This week on the show Kyle and Matthew are joined by the Goods From The Woods (Rivers Langley, Carter Glasscock, and Sam Harter) for a look back at the 2010's. They put together some best of lists for movies, music, TV, video games, books, comics, and a whole lot of other stuff. The last ten years had a pretty profound effect on everyone on this episode and they explore where they were 10 years ago versus now. It's a long one but it's a heck of a ride. Oh, they also talk about Cats for a while up top.   Instead of a weekly rad this week we ask that you donate to the family of Matthew's...

Public Service show art Public Service

This Is Rad!

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome Brandii Grace for a chat about video games, getting involved in politics, and changing the world around you. Now before you go screaming into the night at the idea of an episode about politics, let us assure you there is plenty of talk about Star Trek, video games, and other fun stuff as well. But yes, we do talk about the political process and Brandii's story of getting into pubic service and running for office is inspiring. She brings the process to a human level and helps you see what running for office looks like for someone who is not a billionaire. If...

The Decembrists show art The Decembrists

This Is Rad!

This week, Kyle and Matthew welcome back the always wonderful Joe Kaye for a chat about a band that has taken their fair share of derision over the years, The Decembrists. Now, if you are scoffing, give the episode a listen. Joe does a FANTASTIC job explaining what makes the band one of his all time favorites. Kyle shares his journey from hating the band to being a fan of their work. It's neat sometimes when we get to do an episode where we give something a second chance. And even if you're not convinced by the end, we got some pretty good tangents too.   Weekly Rads:   Kyle and Matt...

Making Stuff and Not Giving Up show art Making Stuff and Not Giving Up

This Is Rad!

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome director and one third of The People's Collective Malik McCrea for a chat about making stuff. All parties involved agree that making stuff is pretty rad. Whatever your venture, the satisfaction of looking at something you made is intoxicating. But for every high high in making stuff there are also plenty of low lows. It comes with the territory. But one of the most important things you can remember is that when things are down, you can't give up because you never know what's going to happen next. There's also a lot of talk about movies and Malik shares is...

Mad Max: Fury Road show art Mad Max: Fury Road

This Is Rad!

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome writer Sarah Landauer and artist Alston Novak to chat about one of the greatest films of modern cinema, 2015's Mad Max: Fury Road. Sarah and Alston are the creative team behind the digital comic “Glitch” which happens to be a story that takes place in a post apocalyptic desert wasteland. Turns out, Mad Max has had some influence on their work but not in some of the ways you might imagine. This episode is fun. Everybody nerds out pretty hard. We get into anime. We get into making comics. We get into eating lizards. It gets wild. Enjoy the ep and go support...

Bone Collecting show art Bone Collecting

This Is Rad!

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome artist and comedian Andrea Guzzetta to the show for a conversation about Andrea's fascinating history with collecting bones. We learn some of the finer points of bone collecting and also learn some pretty cool art you can make out of bones and hair. We also explore the pros and cons of art school. Plus Kyle and Andrea bond over finding a creative voice that feels true even if it doesn't match the perception someone might have of you on first impression. Oh, and there is a lot of talk about life in the Midwest and how much it seems to confound Kyle's Southern...

Rap Flow show art Rap Flow

This Is Rad!

This week Kyle and Matthew welcome Josh Shakespeare to the show for a conversation about what makes a rappers flow distinct. They compare the distinct stylistic flow different artists bring to their music and compare it to the way comedians tell jokes. I bet nobody saw that comparison coming! They also reminisce about the heyday of Meltdown. If you like comedy-centric episodes, this one is your jam.   Weekly Rads:   Kyle – Doctor Sleep (movie)   Burnside – Watchman (tv show)   check out Laura's new designs on TeePublic!!!   Guys, Kyle's new album Absolute Terror is...

More Episodes

Pizza in the morning. Pizza in the evening. Pizza at supper time. When pizza is the subject of your podcast, you can have pizza anytime. Did I do that for the last pizza episode? I was gonna check but then I didn't and now here we are. This week on the show Kyle and Matthew welcome writer/comedian Matt Dwyer to the show. Besides being one of the darkest and funniest writers Kyle knows he's also become an excellent pizza chef in the last few years. Matt hails from Chicago and after our amazing episode with Steve Simone about proper New York pizza we felt it was only fair to get the second city's view on making a proper pizza. We get into some intresting territory about the lesser known approaches to pizza and Kyle learns to gain an appreciation for proper Chicago style deep dish pizza. If you are like him and have your doubts this is worth a listen. This is probably not a good episode to listen to while hungry cause it's mostly us just talking about how delicious food is. We also get into some great tangents about Tom Waits, Jerry Stahl, and the evils of corporate culture. Yeah, on the pizza episode.

 

Note: We tried an experiment with the way we opened the episode. We started and then Kyle realized that we could do the intro and the episode as one track (less editing!). So if you seem real confused, we were just trying something for the sake of trying it, fear not, we'll be back to normal format next week. Order shall be preserved and there will again be peace and freedom in the galaxy....
