Alton Brown Eats Eggs Over The Sink In His Underwear

This week's episode of The Sporkful podcast is up! Listen through the player or iTunes/Podcasts app. (And please subscribe!)

Since Dan launched The Sporkful nearly seven years ago listeners have said, "YOU HAVE TO HAVE ALTON BROWN ON THE SHOW!"

Well friends, today is the day.

The sciency, geeky, hilarious Food Network star stops by our studio to nerd out Sporkful style on everything from scrambled eggs to popcorn. Plus he and Dan debate the relative merits of forks and knives, and discuss Alton's live show, Eat Your Science.

Alton Brown Live Eat Your Science

Before Alton hit it big, he was a cinematographer who made commercials. He'd watch cooking shows on his breaks and think, "I can do better than this." He went to culinary school and just two years later he was on Food Network. So he and Dan talk about why food TV connects with people so deeply and why viewers love competition shows in particular.

Finally, we talk with Alton about his personal life. The food star dishes thoughtfully on what he and his daughter have in common, the one thing that makes him depressed, and whether people are capable of change.
