This week we welcome Sheila McMenamin: tree person at The Baltimore Tree Trust and moonlighting comedian at BIG Improv! Our goal was to talk about urban gardening and the flora of native ecosystems. We actually did some of that, but we discussed killer birds, walrus vaginas, and goat semen (like, a lot of goat semen). It's informative?

Carlos Raba: Scandal! Intrigue! Tacos!

5/15/2019
More
Chef Carlos Raba makes the best goddamn Mexican food we have ever tasted. We have eaten at beachside shacks and late night-only trucks and Michelin-starred restaurants -- nothing comes close to what we've tasted at his restaurant/mezcaleria Clavel. Better than his food is the story of how he got here -- murder, corruption, political asylum and Whole Foods are all major plot points! We also talked about Noah hurting his balls in a parasailing rig, because we try to lower the bar just a little...

Daniel Gritzer: Sheep Testes, Kalimbas & Horse Domination with the Culinary Director of Serious Eats

5/8/2019
More
Holy sh*t guys, this is a good one. Probably our best, ever. Maybe not just our best, because it may very well be THE best food podcast episode in all of existence. We knew inviting Daniel Gritzer into the studio was going to make for great radio -- he's the culinary director of Serious Eats, a chef with serious pedigree and experience, and a damn good time of a man on Twitter and in real life. We sat down ready to have an argument, but it was impossible once we asked Daniel to tell us a...

Some Ol'Bulls*t: Pizza, Trader Joe's, 'Ronis and Kodak Black's Areolas

4/12/2019
More
This week we let 39 year old Evan and 19 year old Noah start the show, and they chose to spend ten minutes talking about boobs vs. butts before seguing into the hot topic of "nipple sizes". We let your sidekicks spread their wings a little, and this is how they repay us. There's plenty of quibbling about Trader Joe's, giving up pizza, bagel sandwiches, and other terribly non-important stuff that will act as a lovely distraction to the fact that society as we know it is collapsing.

Join us as we discuss (and argue about) the ice cream science, price of vanilla, how to juice meat, flavor inspiration, Raven-Symone, waffle cones, library...
