Ep 8 - Burgers!

28Jun09

Ubiquitous and delicous, burgers can usually satisfy at least two out of the important three: fast, cheap and good.  But how far can we push the humble hamburger to be fast?  We discuss our favourite burgers in this episode, and how a good thing can go bad when you expect too much out of it.

As a mea culpa for the 100 Mile Podcast of Glitchiness -3 (Cursed Item), here is Pubcast Numero Zwei a little bit early!

Optional drinking game: take a sip/shot of your choice whenever one of us says, "Robert Simpson Brewing Company" or Tracy says "fantastic".

For some reason, the FTP uploader had a hiccup the first time we posted this, and only 10 minutes was posted.  Now, behold, the full 41 minutes of banter, the way it was intended!

It's not that kind of diet! Main Entry: 1di·et           Listen to the pronunciation of 1diet Pronunciation: \ˈdī-ət\Function:noun Etymology:Middle English diete, from Anglo-French, from Latin diaeta, from Greek diaita, literally, manner of living, from diaitasthai to lead one's life Date:13th century. 1 a: food and drink regularly provided or consumed b: habitual nourishment c: the kind and amount of food prescribed for a person or animal for a special reason d: a regimen of eating and drinking sparingly so as to reduce one's weight <going on a diet>2: something provided or experienced repeatedly <a diet of Broadway shows and nightclubs — Frederick Wyatt>

In this case, the 100 Mile Diet is about definitions 1a, b, c and 2, not necessarily the most common use of the word today in relating to a regimen to shed pounds.  There are a LOT of good points about the idea, and in this podcast the Zwei Fat Chicks review the book by James MacKinnon and Alisa Smith and discuss the good, the impractical and a few ways to adapt the idea if needed.

Ok, so we're testing out the feature of podbean where we can archive old shows to free up space for new shows.  If you have any problems accessing the Black Bear Ep or the Breakfast Ep, please let us know ASAP by e-mailing us: zweifatchicks@gmail.com

Thanks for your help!

Stay tuned for the next episode featuring the 100 Mile Diet and discussing local eating - available at midnight on Monday!

Looking back at this episode, we forgot to even really discuss the origins of the carnival.  But, it's probably nothing you haven't already seen on the History Channel.  In case you missed every show that's been on about Mardi Gras, check out this great article from Wikipedia about the different carnivals and festivals of the world: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnival.
