Hey gang! First up, we catch up on the news, including Salt Bae in the US (0:28), an epic cease and desist by Anheuser-Busch (1:24), McDonalds' refreshed value menu (2:26), and Starbucks' largest location yet in Shanghai (3:03). Next up is a chat with Darin and Greg Bresnitz (3:22) about the perfect blend of music and food in Snacky Tunes, their long-running podcast on Heritage Radio, as well as their early days with IFC and more. We close out with a tune for the vegan guests at your holiday feast (31:05).
Double trouble hits "backstage" in the form of Darin and Greg Bresnitz - tastemaking twins who DJ, book shows, produce stuff (including their own Snacky Tunes podcast), and thoroughly enjoy food culture. The terrible twosome share some of their own torturous tales, which including urinating and defecating while DJing in front of thousands in Europe, losing iPods in ass pockets, playing in early 2000s Boston screamo bands, and the love of foodstuffs their parents instilled as them (did we mention that their mother was present at the taping of this episode?). Plenty of double takes on this week's WORST GIG EVER!
Ep. 28 - We're not exactly sure who originally coined the phrase Food is the New Rock, but if our little thesis had forefathers this week's guest would definitely be one of them. Greg, along with his twin brother Darin, created and produced the show Dinner with the Band, which aired on IFC from 2007 to 2010. Now they host the food/music show Snacky Tunes which airs every Monday at 2pm on Heritage Radio. We talk to Greg about both projects and get into whether or not food really is the new rock (spoiler: we say yes.) We also may or may not argue over whose show name is worse (spoiler: we say ours.)
