You know what? This podcast was actually going alright until it got to your guys’ questions. But now everyone’s scarred for life. Great. The normal(ish) things discussed in this podcast included a jellyfish epidemic, soup slurping illegality, and fishing off a camels back. Totally normal, see?

Best Soundbite: “My rule would be no pants in the studio” – Jamie Spafford

    I’m catching up on podcasts and that might be my favorite ever! Trouser-less dress code would totally increase eye contact!

    Naked and cooking might be a bad idea but no pants seems reasonable. Just wear an apron when you fry something!

    Hey Guys. This one gave me a serious case of giggles. I was very intrigued by Barry’s jellyfish topic {great job Barry} mostly because jellyfish have gotten to be a worse hazard on both east & west coasts of the U.S. On a trip to my brother’s home in California, I was stung by a huuuuuge Man o war jellyfish. The bastard just swirled around my thighs & wrapped up to my waist. The pain was intense! It took a number of life guards helping my brother to get it off me. Though a couple of guys cheerfully volunteered to pee on me – one looked suspiciously like R. Kelly – the head lifeguard had a large cooler full of tomato juice which lessened the pain significantly. As to the coming podcasts, where is James? Please bring him back on air.

    Hey guys, love those podcasts!
    Is there any way you can make them available as a download? I always listen to them on my way to work but I don’t always have an internet connection.. 🙁

    Hello. Esther Gee here. Just wanted to say that I’ve been having the best of weeks and to suddenly hear my name at 4:52 PM on a Friday – let’s just say that I needed it. Thanks guys.

    I really enjoyed this podcast, could tell you were hung over lol must have been a good night, but agree with the other comments so far, they are getting shorter.

    More of the guys with more fact/lies please!! James should be on it more too!

    Also i have a suggestion, when grilled pops up it to introduce the segment, how about changing it to a grill style stamp that appears, like a branding iron style design with a sizzle sound? suits both sound and video and doesn’t cover the talking, I know they are only introducing the segment, but it would link more with the food aspect and you could use the ‘Sorted’ font 🙂

    Why was Ben not in this podcast? He was in the studio! It’s been since last season that we’ve seen them all together 🙁

    Apart from the Donal special these podcasts are getting shorter and shorter 🙁

      Sorry about that! They will be getting longer again but the guys may have potentially been a teeny tiny bit hungover for this episode 🙄

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?
