After a lengthy absence; the Seventh Episode of The Reducer Podcast decides to grace us with its presence. About damn time.
The ghost of Julia Child starts things off right, before the episode quickly devolves into a verbal free-for-all that fails to live up to the promise of its lengthy production time. Topics include; Tyra Banks; Liz Taylor; Cake Shows; Cake vs. Pie (again); Nutrition labels in restaurants; Bartending Records; The Death of Soup; Vegetarian McGangbangs; Medicating with food; Beefmato; Radiation in Japanese food; Keeping Kosher for Passover; KFP Coke; and Movies that make us hungry.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks on the Reducer campus, but not a lot of that is showing up on the site. From the many emails and carrier pigeons we’ve received from you, we’ve been able to glean that you want more content and you want it now.
Fair enough. Expect a new podcast tomorrow and another later in the week. We’ve got photos and video from this years seder dinner, grilling recipes and further Bacon Burger Dog updates.
Seriously. We’ve got a ton of photos and stuff to share with you
If you haven’t already listened to sixth Reducer Podcast, do yourself a favor and give it a listen. In it we describe an informal challenge to create a Bacon Burger Dog for the 21st Century; and here’s where we officially start that challenge.
THE BACON BURGER DOG CHALLENGE:
Object: To recreate a new version of Cliff Huxtable’s esteemed Bacon Burger Dog (video above)
Take advantage of the next couple of months of grilling weather to develop your recipe. Experiment. Be creative. When you think you’ve got a winning recipe; take a picture of it and submit it with a brief description of your technique and ingredients. The winner will be highlighted on the website and be featured on an episode of The Reducer Podcast. All that; and they will receive our undying respect.
The submission deadline is June 3oth and the winner will be announced on July 3rd, so that way everyone will be able to attempt to grill their own version of the recipe on Independence Day.
The winner will be awarded for creativity, use of the ingredients and potential deliciousness.
Don’t just give us a retread of the Huxtable recipe. Go nuts with this one.
Don’t eat meat? Give us a vegan version that doesn’t suck.
Don’t eat pork?Give us a halal or kosher version that Headchef doesn’t hate.
Don’t eat red meat? Perhaps you’ve heard of turkey?
Submit your ideas and photos below in the comments section, or click on the tabs on the left side of this page and submit your entry through Facebook or Twitter or email us directly at email@example.com.
We encourage you readers to submit as many times as you want, as long as you’re not just sending a slightly modified version of the same thing over and over.
Those of you lucky enough to have your lives, take them with you. However, leave the limbs you've lost. They belong to me now.
Update: Looks like it didn’t take nearly as much work and and butchering of the site to get everything working as we thought it would. The good news is podcasts are all downloadable again and RSS has been enabled for the entire site. So subscribe away and tell your friends; Reducer Network is going to bombard you with even more kick-ass food content.
If you stumble onto Reducer tonight (Sunday, April 9th) looking to download one of our famous podcasts; please get used to the idea of not being able to do so between 1:AM and 8:AM (Eastern).
In order to make our site friendlier for RSS subscribers, other blogs and to make our podcasts available to iTunes users; we’re going to do some serious re-construction on the site code.
Many posts will still be available (in case you need to make Menudo at 3:AM), but unless we say otherwise, Podcasts will not be available for download until Sunday morning.
Once we get the site in proper working order; you can look forward to more podcasts; more recipes; more food and cooking stories and brand new features ranging from a heavily-documented Passover Seder to the Bacon-Burger-Dog Challenge.
Thanks to everyone who’s put up with our sub-par site mechanics so far. We promise to bring you more of what you like in an easier to digest format.
