This is the first time I have listened to a podcast, and I wanted to do my review on the Spilled Milk episode, 156, Carrots. The first thing that impressed me was their ability to actually talk about a seemingly bland subject
I was impressed by the fact that they like carrots for 25 minutes straight, while only straying from the subject a couple of times. were able to be so constant, I’m sure they had a script, but the way Mathew and Molly talked to each other made the conversation sound so natural. It sounded like a conversation that I could have with my best friends.
There was also a surprising amount of information about different recipes and ways to eat carrots. Like a full carrot salad recipe, and more. They even threw in a weird little thing at the end about “holiday carrot pudding” which they didn’t get time to talk about but made a joke and left a link for us to check it out on our own, which I did. It was cool that they were able to add so much of this because it did seem like the podcast was full of joke and silliness too. This made it entertaining to listen to. Some of the joke were even informational, like in the beginning they were laughing about an alternative name for carrots, “early horn.”
They did go on a pretty funny rant for a couple of minutes about how baby carrots are not as good as real carrots, I actually liked this because it shows that the show is not only about being silly and talking about random things, but that they are actually concerned with heath, and the real issue of GMO and overly processed vegetables, and probably other foods as well.
