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

    The Sopranos

    The Sopranos

    In this supersized episode Kyle and Matt welcome Fifi Dosch to talk about the HBO series The Sopranos. Its a nice mix of gushing like super fans and explaining what it is about the show that puts it consistently in the conversation for the greatest TV show of all time. We have spoiler warnings as the episode progresses so you can jump out as needed but for those willing to brave nearly 4 hours, please enjoy!
     
    Note: Kyle's mic is kinda hot. The volume got turned up on a zoom stand up show and he forgot to turn it back down. It's back down now. Sorry about that.

    Kang-ho Song

    Kang-ho Song

    This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by James D Hillmer for a chat about Korean actor Kang-ho Song. James is currently in a doctoral program studying Korean culture and suggested using Kang-ho Song to explore the world of Korean cinema. In the last few decades, Korean cinema has risen to international prominence. While early breakouts like Oldboy or The Host appealed to genre fans, the 2019 best picture win for Parasite shows just how much impact Korean cinema is having around the world. If you're unfamiliar with Korean cinema or saw Parasite and want to see more, this isn't a bad place to start.

    Starcraft and Old School PC Gaming

    Starcraft and Old School PC Gaming

    This week Kyle and Matthew are joined by comedian and one third The Goods from the Woods, Carter Glasscock to chat about Starcraft and the general pleasure of 90's/00's PC gaming. Carter is no expert in Starcraft and we will definitely return to the subject in greater detail in an episode down the line but for this week we had a great chat about old school PC gaming in all it's glory. It ultimately becomes a fun chat about video games with some wild tangents as we go. A real thisisrad-ass ep of This is Rad.

    The Magic School Bus (with an emphasis on the CD-Rom Games)

    The Magic School Bus (with an emphasis on the CD-Rom Games)

    This week we continue our makeshift “Summer of Indoors” series with a visit from past guest and friend of the show Alexis Quasarano to chat about the classic children's science education series The Magic School Bus. But we're not just talking about Miss Frizzle and her students adventures through the body and into outer space in book form. We're not just chatting about the TV show and it's banger of a theme song. But today, to fit with our theme, we are looking at The Magic School Bus through the lens of their 90's CD-Rom games. Lot going on this episode, but a good time is had by all.
     
    Weekly Rads:
    Kyle - Color Changing light bulbs (light source)
    Matt - High Score (documentary)
    Alexis - A Frasier Bong and Niles Bong (bongs)
