Chocolate egg cream yo I’m champ cherry pounding.

When I was younger, I heard a song on the radio and vowed to myself that one day I’d be just as cool as G. Love.

However, like most promises I make to myself, I completely forgot about it after a while. Years later, I rediscovered G. Love and now I can almost rap this song by heart.

Baby steps.

On this week’s podcast we talk to…

G LOVE

… of special sauce fame, whose new album “Sugar” just hit stores last week.  We talked to him about his line of actual special sauce, which comes in “Original Hot”, Caribbean and Thai sweet chili flavors.  He also tells us what it was like growing up in Philly with a mom who taught kids cooking classes out of their house, and how knowing what jicama was got him a job at a fancy Boston restaurant. We also got him to tell us how using cooking and sushi helped him woo his 8th grade girlfriend. At the end, we gave him a sandwich from Ink.Sack (podcast guest Michael Voltaggio’s shop) and tell him about the 90s video we uncovered of him cooking shirtless.
