This week, it's all about Fast Food- what makes it good, why we love it, and whether or not any of the stigma around it is even remotely justified (spoilers, it's not). First, Tom calls up Cath Gilbert, host of Fillorians United, to talk about growing up poor in the 90s, shamelessly loving McDonalds, the ins & outs of delivery french fries, and why it's so hard to get a good poutine delivered to your house. Then, Tom talks to Kevin Guo about growing up with food-positive parents in China, studying nutrition & diabetes, and how the different ways cultures view 'junk food' directly affect their nutritional value! Also: Tom ranks their Top 5 Fast Food Burgers! Do you have a favorite fast food place? Did we miss something that you think absolutely should've been mentioned?
