Sorry for the delay on this one. Had some trips, sickness, and technical difficulties delay things a bit.  In any event, here's the discussion thread for this episode.  Let us know what you think of the new format.  Thanks!

I'm loving the show btw. I notice sometimes you end up doing video topics that are somewhat related to the show - like the fed ex guy gambling his live VS the video about the british guy who did the same. I'm wondering if/how these are related; does doing one give you ideas for the other?

"while you're trying to shed your winter coat...so hungry now." You should try researching/writing on these things... So amazingly hungry throughout and at the end. The articles on French Fries and the origin of Buffalo Wings were particularly difficult to get through. ?
