Father’s Day BONUS! Rad… And Skittles

June 16, 2022

Megan is out of the studio this week, and Steve is joined by his brother, Kevin, who is celebrating his first Father's Day as a new dad! 

To help Kevin celebrate, we let him pick the movie, so this week's Bonus Episode features the classic 1980s BMX racing movie, Rad! 

 The film stars Bill Allen, Lori Loughlin, Talia Shire, Jack Weston and Ray Walston, along with 1984 Olympic gymnastics champion Bart Conner and famously features a dance sequence on BMX bikes!

The film was a box office bomb, grossing $2 million against a budget of $3 million, and received mixed reviews from critics, but found a cult following among kids as a top VHS rental.

Before digging into the film, the guys have some Skittles and talk about their love of candy as kids. Did they love the movie as much as the snack? Were the critics right? Listen to find out!
