Episode #85: Cereal and Advertising

It’s football season, everyone.  What’s that mean?  It means The Regal Beagle (where we record all our podcasts) is open two hours earlier on Sundays.  It also means they are serving burritos, in honor of football season.  So heads up:  if you live in San Diego and want to watch football and eat a burrito, come to the Regal Beagle.

Speaking of food.  This week we talk about the horrible food we ate as kids.  Basically, our diets consisted mostly of sugar.  Sometimes that sugar was flavored.  Sometimes it was wrapped in other sugar.  It’s amazing we survived.  We also talk about how doctors and scientists can’t make up their minds about what’s good for you.  Don’t eat eggs.  No, just kidding, eat eggs.  Just don’t eat fat.  Actually, you need some fat, so eat it.  Make up your mind, doctors.

Finally, we talk about advertising.  Basically it comes down to this:  there are some commercials that are so bad it guarantees that we will never, ever buy the product they are advertising.  Also, we come up with our own line of truly awesome toys for girls.  We call it our Natasha Romanoff line of toys.  If you are a little girl, especially if you have an older brother, you will want these toys.  They’ll be on sale in our Etsy store soon.  And, since everything eventually comes back to Star Wars we talk about how Princess Leia is a lot cooler than, and tougher, then many people give her credit for.  Grab your drinks, Brick Room Listeners.  Go football!
