08 – Ratatouille (2007)

Sophie & Mitch try to figure out if anyone can cook – as well as many other things brought up by the 2007 Disney/Pixar film: Ratatouille.

Is Remmy a Secret of NIMH rat? How does Linguini’s hair turn his body into a puppet? Why couldn’t the beautiful scenes built around food be held together with a more streamlined structural focus resulting in a stronger relationship with between the antagonists and the protagonists? We answer all these questions and more!

35 – Mushrooms w. Shawn Gray

Shawn Gray is back yet again! This time to break down those insane decomposers: mushrooms.

We talk about how to use them in your cooking, how they’re not quite vegetables nor animals, how they may have informed the development of the human species, and so much more! Seriously, we’ll be doing another episode on this because there was so much that we didn’t even talk about.

Make sure to check out Shawn’s group Edmonton Garbage Warriors to ensure the mushrooms aren’t the only ones cleaning things up out there this season!
