Episode 6: Cereal, Killer

1/14/2019
More
Cereal is a podcast from this American life (sorry Sarah Koenig but cereal is more American than Serial so I'm stealing your elevator pitch). Cereal tells one story - a true story - over the first course of the day, breakfast. Quite literally the Morning Star, cereal follows a hauntingly similar plot arch to that of Lucifer. From humble beginnings created during radical religious-based dietary movements of the latter half of the 1800s, cereal has fallen from a healthy alternative to the...

Episode 5: Holiday Snack Sack Pt. 2

12/21/2018
More
Part 2 of our Holiday Special. We try a disgusting Peppermint Twinkie, classic Christmas Tree Cakes, another Oreo variant (😅), and wash it all down with our pod favorite...Cheerwine Holiday Punch! We also discuss the etymology of localized sprinkle lingo. Post-pod research, it turns out 'Jimmies' probably isn't an euphemism -- but the urban legend has become implanted enough that it's probably best to avoid the term. We've included the Snopes link in the show notes which inspects the origin...

Episode 4: Holiday Snack Sack Pt. 1

The holiday season brings our first guest, Amanda Price Rone, who was nice enough to let us force feed her junk food on her stateside visit. Amanda teaches at a school in the Southeast Asian nation of Myanmar and my guess on how her post-xmas interactions with students go... Students: Amanda, how was your trip back to America? Amanda: I ate my weight in Twinkies and Christmas Tree Cakes. Students: This tracks. 🇺🇸 Part 2 will drop tomorrow (Friday, Dec 20). Special Guest: Amanda Price Rone.

Episode 3: Induced by Oreos

More
Oreo Biscuit Oreo Sandwich Oreo Crème Sandwich Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookie Chaos -- Even Nabisco's naming roadmap for America's favorite cookie can't escape the Second Law of Thermodynamics. We attempt to break the the Guiness Record for blood viscocity as we try a dozen different Oreo variants. This was a tough one to power through. Only made worse by how many Oreos we had to take home after the episode. Also, April rails on vegans. Please send any and all comments to her personal email:...

Episode 2: Of Lay's & Leakage

11/19/2018
More
Before the first episode of EYHO: Eric: Should we censor any bad language for this podcast? April: Yeah maybe let's not cuss since our families may listen to this. During Episode #2: April says 'anal leakage' approx 17 times The above recount of our short-lived existence as a family-friendly podcast can also be used as an analogy for Lay's alternative flavor strategy. Starting innocently enough with the first variant 'Sour Cream & Onion' in the 70's to the peculiarly named 'Numb & Spicy Hot...

Episode 1: Getting Pumpkin Spice Out of the Way

11/2/2018
More
WE'RE HERE Just a few snack fiends who decided to start a podcast to build a biweekly excuse to eat the worst food we can find. Growing through adolescence in the 90's, we were subject to the pinnacle of the junk food onslaught on America's youth. No doubt a non-trivial agent in shaping our adult minds -- primarily through sugar highs and a barrage of dental visits. On our first episode, we dig into the PSL scene storming through October. Probably good to get this one out of the way early,...
