo

 

Burnside – Weekly Mad: Skate 3 just had a big update. WHAT ARE YOU UP TO EA!?! WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO US!?! (Weekly rad – He saw the Beach Bum and its a fun movie!)

This week on the show Kyle and Matthew welcome one of Kyle's oldest friends in comedy Josh Meyrowitz. If you are a fan of Roast Battle you are likely familiar with the image of Josh shirtless getting the audience to chant “Battle” on the show. Kyle and Josh chat about their early open mic days and their shared adventures in crippling anxiety. They also talk about Martial Arts movies. Josh is a fan of all things nerdy and we still can't believe we haven't done this as an episode yet. (Honestly, we're still only like 75% sure we haven't done it.) But regardless, this is one of those topics that never gets old and truly we only scratch the surface in two hours so I guess it gives us an excuse to do more episodes on the topic!

But at This Is Rad, we're never gonna leave you high and dry. So Kyle and Burnside sat down in Kyle's backyard and started talking about video games. They also talk about future stuff they wanna do on the podcast. If you are into any of the stuff we're thinking of doing please hit us up because we wanna keep bringing you guys new and interesting stuff because as long as you folks keep listening we're gonna work hard to bring you a quality podcast. Now, I know what you're thinking... “But how did this episode turn out to be over 2 hours long if it's just Kyle and Matt hanging out.” Oh boy, about halfway through this episode things get exciting. Kyle's Mom has a pretty crazy story about the Manson Family. And that leads to stories about dune buggies, boats, parties in the 70's, and a visit to the CIA. Seriously, this one takes some turns and we hope that you enjoy it!
