Calling something “the best” is definitely a bold move -- but at Thrillist, we kind of do it for a living. On this new podcast from iHeartRadio, Thrillist Senior Writer/Producer Wil Fulton is joined by a rotating cast of Thrillist editors, writers, and contributors who spend their days covering the best of the best in food, travel, and entertainment. Together, they’ll answer the big questions of our time: “What’s the Best Way to Kill a Hangover?” “What’s the Scariest Movie Ever?” “What’s the Best Thing to Order at Taco Bell?” Our team of experts will suss out the apex of each topic, and along the way cover some highlights of “the rest” (basically, anything that’s not the best). Look, you don’t have to agree with us… but you should probably listen. It’s like all your favorite bar debates are actually going to be settled, once and for all.
