Other side of the tracks

Other Side of the Tracks is a long-form show hosted by Rafe Williams and Steve Raines. We are all travelers in this world - poets, prophets, liars, preachers, sinners and saints. Everyone has a journey, everyone has a story, and everyone has a truth. Rafe and Steve are joined each week by a new guest to chat about a specific topic. Take a trip to the other side of the tracks as a couple of knock-around guys take an honest, raw, and hilarious look into the lives of the truly authentic passengers of earth. No format. No filter. Just interesting people talking about things that interest them.

Live from Del Close Marathon, winners of the nationwide improv4humans contest Dad Van (Rafe Williams, Eric Christensen, Ben Lyons, and Melissa Darch) join Matt Besser along with Tim Meadows, Horatio Sanz, Chad Carter, and Shaun Diston! They take audience suggestions that inspire scenes about physical homesickness, a firefighter who wants to hang back, and a 4th grader who’s paranoid about assassination. Plus, a ghost can’t take off the sheet he died in and a visit to the seashell emporium brings back painful memories.
