This Is Rad!

Release Date: 07/28/2021

Wu Tang Clan show art Wu Tang Clan

This Is Rad!

This week Kyle and Matthew discuss a topic that ain't nothing to [email protected] with. They are joined by one of Rad's favorite guests, the one and only Ed Greer for a rousing discussion about the music and the cultural impact of The Wu Tang Clan. What kind of impact does the idea of rappers as super heroes do to a young person's brain? What are the entry points for getting into Wu Tang and what are the essential albums? All this and several hours more will get discussed as we step into the slums of Shaolin and enter the 36 chambers...   Weekly Rads: Kyle - Cobra Kai (show) Matthew - Code Red...

Batman (movies) show art Batman (movies)

This Is Rad!

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome comedian Joshua Snyder for a conversation about the many cinematic version of Batman. From movies to TV to Batman shows without Batman, we explore just why the Batman has been the comic book character who seems to adapt best across media.

This Is Rad!

This is a very special week for This Is Rad! After 18 months over zoom or outside Kyle, Matt, and Laura return home. Well, technically Matt and Laura have been LITERALLY home this whole time but as far as This Is Rad! goes we record in Matt and Laura's living room for the first time since March 2020. We couldn't be happier that our first guest back is the one and only Jenny Chalikian. While a Battlestar episode is FOR SURE on the horizon, Jenny is solo this round talking about the wonderful world of Tank Girl. From comic to movie to cultural icon, we celebrate one of the cooler comic books...

Muay Thai show art Muay Thai

This Is Rad!

This week Burnside is out (but SUPER alive) so Kyle has a one on one chat with his friend and longtime Muay Thai fighter, Mike Satumbaga about a life in martial arts. In the last year Kyle has started training and has a million questions to ask Mike. Mike spent several years as a competitive fighter while keeping it secret from his friends and family. He explains why he kept his identity as a fighter on the DL and some of the annoying side effects of someone learning you're a fighter. They talk post fight euphoria, nerds taking over sports, plus they get into their shared love of Filipino...

These can range from the self indigent to completely brilliant and we try to highlight some of the ones where we think they work. We also chat about the state of DC Comic movies, book vs movie adaptations, and try a fun snack!   Weekly Rads: Kyle, Matthew, and Laura - The Suicide Squad (movie) Robert - Outshine Mango and Tajin frozen juice bar (food)   Tales from an Analog Future issue 1 (Early Access Edition) Get it HERE:    Go to  and subscribe to...

90's and 00's Pop Punk show art 90's and 00's Pop Punk

This Is Rad!

This week Burnside is on assignment so Kyle is solo chatting with comedian Pete Buchbauer. Pete and Kyle were on a show recently and figured out Pete is friends with Kyle's cousin's husband. Sure it's a bit of a Spaceballs level relation but still neat. They chat about 90's and 00's Pop Punk. Kyle's been vocal about hating this genre but still knows a lot about it. They largely explore the origins of pop punk, it's rise to prominence, and its evolution during the early 00's. Plus, they share their experiences playing in bands and the influence of regional scenes on Pop Punk's evolution. Then...

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...  ...
