Recorded at the Cards Against Humanity podcast studio in Chicago, Alex Cox joins Truj and Brian! RX Bars, slam poetry, and, of course, shower dining are addressed before a deep dive into the wonderful world of Chicago food. Do Chicagoans actually eat deep dish pizza? Can you really get booze at Taco Bell? Seriously, it’s just a Burger King. Finally, your cohosts do an experiment to learn more about their genetic make up. Alex orders what she smells. Truj would like to address the rumors. Brian is outnumbered and will drop it.
Mikah Sargent returns to the podcast for a Shower Dining Extravaganza Debrief! Full of surprise guests, singing, and shade, Truj and Brian give all of the shower dining insight they gathered throughout Professor Sargent's Three Day Shower Dining Course. Will your hosts reconcile their differences and be open to new experiences? Truj has a twin. Brian already owns a robe. Mikah is a Puplicist.
Thank you so much for listening to Most Important Meal for the past two years!
Mikah Sargent joins Truj and Brian once more to teach a masterclass in shower dining. Technique and food choice are discussed, followed by debunking (and mockery) of Brian's anxieties surrounding food in the shower. A series of challenges are put in place for your noble cohosts to try before next week's Shower Dining Wrap Up episode! Also discussed is trash cinema, Figure It Out, and the world's worst oatmeal. Brian doesn't have a Tommy Bahama T-Shirt Mindset. Truj wants to win the Pulitzer Prize. Mikah is Dr. Phil.
Truj and Brian recount a romantic grocery store date and report on The Greatest Follow Up Ever Received before embarking on a quest to review every breakfast bar that Brian could find at the store. How much sugar is in each bar? How similar to a cookie do we like our bars? Which prominent protein bar brand will probably never sponsor us? Truj tries to launch an ASMR channel. Brian strongly disapproves.
Robb Lewis joins me to talk about Back to the Future! Topics include UK vs. US schools, anachronisms, nostalgia, and time travel plot holes.
Designer and editor Allison Truj joins me to talk about Over the Garden Wall, a quintessential Halloween miniseries. After an overview of the philosophical implications of the show, we delve into an episode-by-episode recap. Topics include Americana, MIyazaki, the Adventure Time dynasty, and our favorite fan theories.
A unique found footage movie by Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass, Creep is pure tension and anxiety. It just came out on Netflix two weeks ago, so go help build the buzz that this dense 75-minute flick deserves.
I believe that The Babadook is one of the best horror movies of the past ten years. Topics include themes that are rare for a haunted house horror movie, creepy special effects, and a brief look into the production of the movie in order to preserve the child actor's sanity.
After a strange, long break, Brian and Kyle are back to talk about college, weird fame, TV shows Kyle doesn't know about, and traveling.
In this completely unedited episode, Kyle and Brian talk about Periscope (while Periscoping), social media, and the benefit of off-the-cuff #content. They also write a musical.
Kyle and Brian take a trip back in time to discuss last weeks events. Kyle visits NASA, Brian learns geography, and then we talk about money. And referral money. And Patreon.
Disclaimer: Brian also cooked pasta during the show. We made sure you can't tell.
