Deep Dish, Twisted Food History! – Podcast Episode 19: Off-Topic! Super Bowl Spectacular!

Neither of us watch football, but that didn’t stop us from discussing the greatness that is Super Bowl party food!  We also go really off topic with a segment of Poor Taste about perhaps the most spoiled human being on Earth, then bring it all back to food with a dumbfounding Shitty Old Recipe.   

Highlights

  • A brief discussion of cozy cold weather foods inspired by the recent blizzard in NY.  
  • A look at each state’s unique Super Bowl food searches for this year. 
  • The roasting of a spoiled douchebag who’s sad he couldn’t go two Hawaii for the second time in 6 months, during a pandemic. (We had to break out the crying baby sound effect for this one!)
  • A truly baffling Shitty Old Recipe.

Episode 19: Off Topic! Super Bowl Foods By State! Deep Dish: Twisted Food History!

In this off-topic episode of Deep Dish, we look at another Google Trends map which shows some interesting search results from different U.S. states related to what kinda Super Bowl foods they're looking to make! After this, we tear apart an op-ed written by possibly the richest, most spoiled douchebag on Planet Earth, who published an entire article complaining that his vacation to Hawaii, in the middle of a pandemic, had to be cancelled. We finish up with a mind-boggling edition of Shitty Old Recipes which makes up for its short ingredient list by being truly confusing.

Deep Dish, Twisted Food History! – Podcast Episode 15: Off Topic Thanksgiving Food Ranking!

In this off topic episode we’re getting ready for food’s biggest holiday – Thanksgiving!  We’re ranking traditional Thanksgiving foods to determine the best and the worst of the bunch.  No history this episode, just a good old fashioned battle between foods to see who comes out on top.  Which food will reach God tier status?  Which food will be the bottom of the barrel?  Listen now to find out!

Highlights

  • A brief discussion of how Halloween went. 
  • A disagreement over what tier cranberry sauce belongs in.
  • Can we all at least agree that sweet potato casserole is the WORST Thanksgiving food of all time? (Which is sad because sweet potatoes are one of the best vegetables of all time!)
  • A last minute change in the rankings!
  • Another edition of the classic dessert segment Shitty Old Recipes!  This one manages to have Erik almost completely stumped.
