    The Pandemic Chronicles : Chickweed Fritters

    The Pandemic Chronicles : Chickweed Fritters

    So Shep has been going on about how chickweed is a "nutrient dense super-food" any time Ursula weeds the garden. And then a recipe came across a local mailing list for "chickweed fritters" and I knew the thing to do was give them the recipe, press record, and get as far away as possible. This is the result. 
    No people were harmed in the production of this podcast. It might have been easier if we were.

    Pandemic Chronicles 1 : Casserole

    Pandemic Chronicles 1 : Casserole

    Shepherd and Ursula made a casserole. They called this "F**k it, we're making Casserole" but they don't post the episodes, so too bad.
    Anyway, this is what they're doing for social isolation. Send help for the rest of us.

    Episode 298 - Self-Isolating Lambs

    Episode 298 - Self-Isolating Lambs

    It has been a week of self isolation, and what do we have? Beer, pizza, dried squid, and spicy dried mini-shrimp! And that is just the beginning this week, since we have a whole lot of stuff to get through before the world ends! 
    We'll keep doing this even in a pandemic, because We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

    Episode 297 - Ham and Magic Underwear

    Episode 297 - Ham and Magic Underwear

    This started out as "we have eaten a lot of ham so we will do a short non-episode filler show" and then  things kind of got out of hand. So we ate some chips, drank some beverages, and an hour and a half later, here we are. We hope you enjoy it, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

    Episode 296 - Cola Candy Horror

    Episode 296 - Cola Candy Horror

    It's a new year, but the same old show where we eat things that are, for the most part, better left un-eaten. We have multiple types of cola-flavored candy, sour apple pop-rocks, multiple breakfast cereals, and the horror of all horrors, DURIAN MOCHI.
    All that and more as we head toward the jiggly extravaganza that is episode 300, when We Eat It, So You Don't Have To!

    Episode 295 - English Breakfast

    Episode 295 - English Breakfast

    Shepherd was in the mood to cook for us, and had English Beakfasts on her mind, so we woke this morning to the smells of sausage, bacon, fried bread, fried mushrooms, baked beans, and fried tomatoes. Sadly, we could not find a source for black pudding, otherwise we'd have had that too. Of course, we had to have some mimosas as well, because you can't eat all that without a something to wash it down.
    So food, good company, and good discussions when We Eat It, So You  Don't Have To!
    (We're really going to need a new tagline soon...)

A ranting, profane, silly joy every episode

Who knew junk food could be so thought provoking?

Like listening to your friends banter in the kitchen

You guys are delightful and I hope your stomachs endure through many more episodes. Also, I just got around to listening to 224 (the tequila one), cracked up at the Enkidu/Gilgamesh joke, and then got very startled that apparently Ursula knew, through space and time, that I would laugh.

Food for the Ears

“Kevin and Ursula Eat Cheap” is a much longer podcast in which the couple test out a variety of prepackaged instant food and snacks. If you can’t stand the sound of chewing, this podcast isn’t for you. However, the presenters, particularly Ursula, are hilarious in their reviews and so colorful in their language that sitting through these two-hour episodes is a joy. Ursula recently described one food choice as tasting ‘like an independent bookstore.’ The couple often goes on smart, funny tangents that are as entertaining as the food reviews. Running the gamut from ‘healthy’ snacks including organic and gluten free items, to the most basic instant fare, these two food critics are sure to entertain with their common sense wisdom and curmudgeonly wit.
