Dave and Chris explore Dave’s thoughts from his time in a homemade sensory-deprivation chamber (a New York apartment with blackout blinds), including why stars are the ratings system of choice, Vlad the Impaler, and The Makanai: Cooking for the Maiko House on Netflix. Then, they theorize about how gambling and betting could change the world of food, from the James Beard Awards to futures betting in restaurants. Other topics include Pokémon supremacy, the pure joy of Mario Bros., the best sauce for french fries, and kimchi made via genetic algorithm.
