Episode 11 - Hot Dog

Welcome to Feeding the Soul podcast, where we explore the culture and cultural differences between one’s food and drink. On today’s episode, we explore the hot dog. John and I sought out 5 well known hot dog joints and wanted to get a taste of what they had to offer.  So whether its wrapped in bacon, covered in cheese, doused in mustard or ketchup, piled high with chili or peppers – or whatever the toppings, the hot dog can be found all throughout the United States in its various forms and interpretations.Most people may not want to know what’s inside their hot dog. Essentially it’s this intestine encased flavor bomb, that we the hot dog, but it’s certainly a coveted part of this country’s national cuisine. As popular as this food item is, it’s not native to the USA, as the roots of this quintessential baseball companion go back centuries with its origins in western Europe.
