WEIRD, WILD DRINKING TRADITIONS and a LADY WHO CRUSHES THINGS WITH HER BREASTS

This week’s podcast is all about the weird, wild drinking traditions in our world, plus some random facts, which led us down a wormhole (thanks, Dee!) to discover a woman who crushes things with her breasts. We hope she’s okay. Allegedly, she has a house on an island in Maine. Maybe we’re neighbors?   RESOURCES https://www.thrillist.com/vice/17-weird-drinking-laws-from-around-the-world-crazy-liquor-laws https://www.huffpost.com/entry/worlds-strangest-drinking-customs_n_5758554 https://www.lastnightoffreedom.co.uk/ideas/drinking-traditions-around-the-world/ World’s top 10 strangest drinking rituals FOOD HISTORY: The History Of Toasting To Your Health 10 Weird and Interesting Facts About Alcohol That Will Surprise You ...

Why Do People Love Hot Chicken Wings and Will Carrie Survive the Hiccups

This week on LOVING THE STRANGE, we stayed away from the paranormal and delved into (a tiny bit) why people love hot sauce and hot chicken wings. Carrie hiccuped her way through the vegan version of wings, which were sort of peach-puree nuggets while Shaun went full-on carnivore, gnawing on the bones. We talked a bit about the Heatonist, Gotcha! (Carrie’s favorite 80s movie), which came first the chicken or the egg, and how a lot of people who like hot sauce are thrill seekers, but some are just used to it. They grew up with it. They like its flavor or they’re super competitive. There’s more on that in our resources! Secret Aardvark article What is a Scoville Unit? Honestly, the episode was chaos and Carrie just hiccuped all the way through it. LET’S HANG OUT! HEY! DO YOU WANT TO SPEND MORE TIME TOGETHER?
