Kyle Clark and Matthew Burnside share their endless love of rad things with the world.

    Disney Afternoon

    Disney Afternoon

    This week Kyle and Matthew welcome nerdmelt family member Lynnette Joy Housky for a chat about Disney's 90's afternoon cartoon line up Disney Afternoon. What they find is that Disney Afternoon is more of a state of mind that a cannon list of shows. But we do talk about Darkwing Duck and Tailspin and Ducktales for a while. So grab an after school snack and hang out.

    Graphic Design

    Graphic Design

    This week the one and only Laura Knight returns to guest co-host because Matthew lost his voice screaming at the Cleveland Browns. But Matthew could not have had better timing because this week Rad welcomes longtime friend to the show Richard Eden for his first ever solo appearances. What subject could these two titians of Rad combine their knowledge for? This episode is one of the rare treats were we have two talented experts chat about their jobs as graphic designers. In the past year as Kyle's been studying visual art, he's learned graphic design is a thing. So take a seat next to Kyle as he uses this opportunity to learn about graphic design from two talented designers. But don't worry, just because this episode has some educational value, don't think we don't go off the rails a few times to side tangent about Supernatural, Canada, and any number of other topics. As Kyle says at the beginning of the ep, this one is a real humdinger.
    Richard has been kind enough to produce a reference list for this episode

    Classical Music (history)

    Classical Music (history)

    This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by music teacher, concert percussionist, and drummer for the incredibly rad band Sad Park, Grant Bubar for a chat about classical music. Grant shares with us how his study of music and working as an orchestral musician has given him an appreciation of classical music and he hopes to share some of what he loves about it with us in the hope that he can make getting into classical music less daunting. We get into the what defines classical music and why the best known composers are best known. Plus Grant gives us a few lesser known or recently rediscovered composers that are starting to be added to the cannon. But, like any good music episode, there is also plenty of talk about modern music, playing music, and the science behind music. We had so much fun with this ep that we will definitely circle back to this later on for a deeper dive into how to listen and what to listen for. If you've never dabble in classical music, this might give you some ways to explore it without feeling totally lost.
     
    Bonus!
    Grant made a spotify playlist so you can explore some of HIS favorite and essential classical pieces:

    As Matt shares on the episode, he recently had a tragic loss of a close family friend and her daughter. The family has set up a gofund me to help her surviving husband and child.

    2020 Year in Radview pt. 2

    2020 Year in Radview pt. 2

    Kyle, Matthew, Rivers, Carter, and Taylor have returned from their pee break and finish their year in radview...
     
    from pt. 1:
    This week Kyle and Matthew banish 2020 back to the hell from whence it came! They do so with the help of Rivers Langly and Carter Glasscock from The Goods from the Woods and Taylor V-H. They discuss the year that was and reminisce about TV, movies, video games, and music that came out. They also share their personal ups and downs over the year and how they all learned and adapted to some real sudden changes in plans for the year. They also share things they are grateful for and look at how they learned and grew through this experience.
     
    We split this ep into 2 parts because five hours seemed like a bit much for one episode even by our standards....
     
    This Is Rad is grateful to our listeners for letting us be a part of your 2020. From Kyle, Matthew, and Laura, along with the rest of the TIR family, thank you.
