Eat This: Totally Useful Nutrition

Last week we featured Totally Useless Food information with my downright hilarious guests Nick and Roy, and I loved what they shared. Their random facts and trivia about stuff even I wasn’t prepared for brought some much-needed levity to the podcast airwaves along with some pretty big laughs about all the crazy things they presented.
