    Episode 482: Rice Cakes

    Episode 482: Rice Cakes

    Today's show is shot from a gun and involves much casual interweaving. As we discuss rice cakes, we wonder if this is a diet thing and is there a top and a bottom? With the help of niblicks, metal depressions and dewlaps we reach a conclusion on how to know if your kid is a serial killer and what is a legit snack. Neither None nor All.

Like a smoothie for your spirit!

Molly and Matthew are such a hoot - Spilled Milk has become a sanity-saving listen through the craziness of the last year! Sending a huge thanks for the much-needed dose of levity!

Sanity-saving and a pure joy

I’ve known about this podcast for many years peripherally through Molly’s blog, but I’m a more recent listener. I feel it’s like being a kid listening in on your cool older brother & sister or cousins jabbering away at the kitchen table about different foods they like/dislike/trying for the first time, being silly, sometimes making snide remarks at each other, and wailing/ranting with/at each other, and it’s just one of the best, purely joyful things to listen to for me.

I listen to it on the car while commuting nearly every day, and sometimes during work if I am doing more manual things, and it’s always the highlight of my day. I learn cool facts and history about food products and ingredients (although that’s almost secondary to the point of the show), and often laugh out loud at their antics. I love hearing Molly laughing until she’s out of breath and her tiny shrieks trying to recover, Matthew’s boisterous laugh in which he throws his head back away from the mic so it’s heard in the background, Matthew’s eager “yes yes!”, Molly’s scolding “Matthew! Shut up!” when he keeps interrupting her with more and more jokes.... I could go on. I also like that they do their best to be culturally sensitive (and respond to feedback if they cross the line), and honestly, it’s nice to know even food writers were picky eaters as kids and still have strong food preferences and dislikes.

Thank you for creating this show, Molly and Matthew. It makes me wish I could be your friend in real life (but that would be a bit too weird), but I feel like I sort of vicariously am part of your friend group through listening to your show, and that speaks to how genuine and relatable you guys make the show for your listeners. Thank you.
