The podcast about reviewing grocery stores that nobody asked for!
Foodtown of Bushwick
Rod heads solo to the Foodtown in Bushwick for some unexpected surprises! Topics include moralizing about how you should buy and peel your own garlic, soup (again), and a hot take on Cap'n Crunch's Oops All Berries that will stop you in your tracks.
Food Emporium Midtown
Rod goes directly from therapy to the Food Emporium in Midtown Manhattan to discover one of the worst floor layouts Cleanup on Aisle Fun! has ever seen. This week we learn something about barbecue sauce, gaping holes in Rod's understanding of certain facets of pop culture, and dissect an overtly sexual brand of ice cream.
Billy's Market Place with Cait Bladt
Cleanup on Aisle Fun! returns with a vengeance for Season Two! Rod and guest Cait Bladt (Politics Editor at The Tylt/Rod's roommate) head to Billy's in Ridgewood for a review. This episode tackles beer elitism, edible cookie dough, and a story about Rod eating a famous person's leftover cheeseburger. Rod and Cait get aggressively midwestern, scream over each other, and (due to lack of food and overcaffienation) truly descend into madness, culminating in a horrible discussion about pissing in public, so enjoy that ya freaks. Please consume Kerrygold Butter and RX bars and tell them to pay attention to this podcast.
Harlem Fairway with Jake Cornell
Rod is joined by comedian and improvisor Jake Cornell (@jakewcornell) to discuss the Fairway in Harlem. Rod and Jake discuss shopping strategy, Vermont, grocery stores in the U.K, what exactly is going on at the bottom of the ocean, and classism. There are also people singing opera in the background, which classes up the joint a little bit. Follow along on Instagram: @cleanuponaislefun
Morton Williams Park Avenue
Rod take a late evening trip to neon paradise Morton Williams, a Manhattan staple. The #RodforKerrygold campaign continues, and the Cleanup on Aisle Fun! Courtship Challenge is introduced!
Gristede's 8th and 22nd
New York "landmark" Gristede's gets the Cleanup on Aisle Fun! treatment this week as Rod records an episode in the wee hours of the morning. Visual aesthetics are criticized, among many other things.
