EPISODE 110: DYING ALONE WITH A WEIRD BOX

What’s left after a life? Can a box of artifacts from the box of a man who died indigent tell a story that illuminates something about the human condition. IT’s not Pandora’s box, it’s Matthew McGill’s and a new podcast series serves up one beautiful un-boxing. We play clips, we kibbitz – this is Easy Listening, a podcast about podcasts. I’m Teresa Strasser and Gina Grad welcome you to the show.

PORK PANKO

I wanna talk about my favorite go-to kitchen ingredient that I’ve been using for so long, I finally reached out to the company and told them I need to start talking about them on the show…
Two words – PORK. PANKO. 
With more protein per ounce than beef jerky, zero carbs and a high tolerance for heat (so it gets all crispy), Pork Panko is my secret ingredient at almost every meal!
I’ve used it in a million casseroles as a crisp topping on cauliflower Mac n cheese, i use it in meatballs, I make bomb ass bar-style chicken tenders and onion rings with it…the possibilities are ENDLESS. I even sprinkled them over Brussels sprouts last night and they were PERFECTION. 
With the rise low-carb eating, pork panko is the perfect addition to any dish that calls for breadcrumbs because it adds an umami crisp without the carbs. 
It’s made with only two ingredients—salt and pork skin—it takes carbs and gluten out of the equation and it tastes amazing! 
You might be thinking, “but Gina! Pork rinds have a funky smell and are too oily for me to cook with!”
To that, I’d say, “your pork panko prayers have been answered bc this breadcrumb substitute has no over powering smell and is literally like a light, fluffy magical pork dust!”
Bacon’s heir products are sold at a bunch of stores and even on Amazon but the best and CHEAPEST way to get them is directly through their website, baconsheir.com (pronounced Bacon’s Air and spelled B-A-C-O-N-S-H-E-I-R) where you can get 10% off your purchase by using the code ‘easylistening.’
Give it a try and lemme know what you think! 

Our podcast feature this week is titled “Stay Away from Matthew Magill” – Trailer
When Matthew Magill died alone in the woods on the Florida-Georgia border, he left behind a box filled with the artifacts of an incredible life: from Broadway in the 1970s, to a 747 hijacking, to the culture of drugs and luxury cars in 1980s Florida. A series of coincidences leads reporter Eric Mennel to the box, sending him on a five-year search to understand the truth about its owner. But as Mennel learns who Matthew MaGill really was, he is confronted with questions about his own life, his own mistakes, and his own family secrets.
A friend of a friend somehow got a box of his old stuff — he moved to an abandoned trailer and asked this dude to keep a box of random stuff.
