Rank #1: Baconfest Podcast #6 - Peter Sagal (Wait Wait Don't Tell Me) Dives Deep into Bacon Philosophy

Podcast cover
Read more

When Peter Sagal, beloved host of NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me
and infamous scriptwriter of the first draft of "Dirty
Dancing 2 - Havana Nights" decided to join me for lunch at David
Burke's Primehouse, I didn't know where our conversation would go.
 But we went far! Starting from bacon, we discussed ontology,
evolutionary biology, advertising, the fundamentals of human desire
and the role of corporations in our every day life.  Also, we
tackled the fundamental question: when is bacon bacon and when is
it just a slab of pork?  I hope you'll enjoy listening to our
conversation as much as I enjoyed having it.
