Nick welcomes food writer/editor Marnie Shure to the podcast to discuss tipping scams, the new Ruby-red pineapples from Del-Monte (which cost about $400?!!!?), and delicious edible bugs available in Chicago. Marnie also gives Nick an update on the next “Mortified” show, and her latest Horror Report. Then, Esmeralda Leon and Nick talk about food cravings, pizza with hot dogs on it, and how to relax a lobster before throwing it in a pot of boiling water. They also taste-test more snacks from The Baltics, talk about the upcoming “Flashback Weekend Horror Convention,” and discuss the coolest gangs in the movie “The Warriors,” and how unbelievably committed those gangs have to be to their make-up and costumes.
