Sorted becomes a trio in this week’s poddy but don’t you worry, the facts and lies are probably wackier than ever.

We chat about land octopi, running the world off of cucumbers and try to change the way you guys think about food.

Best soundbite: “I am a massive, massive, MASSIVE fan of David Attenborough and if he has not shown me this… I feel like he has massively failed me in life.” – Benjamin Ebbrell

    And here I am trying to create sea sheep (after all there are already sea cows and sea horses). Turns out it already exists and is some sort of slug.

    You should do an episode with all five of you. I think it’d be nice to hear all five of you on the podcast.

    I’m in for Shared Pants Thursdays. Temperate rainforests are a thing and I’d love to make arboreal octopi a thing.

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 E5 – Would you eat insects if the world depended on it?!

The future of food is constantly changing and perceptions of food vary drastically from country to country. What may be considered as a delicacy in one country could be seen as revolting in another. An interesting topic that’s been cropping up recently is the use of insects as a more sustainable form of protein. What are your thoughts?
