Nick welcomes food writer/editor Marnie Shure to the podcast to discuss the Joey Chestnut drama—he was booted from the July 4th Hot Dog Eating Contest! They also talk about the latest list of America’s Top Chain Restaurants and emphasize how food pantries need help all year long, not just during the holidays. Marnie provides a Horror Report and shares a tale about the new Reese’s Jumbo Cup.

Later, Esmeralda Leon joins Nick to chat about some of the CBS shows she’s currently enjoying and to answer some trivia questions about the 2000s, involving Blu-Rays, Ugg Boots, and Jim Carrey. You’ll also learn exactly who “Big Boobs McGee” is and get a taste review of some new snacks from the UK. [EP257]
