Rank #1: Episode 39: Mango

Podcast cover
Read more
It's sweet, it's tropical, it's Christmassy. But it's also fever-inducing, rashy and incites rage. It's the mango and while we're all for it, you need to understand the dangers.

Rank #2: Episode 3: Pineapple

Podcast cover
Read more
Consider this. The pineapple, a sweet, tropical fruit is actually trying to eat you. And that’s when it’s not ruining your pizza, your fashion or your fridge. Sure, they seem all exotic and shit, but we lift the lid on the fruit world’s silent killer. Or something.

Rank #4: Episode 8: Turkey

Podcast cover
Read more
It is a large, stupid-looking bird that we eat once a year. But the turkey is also celebrated in air freshener form, unfairly blamed for our drowsiness and has a way better name in ancient Aztec. Let's talk turkey.

A waste of space or a flavour sensation? It depends if it's wrapped in prosciutto, apparently. Yes we're back for 2018 and we're talking about melons. How we eat them, where they came from and how to blow them up.

Rank #7: Episode 38: Sugar

Podcast cover

We need a little bit of it to live, and a lot of it to get over the 3 pm slump. It's sugar and this episode we roll it up, turn it into cubes, smash it at 3 pm and use it to blow Tic Tacs wiiiiide open.

Rank #8: Episode 32: Coconut

Podcast cover
Read more
It gets us drunk, smells nice and it's good for us. But it's also the symbol of the opulence and corruption of a disgraced despot. So yeah, our relationship with coconut is kind of complicated.

Rank #9: Episode 33: Cherries

Symbol of fertility, inspirer of songs, flavourer of drinks. But does the cherry have a dark side? Also, we might have invented the best drink ever.

What comes first? The egg. Well, it comes first for 2017 as we return from our hiatus. And what about eggs? How did they make their mark on 80s movie cocktails? Do they ruin hamburgers? And can humans hatch them?

Rank #13: Episode 5: Soy Sauce

Podcast cover

There's something about a sauce that makes no bones about being made from fermented soy beans. So it's no surprise that it bridges, art, science, space exploration and absolute vomit-inducing grossness. Pour a little with us.

Rank #15: Episode 6: Salt

Podcast cover

It's an ingenious way to preserve foods, to maintain wicker furniture, to make one feel bling af, to inspire creepy German kids' songs and to get Ben to talk about the civil war again. But can salt do everything? Spoiler alert, no.

It’s time to talk about one of the greatest ingredients in the entire world: figs. Yes, they’re out of season so Em had to ask her talented sister to paint a picture of them because they are unavailable in ALL THE STORES. What do figs have to do with genitals? Ben looks into that. Why is Maggie Beer burnt fig, salted caramel and honeycomb ice-cream the best flavour ever? Em looks into that. Plus: a theory into why Australian athletes didn’t perform so well at the recent Olympics, and a fail-proof plan on how they can do better next time.

It's the giver of life and perfect for a tradie-style smoko. But what's its history, when did it stop get it delivered, is it really in chocolate and most importantly, can it be mixed with gin?
