This Is Rad!

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...

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.

Stuart Gordon show art Stuart Gordon

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. 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.  ...
