Opening yourself up to the possibility of hurt isn't an easy thing to do. Unfortunately for just about anyone who has ever met me, I’ve abused their trust in me.... Continue Reading →

And remember, if you have to ask “Was That In Good Taste?”
This week we’re talking comfort foods and discomfort foods. Stephen Beary and I discuss the foods that give us a sense of security, nostalgia, and catharsis and the memories of past meals that are firmly tied to certain foods and flavors. To accompany our conversation, Stephen made himself a basic whiskey and ginger beer cocktail, while I went out on a limb and made my own variation of a California Root Beer (a cocktail consisting out Galliano liqueur, Kaluah, bourbon and ginger beer) as an alcoholic homage to my favorite soft drink. But we couldn’t just talk about the foods that make us feel good without talking about our discomfort foods. For me that not only means foods, flavors, and textures I dislike, but also create a sense of dissonance or anxiety.
Through the episode, Stephen recalls vivid memories of shared meals with friends and family and how those certain…

Addiction is not a joke. Almost 21 million Americans have at least one addiction, yet only 10% of them receive treatment. The conversation about addiction and our world today is convoluted and confusing.

In our first beta test episode of the original podcast “Was That In Good Taste” starring Steven Beary and myself, we pose the question, “why, of all hip-hop artists and groups, does the Wu Tang Clan seem to appeal to a disproportionate amount of white suburban kids like myself?”
Though we managed to cover a lot of topics during our discussion ranging from cheesy morning radio host impersonations, Bernie Sanders, various Wu Tang projects and hip-hop movements, I felt like there was more to say on the subject. This is a reflection on our discussion about why white people like Wu Tang so much so I can provide a more comprehensive explanation of how I came to appreciate hip-hop and the Wu Tang Clan, and speculate why I think the Wu Tang Clan had such broad appeal.
