We get season three of Feast Your Ears off to a brilliant start with a talk about drugs, the Mafia, theme songs to life and FAVE superheroes. You may be asking yourself where the topic of food comes into any of this. Well it does. Precariously…but it still does. Next season could always be better I guess.

Best Soundbite: “Watch out for 2020’s new Marvel film, Popeye: The Sailer Man” – Michael Huttlestone

    How can we download these podcasts? Really frustrating needing internet to listen

    I have a feeling the reason Barry isn’t there is because a baby may have been born!!!

    I live in Maine so I knew that was the truth. It was a big deal when it happened, it was all over the news and people were talking about it.

    Love that you are back – also love the video being back. As a non native speaker…. Feast your ears sounds a lot like Easter ears … So I somehow picture you all with a ridiculous set of Playboy Bunny ears…. Can’t be worse than the “swag” though …. 😉

    Watching Ben trying to describe the effects of getting high is one of the highlights of my year. I think I speak for a lot of people when I ask: Who in the effing world is Banana Man?

    • rellais

      Only the greatest English childhood hero of the ’80s, that and Danger Mouse!!

  8. Nice to see you doing podcasts..

  9. My theme song… ‘Fat’ by Weird Al.

    lobsters are crustaceans and they have gills! These podcasts have made me realise how much useless information I know.

  11. Wolfgirl81

    Ground Force, Banana Man and Super Ted, all favs when I was younger! Classic! Loved this episode, especially the call from Barry! lol

    Grilled question for next podcast:
    Have there been any food aversions that you’ve overcome since being a part of sorted food?

  13. abigaildaley

    Ground Force, wow, absolutely iconic. Although I agree – not quite right for Jamie. Might be better as a theme for whenever the “normals” is generally dithering about. Fab as always 🙂

  14. Esther

    OH!!! Jamie’s theme song should totally be the theme to Veggie Tales. Just like, switch out the veg terminology for meat or something.

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

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?

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 worth it?

S4 E9 – Is eating seasonally 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.

S4 E8 – Rotten sausages get rid of wrinkles?

S4 E8 – Rotten sausages get rid of wrinkles?

Or maybe rotten tomatoes can be used as nail varnish remover… who knows? As well as separating the truth from the lies, Ben, Jamie and Mike chat about their favourite foods to cook at home vs. what’s the best cuisine to eat when you’re going out.

S4 E7 – Getting drunk from non alcoholic spirits?

S4 E7 – Getting drunk from non alcoholic spirits?

Would you ever consider buying alcohol… without the alcohol? Apparently, non alcoholic spirits, beers and cocktails are looking to be the next big thing! In this episode the guys try some out and try to understand why it’s becoming so popular.

S4 E6 – Taste testing aphrodisiacs?!

S4 E6 – Taste testing aphrodisiacs?!

Of course this podcast had to be valentine’s themed…kind of. This episodes explores weird and wonderful aphrodisiacs and as expected, things get a little bit (very) weird. P.S. this entire podcast theme was Jamie’s idea…can you tell?

S4 E5 – Would you eat insects if the world depended on it?!

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?
