More Episodes

For our final installment of Summer of Rad 2022 we find ourselves with just our boys Kyle and Matthew having a little hang. After mulitple guests dropped for a final ep before Burnside left, the boys ended up having an excuse to just bro-down about life, summer, and the pod. Just close your eyes and pretend we're all in Burnside's parents basement trying to avoid the mid-day heat and kicking back.
