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.

This Is Rad!

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...

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.

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.  ...

That's because This is Rad has gotten itself an official Game Master: Game Master Ryan.

More Episodes

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!
