In todays podcast BARRY fact checked BEN. Yes, that’s right. BAZ knew something that Ben DIDN’T!

We never thought we’d see the day.

Also, can we send some good vibes to Mike for his wedding cake challenge?

Best soundbite: “These are the superheroes no one knows about because they’re in the new Batman film. Basically, they’re all people who aren’t as good as Batman.” – Barry Taylor

    I can partially answer Mike’s question about growing figs! I can’t speak for all varieties, but my dad has a couple of fully grown fig trees in the back garden. Pacific Westcoast so our climate is usually sunny and dry for 2 – 3 months of the year, gloomy and rainy for the remainder. Very moderate temperature. He waters the trees in the summer due to the lack of rain but otherwise, he just leaves them alone and we get a decent harvest every year.

    Why did you remove the video? I loved it! Can you bring it back for the next season?

    And good luck with your wedding cake, Mike, I’m sure you’ll manage perfectly 🙂

      Hey Xenia,

      We removed it so that we could focus on the sound quality of the podcasts and make sure it’s the best audio experience it can be…also, we reckon watching 4 guys sat at a table might get pretty boring after hours and hours of it!

      Hope you can understand!

        Okay, I can definitely understand that! And don’t get me wrong: I still enjoy the podcast immensely!
        Thank you for answering ☺️

    1) Mike’s comment about Gatorade originating with the Florida Gators is true 🙂
    2) As an attempting-to-be-runner I’ll have to try out the pretzels and pickles.
    3) Can’t wait to see your pizza twirling skills in a future episode Ben 😉
    Great listening as always guys!!

    The US actually has a version of Kinder Eggs, they are modified. They are Kinder Joy Eggs. The chocolate and the toy are two separate compartments.

      So that’s what that is! I’m in Canada and saw Kinder Joy Eggs for the first time a few weeks ago. I thought it was a new product launch.

S5 E7 – Is food delivery bad for us?

In the age of Just Eat, Deliveroo and Uber Eats, ordering food to be delivered to your door has become easier than ever, but is that detrimental to our health?

S5 E6 – Where does our food come from?

S5 E6 – Where does our food come from?

As time has gone on, we’ve become more and more detached from the origins of our food. Pig is pork, cow is beef, chicken comes in nuggets and fish in fingers. How important is it to know how exactly our food is created and once we do know, would that affect what we choose to consume?

S5 E2 – How much is too much to pay for food?

Last Christmas, Team Sorted celebrated at a restaurant offering various small tasting plates. The food was finely crafted, but every person left astounded at the final bill. So where is the line on overpriced foods?

S5 E1 – Can dining alone be fun?

Solo dining is incredibly popular in Japan and Ben’s been lucky enough to head over and try it for himself. With dining alone becoming more socially acceptable, the guys discuss their experiences which eventually leads them to the question… to room service or not to room service? What are your guys thoughts?

S4 E10 – Is MSG not actually bad for you?

S4 E10 – Is MSG not actually bad for you?

There’s a load of negative stigma attached to the consumption of MSG (Monosodium Glutomate) which is a naturally occurring flavour enhancer that’s usually used in take-away foods. But what if we were to tell you it’s not actually bad for you? In this episode the guys delve into the subject and see if they can taste the difference between a normal dish and one where MSG has been added.

S4 E9 – Is eating seasonally really that worth it?

It can be really difficult to keep on top of what’s in season and even more difficult when you realise it might actually be more economical to eat veggies from further away! Baz whips up some *ahem* delicious smoothies to taste this week and the boys discuss some of their fave London spots.
