There’s a Willy Wonka theme to this weeks podcasts. How would you feel about licking wallpaper or chewing on everlasting gum? As fun as this all sounds, don’t worry – Jamie is here to bring the tone of the podcast down with talk of self pleasure. There’s always next week for an actual educational podcast, right?


Best Soundbite: “Talking about how I want this podcast to go…masterbation” – Ben Ebbrell

    How DO you submit a lie for future podcasts without the boys seeing it and therefore knowing it’s the lie? Is there a direct line to Nikki?

  2. LTJD

    So as a swede when Barry said And the Swedes do some crazy stuff I am just nodding along thinking lickable wallpaper does sound like something we would do.

    Jaime reminds me of a terrible joke my grandfather played on my parents. He was a policeman and thought it would be HILARIOUS to teach me that that the pig says “stick em up”. My teacher the first day of kindergarten was VERY concerned and my grandfather got dragged in to explain himself. He was unrepentant. I’m continuing the tradition and trying to teach my nephew fingerguns to go with it.

  4. Esther

    Oh come on now Jamie. Mike’s delightful chocolate surprises were great! He put a lot of thought and effort into making them

    1. Guys, Ben used the word piezoelectric about a million times. This is not a term he would use regularly. How did that not tip you off?
    2. Animal testing (humane animal testing) is the reason life expectancy has increased as much as it has. It’s the only reason that drugs for diseases like cancer, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, etc etc exist. For things like beauty products I understand your reservation, but for medications, it’s kind of the only option, at the moment.
    3. Jamie and Barry giggling while Ben is just talking out the cornflake masturbation theory is one of the funniest things I have ever watched.
    4. MICE EAT THEIR YOUNG ON RANDOM OCCASION! You have not lived until you’ve switched mouse cages and found a fat mother and a couple of random mouse heads.

      Seems like you’re a scientist? So am I! Can I ask what do you study?

      • jeyscreations

        Scientists unite! I’m a biochemist that sort of drifted into medical research. How about you?

  6. Steton

    This format needs to go back to having all 4 of you

    I almost submitted the Corn Flakes fact but I assumed it was basic knowledge; clearly not since it’s a bizarre thing to know. Fun fact: Graham crackers were created by minister Sylvester Graham for the very same reason. I believe Dr. Kellogg also had a “hospital” that was more along the line of a wellness retreat that promoted a bland diet and other lifestyles he believed were the healthiest.

  8. Powerfulweak

    Great episode! Gave me a great laugh. Oddly enough, Sylvester Graham invented the graham crackers also as a way of preventing… self love.

    Here’s a lie for a future podcast: if kept in a temperature controlled environment, Sour Cream cannot go bad. It is already soured and cannot turn further. If bacteria or other substances are introduced, mold may begin to grow, but it can simply be scooped away from the rest of the cream, which is still good to use.

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?
