Judge John Hodgman Episode 185: Campering with the Evidence

| 10 comments

Dale brings the case against her husband, Shawn. Dale bought a small trailer, intending to convert it to a food truck for her business. She's figured out it isn't suitable as a food truck, and now she has plans to make it into a small camper. Shawn says the trailer won't work as a camper, either, and that it's time to sell it. Who's right? Who's wrong?

Thanks to Joe Pritchard for suggesting this week's case name!

Natalie brings the case against her husband Hugo. She wants to throw food away when she decides it's spoiled or too old. Hugo hates waste, and is aghast that Natalie throws away moldy but "perfectly usable" items. Who is right? Who is wrong? Only one man can decide.

This week, the Judge is joined by television host, chef, and expert witness Alton Brown. Alton continues to host a number of shows for the Food Network, including Good Eats and Next Iron Chef. He's currently working on a podcast of his own, called The Browncast.

Judge John Hodgman Episode 62: My Dinner with Ennui

| 3 comments

Holly brings this case against her writing partner Todd. They live in Los Angeles, and meet at restaurants to work together on projects at least once a week. Todd prefers to eat at a few agreed-upon, time-tested restaurants to eat one of his dishes of choice. He says that eating the same meals helps keep his mind free to focus on work. Holly feels her creative spirit is stifled by eating at the same places, week in and week out. Should Todd’s habits or Holly’s spontaneity rule?

ALSO, RIP to Awesome Cone, from The Cone-Tractual Dispute.

Adam Carolla on the KCRW PieCast

| 2 comments

Adam Carolla is an avowed pie-lover, and it was pure delight when he stopped by KCRW's Good Food PieCast to chat with Evan Kleiman. It's five or ten minutes of solid highlights, but I particularly enjoyed when Kleiman nudged Carolla into declaring that boysenberry is "King of Pies." Two of radio's most distinctively ridiculous, sharp and entertaining personalities clashing as you'd never have thought they might.

By the way, if you missed Adam Carolla on The Sound of Young America, it's very much worth a listen. And don't miss my and Jordan's return engagement on Carolla's show in a week or so.

Our long-time video pal Ben Harrison has been cooking up cocktail bitters for years, refining an amazing recipe. Now he's kicking things up a notch with a Kickstarter project to make a Giant Vat's worth. A twenty dollar pledge gets you a bottle of Hella Bitter Citrus Cocktail Bitters, featuring Ben offering his best thizz face on the label. Well worth your money, says I.
