Dave Hause is back to help us rank pickles and Sir Tophamm Hatt-- plus re-rank coffee-- on the List of Every Damn Thing.
Here’s Dave’s USA Today piece about Taylor Swift being “infinitely more punk rock” than him. Jason and Jake praise the song “Gary” from Dave’s new record, because it’s an incredible song. We note that our last episode featured Dave’s brother Tim Hause. The two brothers collaborated on Blood Harmony, as well as on Tim Hause's recently-recorded album (coming out later this year). We successfully deduce that sauerkraut is both a pickled and fermented food (the same goes for kimchi). Here’s a Southern Living article about how Texans– and only Texans– eat pickles at the movie theater. We discuss different types of pickles, such as cornichons and bread-and-butter pickles (the latter of which apparently got their name because they were good for bartering for staple food items). Here’s Hannibal Buress' pickle juice bit wherein he confesses "I have a surplus of pickle juice in my apartment". We talk about Dave being a transplant from Philadelphia. Did you know that the city's name literally means "Brother Love" in Greek? Why doesn't this get mentioned more? Guy Fieri is the prime minister of Sonoma County, where Phil lives. Phil says that all businesses in the county have a picture of Fieri on the wall, and he eats and drinks for free by law. Jason uses “onion murder” as an argument for ranking pickles higher than onions. Research shows that a guy in India was once killed for onions, but it's not fair to blame the onions for this. Maybe the guy who died in a tragic accident while harvesting onions could be blamed on the onions. Phil ponders on the nature of Thomas' sentience, and whether his consciousness is a gestalt of the train itself and the humans that operate it. Jake compares it to Voltron. Sir Tophamm Hatt is originally from The Railway Series books by Wilbert & Christopher Awdry, but our frame of reference is mostly the Thomas & Friends TV show (featuring, of course, the titular star Thomas the Tank Engine). Paul Giamatti, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Patrick Stewart and Brian Cox are our nominees for portraying a live-action Topham Hatt. We shout-out some of our favorite coffee companies: Time & Tide Coffee (Biddeford, ME), Timeless Coffee (Oakland, CA) and Black Oak Coffee (Ukiah, CA). We also give praise to the Blue Danube Coffee House on Clement Street in San Francisco.
