Food is the New Rock

Ep. 68 - Hannah and Christian from Grouplove invite us into their home to talk Halloween candy, pizza and their Chipotle VIP cards. Hannah tells us about growing up on a farm, and Christian recounts his time working as a bartender for Danny Meyer in New York. Plus they admit (for the first time publicly, we believe) that they recently turned vegan!  Their album Spreading Rumors, featuring the hit song "Ways to Go", is out now.

Ep. 66 - Weezer's bassist Scott Shriner is a burger aficionado, so we met him at his favorite burger place in L.A. (Grill 'em All) to talk burgers, pizza and milkshakes.  We also talk cronuts, his mongolian BBQ strategy, and he admits that his favorite burger in Japan is McDonald's. This is actually just part 1 of 2.  At the end of this episode we invite the two guys from Grill 'em All to join the party and talk METAL.  So you have that to look forward to next week...

Ep. 64 - Chef Sang Yoon is well known in L.A. as the chef of Father's Office and Lukshon, and around the country for his stint on Top Chef Masters (both as a guest and a judge). But did you know he was also a roadie as a teenager?  He tells us all about it on this weeks podcast.  We also talk about his mom's amazing vinyl collection, the instrument she forced him to play, and how much she loved Def Leppard. Plus Zach manages to bring up Sang's refusal to serve ketchup or make any substitutions to the Father's Office burger, and compares it to punk rock.
