This week on Chewing, co-hosts Louisa Chu and Monica Eng go behind the curtain, with the stories behind their own headlines! Seen the Clickhole egg video yet? You will, and our very own producer Iris Lin made it! She’ll share behind the scenes drama, and how to make your own viral food video. Then Monica saw the world famous Billy Goat Tavern (Cheezborger cheezborger cheezborger!) serving fries so she investigates Cheeps-gate. Plus she uncovered her audio postcard with late local legend Olga of Olga’s Deli. Then, stop the presses! Louisa brings in the very first food Monica won’t eat in the game we like to call Will She Eat It?! (Photo: Billy Goat cheezborger at Navy Pier in Chicago, by Louisa Chu)

This week on Chewing, co-hosts Louisa Chu and Monica Eng DOGGY BAG it! But how safe is it? And why don’t we always do it? What’s the science and culture behind the one thing we can control to reduce food waste worldwide? Monica talks to the Undersecretary of Agriculture and for once they’re not fighting. Instead they agree on one of the most important ways to cut food waste in the nation. Then we call up extreme doggy bagger, Serious Eats founder Ed Levine. And Louisa brings Monica and producer Iris Lin a Leap Year leftover, but Will She Eat It? (Photo: Raccoon doggy bag from annual Coon Feed in Delafield, Wisconsin, by Louisa Chu)
