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.
