Check out this picture of my kitchen in the midst of a photo shoot for the web portion of my radio segment this Sunday on NPR's Weekend Edition. Can I add "key grip" to my resume?

Last week's Sporkful podcast included an intense debate about the correct definition of a sandwich. Hear what both sides have to say, then let us know what you think. Does NPR's ombudsman need to know about this?

A discussion with a structural engineer about tortilla chips and the wonders of domes leads Dan to a Cinco de Mayo breakthrough.

It turns out magic can happen when Dan tapes an episode of The Sporkful with no plan whatsoever, especially when it's with Ian and Mike from NPR's "How To Do Everything" and "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me."

Peter Sagal joins Dan to discuss growing up as a fat kid, his opinions on Chicago pizza, grilling the perfect burger, how Courtney Love turned him against melted cheese, and much more.

On NPR today, I discussed the benefits and pitfalls of eating alone, with some help from Deepak Chopra. He makes a distinction between eating alone and "in solitude," and offers advice on how to get the most out of the experience.
