Oh, and there is a lot of talk about life in the Midwest and how much it seems to confound Kyle's Southern...

Point Break show art Point Break

This Is Rad!

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...

More Episodes

And now for something slightly different. This week, Kyle is sick, two episodes got rescheduled, and we had 24 hours to get an episode recorded and posted. 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!
