Larry Olmsted is the author of the book ‘Real Food/Fake Food: Why You Don’t Know What You’re Eating & What You Can Do About It.’
The guys start with news of a major development in Staten Island food services. This leads to a discussion of price gouging at bagel deli. They then chime in on Bodega Boxes and how an idea of that magnitude even gets off the ground. This week was sports movie talk, baseball specifically. Social media had lots of opinions which were fine and so did Chris which was not fine. ****Spoiler Alert**** They finish up with a debate on spoilers and how much is too much? Chris closes the pod with an unbelievable story from the set of Cloverfield.
Jo Firestone is a comedian, writer/performer for ‘The Tonight Show’ Creator of ‘Punderdome 3000,’ has a new podcast called ‘Dr. Gameshow’ coming to the Earwolf network later this October, and this past Friday had a half hour stand-up episode premiere on Comedy Central.
Dan Colonna, Dave Grima, and Mark Magro host the ‘Dinosaur Machines Gameclub’ podcast where they do book-club style reviews of indie video games.
The guys eat breakfast together again and are varying degrees of sleep deprived. They talk non-specifically about their favorite meals in NY and too specifically about their results of a Buzzfeed Quiz. They move onto season 3 of Rick and Morty and whether or not the shows more existential premise is better. Joe and Chris finish up with a conversation about how fantasy sports impacts their real life fandom and talk way too much about their own fantasy league. Also, Joe lets you know how to send in corrections on stuff they get wrong.
Chris Cogswell holds a PhD in Chemical Engineering and hosts the popular Mad Scientist Podcast.
The guys have a special guest, friend/nemesis of the pod, Joe’s sister. They talk about NY centric food and then wonder why millennials are obsessed with avocados. This is followed by a discussion of every kind of cheese ever created. Chris watched MTV’s the Challenge Dirty 30 so the gang gets deep into the intricacies of that and wonder why anyone watches this show at all. Finally, they finish up with a mostly civil discussion about another lost year for the Mets.
Lizzy Goodman is an author whose latest book ‘Meet Me In The Bathroom’ is the first major book to document the NYC music scene and culture from 2001-2011.
The guys spend the entire episode going off the rails and subsequently trying to get back on. They start with a discussion about the color of Chris’ nacho steak and then remember this isn’t a visual medium. They follow up with a discussion of your favorite Chinese food items and try to create the perfect take out Chinese order. They awkwardly transition to discussion the Cornhole championships on ESPN but that devolved into giggling like school children because there is no way to discuss cornhole without it sounding overtly sexual. They end with Tv recommendations, one that Chris hated and one that Damian hated.
