Episode 28: PLEASE LIKE ME with Sam Myers and Zamin Husain
In a love-letter of a round table discussion, urbane queers Sam Myers and Zamin Husain join our hosts for a discussion about "Please Like Me," a show as culinary as it is biting and tender, monstrous and millenial. With each episode named after a dish prepared or consumed, this queer Aussie dramedy shows how food operates as a form of care when its selfish but alluring characters have few other ways of expressing it.

Episode 26: DAISIES with Marya E. Gates
Sausages are snipped, peaches are picked, and cake is catapulted! Film writer Marya E. Gates comes on the pod to evangelize Věra Chytilová's DAISIES, a gem of the Czech New Wave and an amazing (and highly underrated) food film. In DAISIES, meals are key to sugar babying, class deconstruction, and women's pursuit of pleasure. Come for the subversive feminist romp, stay for the astounding food fight.

Episode 25: ORDINARY PEOPLE with Mark Harris
Someone notorious for snatching the Best Picture trophy from the boxed gloves of RAGING BULL, ORDINARY PEOPLE is the rumbling domestic drama about an upper class family — starring Donald Sutherland, Timothy Hutton, and Mary Tyler Moore, and Judd Hirsch as the therapist Hutton begins to see — about the fall apart from the pain no one will acknowledge and the roles no one is good at playing. Its precisely selected food moments articulate a unit at the breaking point and a questioning, too, of the legacy of white suburban familial “happiness” in cinema. Writer and Oscar aficionado Mark Harris, the author of MIKE NICHOLS: A LIFE and PICTURES AT A REVOLUTION, joins us to discus how something as small as unwanted Fence toast can set off a chain reaction of events in a single family. We also play a game of Sounds Like a Suburban Snack to Me and discuss what’s giving us Lasagna Time feels this week.

Episode 24: MARE OF EASTTOWN with Lexi McMenamin
On "Mare of Easttown," food is comfort, food is a weapon, and food is even in Fruit Ninja. (God bless Jean Smart.) On this episode, Easttownologist Lexi McMenamin (no relation to the show's fictional Erin, we think?) discusses how this hit HBO show reveals how food plays into the silence, violence, and coping that is emblematic of a kind of whiteness not often seen in media.

Episode 23: CALL ME BY YOUR NAME with Richard Lawson
It took us 23 episodes, but we’re finally basking in the shimmering Italian summer heat of Call Me By Your Name. Vanity Fair’s incredibly charming and witty Richard Lawson joins Billy and Kyle talk about the class implications of the food and how it shapes Elio and Oliver’s perspectives about pleasure and work, the ecosystem of labor in the film, the soft boiled eggs, the fish, and, yes, we talk about the peach. And the hosts explore how the film, which Kyle famously dislikes, interrogates how food and the body is a central part of our conceptions of desire, while capping off this week’s episode with a game of Sounds Like a Gay Food to Me.
