This Is Rad!

This week Kyle and Matthew chat with game designer Andy Ashcraft about porno comics. Comcis about people having sex are as old as comic books themselves and for decades they have existed as an art-form unto themselves. Andy gives some great recommendations for anyone interested in stepping past the saloon doors in the back of the comic book world. Plus, you get to listen to three people who are refreshingly laze fair about intimate encounters with mythological creatures. Plus, we talk about game design, life in tabletop gaming, and 80's Teen Titians.     Weekly Rads: Kyle – Giant...

This Is Rad!

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome comedian Carmen Morales for a chat about the new frontier of micro-dose medical treatments. While it's easy to think about psychedelics as something you buy in the parking lot of a Phish concert but studies are showing that small amounts of certain types of psychedelics are helping to treat issues like depression and bi polar disorder. There is also a nice chunk of chat about psychology in joke writing and the weird places innovation can sometimes take things.   Weekly Rads: Kyle – Cobra Kai (again) (show) Matthew – finishing Seinfeld and jackass dvd...

This Is Rad!

Oh boy folks, what an adventure. Our dear sweet Matthew Burnside had to step out of the ep moments before we began to record. Originally this was gonna be our classic end of the year round up with the boys from The Goods from the Woods. But Carter, Sam, and Burnside all had to step away so what you're getting is Kyle Clark and Rivers Langly doing what they do best: Talking. They recount their TV, music, and movies of the year. No top 10 lists. No epic retrospectives. Just two buds looking back on a crazy year and chatting about stuff they liked. A fun low key way to end a very weird...

We're moving on up! This week Kyle, Matthew and Producer Natalie sit down with comedian Ron Babcock to discuss Architecture for FARCH! (Or should we say, Farchitecture?) Ron talks about how growing up in Scranton, Pennsylvania, gave him a lifelong appreciation for architecture and how urban exploring an abandoned hotel almost gave him a torn anus. Other topics include house doilies, immersion blenders, tiny houses, abandoned theme parks, and they go gaga for Googie! Check out Ron's work over at heyron.com!
