A podcast about condiments. Emily Elias and Tom Wiggins ask, if you were trapped on a desert island, which 5 dips would you take with you.
Ketchup is the OG condiment but how did it get on our shelves? Do you keep your red sauce in the cupboard or in the fridge? And Emily and Tom refuse to see eye-to-eye over the great glass vs. plastic bottle debate.
Tom and Emily debate ketchup's white cousin: mayonnaise. Why do so many people find mayo gross? What is the dip's connection to the Titanic? And! We myth bust whether or not it is OK to make mayo while on your period.
It's brown. It's sauce. It's brown sauce. Tom introduces Emily to his favourite condiment and a taste test ensues that leaves some apologetic results.
Tom & Emily explore the history of the festive condiment. Cranberry Sauce comes in a can and a jar, but which is best? Plus: Emily sends a lot of emails to get the true history of the Christmas sandwich. And Tom points out things that happened in 2005.
Tom and Emily tackle the most feminist condiment: English Mustard. Tom asks whether you should eat english mustard with a pop tart and Emily prepares to sew mustard seeds into her wedding dress.
Tom and Emily debate the status of guacamole as a condiment. We learn about the family that lost out on an avocado fortune. Emily has beef with 'Saved by the Bell' star Tiffani Thiessen. And! There is a woman named Pamela Wang who found the world's largest avocado. Tom can't handle it.
Make sure you Ketchup. This one really cuts the mustard.
In an ocean of banality, this series dedicated to condiments, and their ultimate positioning on a beach in the Pacific should satisfy even the most jaded of listener.
Listen as Britain’s #7 Dudley Moore lookalike and his Canadian friend argue over not only *what* constitutes a condiment, but which five are their favourites.
But of all the dips in the sea, which will be number one? Only time will tell...
Where’s the mayo
Would’ve given 5 stars but there isn’t enough mayo love! It’s delish!
I’m more of a gravy fan but WOW!!
This hooked me in from the very first moment. I both learned something and accidentally laughed in the face of a stranger on the bus, which I think is the sign of any great podcast.
