Dan’s Laugh is the Best

I love this show for many reasons, but the surprise here is Dan’s laugh. When something his guest says cracks him up he lets loose an easy, vigorous guffaw that makes me laugh too and lifts my spirits. Especially on a tough day, this show’s lighthearted spirit and unexpected forays into the world of food and eating make me smile. Thank you, Sporkful team.
