About the Show
Every week on Spilled Milk, writers/comedians Molly Wizenberg and Matthew Amster-Burton start with a food-related topic, from apples to winter squash, and run with it as far as they can go—and, regrettably, sometimes further.
Episode 38: Crusty Corners
May 12th, 2011 | 15 mins 44 secs
We're reporting live from Crusty Corners, the magical land where crusty, cheesy, bubbly goodness reigns. This was supposed to be a show about macaroni and cheese, but everything went horribly off the rails and devolved into Matthew's makeup tips and[...]
Episode 37: Beans
April 28th, 2011 | 19 mins 4 secs
We know you didn't think it was possible, but this week, we're even more full of beans than usual. (Dried beans, specifically, though we like canned, too.) We're tackling some of life's toughest questions: to soak or not to soak, to salt or not to[...]
Episode 36: Butter
April 14th, 2011 | 21 mins 37 secs
We are not Shedding you: this is our richest, creamiest episode yet. It's a Country Crockload of buttery goodness, featuring a rigorous butter taste test and some trenchant observations that will get us banned from Iceland. www.spilledmilkpodcast.co[...]
Episode 35: Scary Food II
March 31st, 2011 | 14 mins 44 secs
Like a zombie rising from your natto bowl, it's Scary Food II, and this time, thanks to listener calls, it's personal. Claire is afraid of lasagna. Jenna had an encounter with an unspeakable Finnish dessert. And Iris loves sukiyaki, except when...we[...]
Episode 34: Ramen
March 17th, 2011 | 20 mins 40 secs
Noodle, noodle, noodle all day. We're boiling up instant ramen. But wait! This isn't (just) our junk food tendencies taken to their inevitable final destination. We found some instant ramen with real depth. Dive into a cup noodle with us.
Episode 33: Parsnips
March 3rd, 2011 | 13 mins 21 secs
What's a carrot's evil twin? That's right, a parsnip! But they're far from evil. We love these sinewy roots roasted, pureed, mashed, stewed, and sauteed, and we're going to tell you how to select them and where you can st--er, how to cook them. (As [...]
Episode 32: Spouseless Eating
February 17th, 2011 | 14 mins 29 secs
You know the saying: when the spouses are away, Molly and Matthew eat soufflé. Except not really. This week, we share a piping hot Stouffer's French Bread Pizza and swap notes on peanut butter, Hot Pockets, ice cream sandwiches, and other delic[...]
Episode 31: Hot Dogs
February 3rd, 2011 | 14 mins 32 secs
This week we tackle everyone's favorite fleshy meat...uh, let's start over. This week we obsess over snappy tube steaks. No, wait. There's no good way to say this, is there? It's the hot dog episode. We love them and we're not afraid to say it.
Episode 30: Chicken Stock
January 20th, 2011 | 18 mins 15 secs
We're taking stock of the situation...with our tongues. Wait, that can't be right. We're slurping chicken stock--homemade and factory-squeezed--with surprising results and some shameful admissions along the way. Recipe: Chicken Stock. www.spilledmil[...]
Episode 29: Memories
January 6th, 2011 | 15 mins 12 secs
It's the dreaded clip show...with a twist! We're revisiting our favorite moments from our first year, but you've never heard these secret outtakes before. This ham-heavy trip down memory lane will have you clamoring for new episodes. Just like a regular clip show.
Episode 28: Fudge
December 17th, 2010 | 15 mins 45 secs
Oh, f----! We wanted to share delicious holiday fudge with you. Instead, we need therapy. And a crime scene cleanup crew. Paging the Byrd Brothers! Recipe: Chocolate Fudge.
Episode 27: Muffins
December 2nd, 2010 | 15 mins 44 secs
"Muffin" is not just a euphemism for cake. We've got bananas and blueberries on the brain, along with bran, gingerbread, and poppyseed. Recipes: Blueberry muffins; banana muffins.
Outtake: Mountain Dew
November 19th, 2010 | 2 mins 15 secs

Episode 26: Soda
November 18th, 2010 | 14 mins 48 secs
Nothing takes us back to the sick days of our youth like lemon-lime soda. Lying in bed, listening to the Walkman, hoping you won't need the strategically-placed bucket: we are taking you back in time with an all-star lineup of 7-Up, Sprite, Bubble Up, and more. Urp.
Episode 25: Puffy Snacks
November 4th, 2010 | 14 mins 44 secs
Yes, it's another junk food bender as we eat our way through several bags of puffy snacks--Cheetos, Funyuns, and their kin--in front of a live audience. Along the crunchy way, we answer important questions, like "how do they puff these things?" and [...]
