EPISODE 100: MICHAEL BARBARO MAKES YOU GO HMMM

We’ve cried over the injustice of a missing college student in San Luis Obispo, we’ve laughed at Leah Remini cursing, we’ve thought about God with Pete Holmes and comedy with Jason Bateman. We’ve listened to thousands of hours of podcasts, from true crime, to news, to homicidal doctors and sociopathic socialites. We’ve lived through being bored in the house and in the house bored, with help in our earbuds from all the podcasts we have loved – and we’ve even added virologists to our list of favorite podcast hosts, learning what moves could possibly save our lives. Every real housewife has one, and now Obama and the Boss are at it, too. Podcasts, we love you. We have loved you so hard for 100 episodes. We play clips, we kibbitz, we wander down the conversational roads where podcasts lead us, and we share our favorites with you. This is Easy Listening, a podcast about podcasts. Teresa Strasser and Gina Grad welcome you to the show.

Butcher Box
We are getting dangerously close to spring cleaning territory and I’ve already started. I’ve suddenly been energized to toss soooo many things to make more space.
○ You might not love cleaning, but you can’t help feeling great about taking care of your space.
○ And taking care of what goes on your plate is just as important.
● ButcherBox helps you make meal-time moments feel special year-round.
○ Each month, they send a box of the highest quality meat for a better price than the grocery store.
○ Giving you more time to spend cooking and sharing delicious, high quality meals with family and friends.
I absolutely love the pork butt that I toss in the slow cooker and make amaaaazing carnitas that last for several meals. Everything is good but that is my current favorite.
And because I know how high quality the meat is, I can save the fat that I cook with and use it for other dishes!
Butcher Box shows right to my door and I know it’s high quality and something I feel good about feeding my family and feeding myself.
● Every month, ButcherBox ships a curated selection of high-quality meat and it’s waiting for me right there at the door.
○ All meat is free of antibiotics and added hormones
○ Each box has about 10 pounds of meat, which is enough for 24 individual meals and absolutely PERFECT for meal prep and freezing if you make too much, like I tend to do.
● ButcherBox is a no-brainer.
○ The best part is I don’t have to go to the grocery store since it comes right to me. 
○ It’s the way meat should be.
● Right now, ButcherBox is offering new members ground beef for life.
○ That’s TWO pounds of ground beef in every box for the life of their subscription.
● Just go to ButcherBox.com/EASY
That’s ButcherBox.com/ EASY

Feel free to mention my day job. For a long time, I kept all of my different worlds separate. Part of my Sergeant duties are Public Information Officer, so I’d do local TV spots for work, which is how most people knew me. Well, when I started doing some morning TV grilling spots, it was a little confusing for some. When I was out at a crash scene and a guy yelled out to me, “Loved your grilled bananas,” I knew the lines had been completely blurred and embraced it all.
