Eating Outside show art Eating Outside

This Is Rad!

On our next installment of Summer of Rad 2021, we are joined by Rivers Langley and Joe Raines for a fun cookout. Each year our dear friend Rivers makes us a summer meal and we eat and hang out. This year he made Cubano sandwiches and turnip greens and Laura made cornbread. We discuss what went into making it all. WARNING: if you hate people eating on mic, either skip this ep OR fast forward an hour and you should be safe. Beyond food we also chat about the new Space Jam, some nerdy comedy talk, and the TV series Love Island. Plus, Kyle and Rivers do a LOT of quotes from Jurassic Park...  ...

Kyle and Matthew sit down for another round of listener questions. Now... I know what you're thinking: “Hey weren't Matthew and Kyle supposed to do this episode IN PERSON!? What kind of liars are you jerk faces?” And that is a reasonable question phrased very fairly. We have a reason. It's pretty funny. Go give the ep a listen. You might have a chuckle. The rest of the ep is fun as well, digital as it may have been...   Tales from an Analog Future issue 1 Is OUT TODAY!!!!
