NYC Pizza Episode - 17 STARS!!

This episode, as with every MIOP episode, has me cackling but the Transformers Movie reference from Chris Ying just took it to the highest level.
Keep it up guys and Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong!

New favourite

This has quickly become one of my favourite podcasts!

Of pepper and spice, and all things nice...

Gents, have 5 stars for the generally great content, conversation and company, and have 5 more stars for defending the honour of British cookery! It all goes pear shaped from there though... after all that good work, a shameful minus 6 stars for the poor grasp of the history of spices in Europe 🙄 only about 1000 years out...

Can you redeem yourselves I wonder?

PS. Not sure spices made the food better though, probably used to mask spoiling meat, in the same way spice was used in perfumes to cover the smell of the over ripe nobles who ate it
