Jackie Johnson is here too, along with her diplomas, to tell us about her adventures in the kitchen (chickpeas of the sea!) and discuss the ethics of creating her own Chooch clones. I have some sad news to share about the passing of a beloved listener but also I need to debate Swiss cheese and whether it deserves a seat my table. Plus Alie's whittling accident, an update on Jackie's exclusive scoop from last week and Tony's bananas. This episode is not as much about food as this description makes it seem! Also some Gal Chat!

I've decided to spend some of this lockdown time catching up with the cast of character who were regulars on the show when it was a live streaming internet show that I did from my apartment in Brooklyn in 2010. First up is Alfred Schulz who used to do a segment called Things You Never Hear People Say which he reprises here. I also chat with him about where life has taken him in these ten years, fatherhood, how to make good radio (he's a producer and host), his brother Bill Schulz and so much more.
