Surprise! You might've thought we posted our last DPD episode, but we've got a few more audio goodies over the next couple of weeks, starting with this inaugural episode of what we're calling our "How to Behave" series. Think of it as a companion to Brendan and Rico's book, "Brunch is Hell." These episodes will take the best bits of our favorite etiquette segments. Today's theme is food, and our guests are celebrity chefs Alton Brown, Samin Nosrat, and Bobby Flay. Bon appétit!
It's our final new episode! Featuring new music from Northwest phenom Kyle Craft... A tale of howling at the moon from Snap Judgement's Glynn Washington... Unimpeachable holiday gift ideas from New York Times columnist Lindy West... Maddening song suggestions from Luke Burbank of "LiveWire"... And a litany of good - and bad - goodbyes for all of our wonderful listeners.
