This week Matt and Kelcey from L.A. band The Local Natives stopped by our studio to talk food and beer with us before heading out on tour to support their new record Hummingbird. They tell us about their favorite Cuban sandwich in the whole country, the worst meal they’ve ever eaten on tour, and what happened to Taylor when he followed up a 10 day juice cleanse with a plate of steak covered nachos. They also tell us about the fun surprises they get by including “Local Craft Beer” as one of the things on their rider.
This week’s guest on the podcast… A FREAKIN’ IRON CHEF.
And we did it all from the comfort of his hotel room (ooh la la!) Hear Jose Garces talk about El Vez (The Mexican Elvis!!!), food as an art form, and his new cookbook “The Latin Road Home”. Plus hear him explain away all the Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift on his iPod by blaming it on his two kids.
Then leave a comment and rate us in iTunes, so others can discover our awesomeness.
This week’s podcast is now up and our guest is the drummer from one of my all time favorite bands… Patrick Hallahan from My Morning Jacket. After months of research he reveals his pick for Best Sandwich in America, plus his favorite places to eat in Chicago, the Carolinas, and Louisville. We also get him to tell us about Jim James’ childhood obsession with Little Debbie snack cakes, and how it has grown into an adult obsession with creme brulee. Plus he tells us how a lobster roll was responsible for the only MMJ gig he’s ever missed, his grandmother’s secret to cooking scrambled eggs, and which bands he likes eating with on tour.
This week Zach & Chuck welcome Keith Morris (ex Circle Jerks & Black Flag) and Dimitri Coats (ex Burning Brides) to Bronson Island to talk about the food they eat on tour with their current band OFF! We discuss the best place to eat near Jumbo’s Clown Room in L.A., how to eat a pastrami sandwich at Langer’s, the best BBQ in Atlanta, and how Keith copes with having diabetes on the road. Plus Dimitri tells us about their infamous arrest for stealing cooking oil from a Hawaiian BBQ place, and we get Keith to give us his thoughts on the Greg Ginn Band. (Spoiler: They’re not great.)
Singer/Songwriter Meiko stopped by the Bronson Island studios this week to talk to us about fried chicken, Japanese food, and the origin of her name. Plus she clues us in to her favorite burger in NYC, her favorite pizza in Chicago, and her favorite poke in Hawaii, right before challenging Chuck to a turkey ball cook-off. We also get her to admit that she helped the Hanson brothers name their beer while on tour together (spoiler: it’s called MMMM Hop) even though one of them has terrible taste in cheese (Zac). Oh, and if you’re wondering why the episode is labeled “explicit”, it’s because Meiko had to go and mention chocolate covered penises. So there’s that also.
