    After a vintage ‘Dave Chang Show’ solo intro and a bicoastal dining update, Dave ushers in Chris and Noelle for a rapid-fire run through the rest of the Required Eating checklist—featuring thoughts on Chinese herbal digestifs, premium nighttime cereal, restaurant economics, scallion hyperinflation, Noelle’s calamari marketwatch, ordering three-quarters of a sandwich, 108-hour beet preparations, Noelle’s mom’s kare kare, inadequate vampire camouflage, and the ever-spreading scourge of Potemkin Biscoff.

    Multiverse Dave in Search of the Sasquatch | My Opinion Is Fact

    After last week’s Dave-induced derailment, it’s time at last for the gang to relay their Required Eating reports—and suddenly, everyone’s putting up numbers. Also encountered along the way: misleading fish marketing, a diner deep dive, Bobby Van’s, Noelle the Fanpire, 10 a.m. mozzarella sticks, a delightful eggplant parm, Hawaiian-style rib eye, a belated lemon-pepper defense, Elite Yelper Chris Ying, a rookie visit to Hillstone, the magic of Pierre Gagnaire, and Dave’s application for 'Iron Chef.'

    Unreasonable and Radical Ideas With Lucas Mann

    Steakhouses, Dishwashers, and Keeping Up With the Late-Night Coffee Drinkers | My Opinion Is Fact

    The MOIF team reconvenes to review the Required Eating challenges handed down last week—and what was meant to be a finale turns into more of a cliffhanger. But then, Dave, Chris, and Noelle dust themselves off and dive into: celebrity hotel-room cooking, Dave’s Batman rankings, a disappointing shrimp cocktail, bacon-to-lettuce ratios, when to wake up, dreams of hyper-efficiency, the Michael Pollan effect, feeling like a Quaker, taking a rocket ship to Hell for 20 minutes, Dave’s grade in Friendship 102, and the old bait-and-switch.

Plus: haircut narcolepsy, pan de coco, Dave making Jamaican food, heirloom Hot Pockets, putting bread on a pedestal, pulling up to the retirement community with the wood-fired pizza oven, open-crumb shots, Brian Scalabrine, and an honest assessment of Chris’s pasta salad.

Fizzil AF ,

If I could rate this podcast Spinal Tap style…

…my score would go up to eleven stars. I love love love these guys and the variety of the content is joyous. From MOIFs to world cups to ask Dave and Dad chat also featuring such wide ranging guest contributors too? I laugh a lot, learn a lot and love when each episode drops. Thanks guys. Top rating from this Londoner 👌🏼

Like whisky, milk & honey!

Melbourne schooled tastebuds, listening from London. This show pitches from hilarious to fascinating to down right comforting. I’m guessing Dave is the honey, Chris the whisky & Isaac the milk? Great alone, banging together. Essential. Slightly questionable attitude to pineapple & beets & eggs in burgers, but dope nonetheless. 5 stars!
