They talk the early New Yorker Cartoons, the original series, and many of the other forms but this is a group of kids raised in the 90's so they go OFF about the movie. Addams Family and Addams Family Values are all time favorite films for everybody on the episode.

This is a very special week for This Is Rad! After 18 months over zoom or outside Kyle, Matt, and Laura return home. Well, technically Matt and Laura have been LITERALLY home this whole time but as far as This Is Rad! goes we record in Matt and Laura's living room for the first time since March 2020. We couldn't be happier that our first guest back is the one and only Jenny Chalikian.
