They’re real!!!!!!!!! 

(Thanks to listener Matt O for sending us the photos.)

On this week’s podcast we finally get to talk to…

KEN FRIEDMAN

… owner of the Spotted Pig in New York, which celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year.  Before teaming up with Chef April Bloomfield to open The Pig, John Dory Oyster Bar, The Breslin, and more, Ken was in the music industry.  He booked U2’s very first show in San Francisco, working underneath Clive Davis, and worked with artists like Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails.  We talk about all of that, as well as Mario Batali, Rachael Ray, and the similarities between working in the music and food industries.

We found the pre Epic Meal Time “Poppin Perrier” music video Harley Morenstein told us about on the podcast this week.

Warning: This video contains many shirtless men, including a young, and beardless (but not hairless) Harley Morenstein.

Our girl Noelle Scaggs from Fitz & the Tantrums contributed this great buttermilk pancake recipe to Sweetlife’s new digital cookbook. 

This week’s podcast guest is…

EPIC MEAL TIME’S HARLEY MORENSTEIN

Zach went to their studio on the day the US lost to Belgium in the World Cup (because Canadiens don’t give a s**t about American soccer) and talked to Harley about his brand new show Epic Meal Empire, which debuts on the FYI Network on July 26th. Warning: there are spoilers. He also tells us what kind of music he listened to growing up, and about a few of the terrible music videos he was in before starting EMT (which he compares to Wu Tang). And towards the end, Harley may or may not admit to coming face to face with a pig and feeling a tad bit guilty.

#tbt Episode 1 w/ Jonathan Gold

[Food] is powerful. What it does have something in common at its best with rock ’n’ roll, with great rock ’n’ roll: There’s a sense that somebody’s talking to you. You used to get an old 331⁄3, you’d listen to the music and if it moved you, then you’d go, ‘Wow!’ What else were they trying to say to you? And you’d pore over the cover and the back liner and say, ‘I want more. Someone’s talking to me and I want to make sure I understand.’
From Smithsonian.com, hope that Anthony Bourdain might just buy into our thesis a tiny tiny bit…
