BBC Radio 5 Gets Real With Me About Food and Foodiness™ in New York


Saturday, September 22 at 8:30 pm EST BBC Radio 5’s New York City dispatch – Up All Night (hosted by Mark Riley) – had me on to discuss why the city’s limit on soft drink sizes won’t work (because those potato people will just drink 2 Mountain Dews! Hello!); why New York City is no longer the capital of thin (because we now eat at 7-11 like the rest of the country); and why Brooklyn’s incredible real-food movement is never gonna move the country’s scales (because if we expect the 99% to raise their own chickens they’re going to keep on eating mcnuggets!).

The I Told You Show


In tonight’s very special first anniversary episode – The I Told You Show – I get real about being right. Going over all the news reports, studies and editorials on food – that with all the updating, connecting, “friending”, linking in, Pinteresting, Instagraming and Tweeting you have to do and therefore don’t have time to read or watch – I will show you that I was right all along that:

  • Performance doesn’t come in bar form (but sports drinks do lead to sexting)
  • Cher isn’t supposed to go bad, but food is
  • We should believe in butter … even Dr. Weil thinks so (but we’re not sure about believing in his beard)
  • Armageddon’s coming, and though you’ve made time to learn how to skateboard (at 46) you haven’t even bought one box of Raisin Bra
  • And it’s a big, big potato-people world after all (and don’t pretend you don’t know whom we’re talking about!)

Special appearances by little Lexi and Hampton who just came home from ADHD palate disorder camp, and morbidly obese Alice texting in from the foodiness rabbit hole.

Freedom Fries Ain’t Free


In tonight’s episode of Let’s Get RealFreedom Fries Ain’t Free – I get real about how war created foodiness™; how foodiness™ created a nation of obese SUV driving potato people, who then needed oil for their SUVs (and now for their mobility scooters), and who now can’t pass the army physical fitness test because they’re too fat to fight. Hopefully the gays can make up for that. But the point is tonight we have special guest First Gulf War veteran Corporate Chad Pagano to take us down the foodiness™ foxhole full of M.R.E.’s and, now, Marys.
