    Episode 505: Apricots

    Today we wonder what to do with Apricots while debating generational sexcapades, the invention of dried pineapple, and when exactly were the ancient times. We get down and dirty with some fertile crescent situations and lots of geography and etymology. Probably too much. Rated NSFJ.

Fav podcast of all time

I’ve been listening for ages, have listened to every single episode, and look forward to new episodes every week. Is it weird that Molly and Matthew feel like my friends? They’re hilarious and authentic, and I really love their friendship. I also sometimes learn stuff about food. This show has really gotten me through some rough times over the past few years. Keep up the good work, you two (and Abby)!

Favorite blind podcast subscription

Subscribed to a random assortment of food podcasts to improve my cooking, this is the only one I still listen to. 4 years later my cooking improvements includes how to chop an onion and that’s about it. I’m pleased with the laughs to learning ratio. Very amusing, super silly. My go to when someone asks to put a podcast on.
