Ep. 145 - Kale Origin of Speakcies

    • Arts

In this very, very special episode, learn the origin of Steve's hated nemesis. That's right, the true story of the real Devil's weed, the cabbage of Cthulhu, the pubes of Satan - Kale!
Scott and Steve discuss the etymology of the word, it's connection to Pizza Hut and Scotland, if it truly possesses its touted health benefits, and how one person (spoiler: It's not John Cougar Mellencamp) is responsible for transforming this evil garnish from the “poor man’s spinach” to a "superfood" consumed by white women everywhere.
Also, keeping with the food theme, on the "Origin of Eatcies" segment, the guys play "Food Mascots: Real or Fake," where you will learn about the imagined romantic connection between Aunt Jemima and the Quaker Oats guy. And, perhaps most importantly, is kale from the Devil? There is only one way to learn the answer.
