Take some time this week to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of chocolate cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world and working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. This week, we shamelessly and unapologetically turn to food for comfort. You can’t blame us.
So if you’re also the type who needs the occasional total break from anything of consequence in the real world in order to cope with day to day life…then quite honestly you should’ve subscribed to this show long ago. Yet this week Dan “Grim” Shea, Marke, and Jimmy The Gent intentionally dumb it down to a totally unprecedented level in a bold experiment of mindless distraction — with all the empty calories of a bowl of 80s breakfast cereal but half as substantial — behold, the podcast equivalent of an Instagram food pic! Yes, Saturday Morning Cereal finally just talks about harmless, inoffensive, common-denominator-for-all-lifeforms FOOD, from cereal to dinner! LISTEN as your intrepidly vapid hosts talk milk levels, serving sizes, and even the always controversial Continental Breakfast! MARVEL at the sheer pointlessness of a discussion about what it takes to be taken seriously as a comfort food dish, or why Brunch is just Breakfast and Lunch joining forces once a week to try to steal Dinner’s usual social dominance! STAND IN WONDER as you realize how just reading that last sentence tricked your brain out of thinking about some of the horrible out of control existential crises in the world right now! And to bring it all home, we invite you to watch The Dinner Party (out on VOD everywhere June 9) written produced directed by & starring our old friends Miles Doleac and Lindsay Anne Williams. We talk to them about making a distractingly good horror movie right when people need one and why suddenly drive-ins have all the power in Hollywood. Really!
