    Bite Size: Red Rooster's Chicken Waffle Cones

    Hot. Juicy. Cheesy. Larger than expected.

    These are just some of the words that have been used to describe the hosts of Cruel and Unusual Nourishment. This week they go where others dare not tread and try what is basically popcorn chicken in an ice cream cone.

    Also, Adam barely escapes with his life from a run-in with the supernatural.

    Things are heating up as Adam and Zac continue their Summer Series* with a little fire and ice, if ya know what I mean. A little salty and sweet, if you catch my drift. A little iced cream and potato chips, if you're picking up what I'm putting down. As if all this wasn't enough, the boys are joined by local podcaster and beer aficionado Mike Jeffcott so I hope you're happy.

    *may just be a scheduling coincidence and not actually a thing...

Came for the snacks, stayed for the tea

Long time fan of your culinary work, but where has this juicy fanfic realness been all my life? Bite Size: Arnott’s Flavoured Milk just raised the nourishment bar. Expecting a tasty side dish called Cruel and Unusual Shippings with weekly readings, please and thank you.

Wow just wow!

I wish I could rate this poddy 11/10. Pink. The Restaurant. episode was hilarious and the guest you had on that episode sound very beautiful and intelligent (I am a total stranger and have never met Alicia or Kit in my entire life) wow
