With "Foodbeast Presents: Nood Beach" less than a month away, the guys detail what to expect at the Southern California food and music festival. From Snoop Dogg headlining the music side of things, to unique food experiences such as VIP Lobster Bottle Service, and even competitive eating competitions, the beachside festival is sure to be one for the record books. Conversation starts at (01:34).
The next bit of news comes in the form of food delivery services proving to be increasingly troublesome. From recent stories of Door Dash screwing its drivers out of their tips, to GrubHub faking mom & pop websites, the whole business model can be called into question, and the Katchup crew does just that. Conversation starts at (30:49).
With examples of sketchy pay systems, taking advantage of folks in desperate need of a quick buck, these delivery services prove to have problem after problem, but we all play into it.
Geoff gets pretty heated over all these tactics, while Elie feels they're all just waiting for automated cars to take over the human delivery system.
