Brown Bag Lunches: Strategies for Bringing Your Lunch to Work (AUDIO)

In Episode 155 of The Sporkful podcast, Chicago Tribune columnist Eric Zorn joins Dan to discuss strategies and techniques for bringing your own lunch to work.

Eric argues that pretzels are better for a brown bag lunch than potato chips while Dan explains why the sandwich isn't as well suited to this purpose as people think.

They discuss what kitchen equipment should be standard at all workplaces, and what your lunch tells your coworkers about you. And Eric explains why, when he's working, he says, "I resent lunch the same way I resent sleep."

Also, a caller offers useful advice on how to get an indecisive group of friends to go to the restaurant you want to go to.
