The entire episode in one picture.
The wait is over! Jawn Fulla returns to the Reducer Studios to join Brian and Joe in celebrating the 15 month anniversary of the Reducer Podcast.
All the classic elements that got us a passing mention on the Best Food Blog In The Twin Cities are here for this (possibly 13 or 14 month) anniversary extravaganza: food talk; restaurant gossip; news; frequent cursing; clever poop jokes; borderline racism towards the proud and hard-working people of Mexico PLUS: some of the funniest podcast skits you’ll ever hear.

Reducer Podcast Episode 204: The 15 Month Anniversary Spectacular.
The guys start out this very special episode with a discussion about what they’ve been cooking and eating; leading to Fulla describing his visit to the critically acclaimed local restaurant [NAME REDACTED]. Joe has some nice things to say about The Bachelor Farmer and Pittsburgh Blue. Somehow this leads to a rant about the lack of diversity among Uptown, Minneapolis restaurants before Joe gets into the news.
There’s some talk of food additives and a call-back to one of the few coherent moments of Chopped and Screwed. A story about Coors leads to a lengthy discussion on the new high-alcohol light beers, a horrific absinthe flashback and a love letter from Brian to the steaks at Rick’s Cabaret.
An obvious Polish joke leads to an even more obvious Mexican Joke and a flashback to Joe and Brian’s days on the WQUE radio station.
CAUTION: This skit is recommended for Spanish speakers only!
A conversation ensues about Jean Paul Gautier handling the Coke can redesign and the greatness that is Mexican Coke. This leads to a story about a glowing review of the new Grand Forks, ND Olive Garden and a callback to the earlier stripper-steak conversation.
Joe’s wrapping up of the news via Alison Rosen’s famous Acecast sign-off starts the long awaited debate between Joe and Fulla about whether or not Adam Carolla is a bigger racist than Kanye West.
Jawn reveals his secret recipie for Orange Chicken which will give you a craving for bad Chinese food. Joe and Brian nerd-out about The Walking Dead (which Joe kinda started to hate since this episode was recorded), Brian advocates theft of intellectual property before they both recall their days working for National Public Radio.
Go is opportunity.
The guys discuss their favorite food-related fictional programs and Joe fucks up his usually solid Tony Montana impersonation with a slide into Eddie Murphy’s dad. This provides fodder for a conversation about the use of the other “F” word in comedy and how comedians from Louis CK to Chris Rock handle the issue.
South Park's classic F-word episode.
A brief shit-talk about bikers leads into the greatest mash-up in the history of Western Civilization. They should have sent a poet.
Aye, but a band of knaves came upon this place laden with flagons of barley-broth and hempen wisps. The particle you inquire of was well lost.
Oh snap- this time we did.
As our final bit; we present to you Shakespeare’s classic drama:
Shamiq: The Moor of Shaolin
