Sam Tripoli is here, and we get right into it. I’d attempt to make show notes but this one is all over the place. We talk Basecamp, a local hipster breakfast place in Josh’s neighborhood. We start out talking about the calls we missed over the years. We start off by naming names of the worst people in comedy, as well as some of the best. Sam shares his Golden Corral PTSD. We recap what it takes to be a “Hollywood Fat,” and when it gets to be Josh’s turn. We discuss the magic of 4-dick chess, and how it is best played. We talk about the pack mentality of the internet and how nobody makes sense. Sam invents Christmas Cake, and its better than you could ever imagine. We discuss how comedians terrify the entertainment industry. Oh yeah, and we discuss Josh’s recent twitter beef. You know which one.
Season 2 is underway! Brian Redban is here, and we start out talking about how weird it is that we’ve practically been neighbors for years, and yet somehow have avoided each other at all of the same restaurants. Brian almost met Megan Fox one time thanks to the news, and Josh met Kiersten Dunst one time while driving uber. We’re apparently both old men because we have different favorite neighborhood diners. We talk about our favorite celebrities, and why sometimes meeting your heroes can be disappointing. We talk about meeting at Ike’s Love & Sandwiches, and our visit to local Taco Shop, Guisados. We share our favorite appliances, and our dream kitchens. We talk about growing up and learning about diversity, and selling out for women’s attention. There's also the usual comedy talk, and we play the part of food historians pretty well in this episode. Enjoy!
Listen to this live commentary of our third episode of #GinormousFood on Food Network! This episode features host Josh Denny, Comedian Adam Tod Brown from the Unpopular Opinion show, and Sound Recordist Jacob Falls, whatever that means. 
Listen to this live commentary of our second episode of #GinormousFood on Food Network! This episode features host Josh Denny, Comedian Adam Tod Brown from the Unpopular Opinion show, and Josh’s friend Sean, who was on set for all of the Philly fun
Only one day after Josh bragged to Vanessa Johnston about the newness of his car, it breaks down on the way to Mexican food with comedian and actress Emily Hanley. We decided to record it, and share all the worst parts of a car breaking down in LA with all of you! It’s a million degrees (again). Do we make it to lunch? Listen and find out!
Josh and Adam are coming to you LIVE (well not now) from the Unpopular Opinion studios for the first time ever. We take turns recapping our holiday delights. We both spent it with our significant other’s families and tasting their weird ethnic cuisines. Josh shares his creepy technique for making the best holiday Turkey. Adam goest to the mat for StoveTop stuffing, whatever that means. Josh describes Persian food, and why he hates it so much. We talk about Christmas movies, which this year includes the new Mark Wahlberg flick “Patriot’s Day.” Josh loved it, but we both feel like it lacked the necessary amount of Will Ferrell. We talk about how amazing Gus’ Fried Chicken is, and Josh imagines his life with a new wife. We discuss Chick-fil-A, and how we can’t stop eating it no matter their politics. We wrap the episode talking about Josh’s show “Ginormous Food” which premieres January 6th on Food Network!
#213 - SWAPCAST! with the Meghan Jenkins ShowWe’re doing something a little different on this episode of Pigs! This is a Swapcast with the Meghan Jenkins Show. Meghan had been trying to get me on her show for a while, and after spending a great day with her and Brian, we’re putting it out on both feeds! We still incorporate your favorite part of ‘Pigs with a visit to Little Dom’s in Los Feliz. Joined by the always charming Neda Gheybi, we talk comedy, and head right into the MJS interview format. Enjoy!
Writer, podcast, and provocateur Isaac Simpson is here, and we start off by talking Thanksgiving recipes and Turkey hacks. Get your sundial ready, because these brines take centuries. Josh has thrown out the recipe book, and starts telling people how to “season to taste.” Josh thinks food blogs are getting more gratuitous than ography, and some things (like making your own cinnamon rolls) can’t be unseen. Getting groceries delivered for Thanksgiving seems like a great idea, until none of it shows up. We talk about Lisa Bloom, and the startling realization that all lawyers are still lawyers. We talk about Isaac’s podcast “Not a Huge Fan” w/Charles Disney, and how Charles loves to stir shit. We talk about likability in comedy and whether or not it’s actually important. We talk about societies quickness to labeling, vs. truly researching, testing, and understanding problems. We talk about the recent rash of Hollywood harassment allegations - are they all good intentioned? What are the possible side effects? Enjoy this long episode that would’ve been longer if we didn’t stop recording for an hour.
Listen to this live commentary of our fifth episode of #GinormousFood on Food Network! This episode features host Josh Denny, Comedian Adam Tod Brown from the Unpopular Opinion show, and Nashville musician and America Idol alum Janell Wheeler, who appeared in the episode.
We’re finally back in the UnPops studio with Adam Tod Brown after a few months off. Comedian Joe DeRosa joins us after eating a ton of food with Josh at a Korea-town favorite known as Beer Belly. Joe is struggling with the carb-load right out of the gate. Joe finds out that Adam and Josh are the worst people to discuss moderation with. Joe talks TV writing with us, and we all share our nightmares of crappy network notes. We share stories of adjusting to West Coast food after growing up on the east coast, and share our favorite gravy recipes. Joe hates unnecessary sex scenes in movies, and Josh surprisingly agrees because airplanes. This one is all over the place (aren’t they all?) so enjoy!
We’re finally back, after a few weeks on the road filming food TV. Josh introduces comedian Tony Vinh to breadfaceblog on Instagram. Josh is confused by Asian food , and how on earth a woman that smashes her face into bread is verified before he is. Tony vents (his new name is Tony Vents btw) about a recent experience at El Pollo Loco. Spoiler Alert: Rage contained inside. We talk about the best BBQ in all of Los Angeles, which is found in Huntington Park at a place called Ray’s. We review the good and bad in the abundance of recently released comedy specials, and talk about what “IT” actually is in show business.
Listen to this live commentary of our premiere episode of #GinormousFood on Food Network! This episode features host Josh Denny, Comedian Adam Tod Brown from the Unpopular Opinion show, and season one Director David Konschnik.
It’s #GinormousFood meets #Unwrapped as Josh sits down with legendary TV host Marc Summers. Neda joins us as we recap a delicious lunch at Beverly Hills’ own Jewish Deli, Nate & Al’s. Josh is already cheating on his Keto diet with Corned Beef Sandwiches. Marc and Josh talk about the best cheesesteaks in their native Philadelphia. We talk about being Jewish in show business, and how the times have changed. Marc talks about his early days in radio and stand-up, and we talk about how sensitive audiences have gotten in the past 40 years. The internet has definitely changed things, and Marc shares great stories of dealing with online trolls. This one bounces all over the place, as we deal with some background noise, but we had a blast anyway. Enjoy!
Josh is joined by Vanessa Johnston for a super hot carcast after eating Thai food at Jitlada in Hollywood. Vanessa spent the entire lunch insisting Josh isn’t fat, and then begins the podcast immediately referencing his girth. We talk Jitlada, which is Johnathan Gold’s favorite Thai place, despite the fact that we both don’t know his name. This one is all over the place, and filled with distractions from heat and Los Angeles cityscape. Enjoy!
In one of our longest episodes yet, Josh sits down with Comedian and Ellen staff writer Adam Yenser, also known as Kevin the Cashier. We start off talking about Hungry Crowd, Toluca Lake’s newest cafe/restaurant, despite the unwanted adult supervision. Josh hits peak “Larry David” in his nuanced restaurant complains, so take note. We talk about comedy battlegrounds in Stand-Up, Sketch, Improv, and TV writer’s rooms in today’s politically charged climate. Josh brags about his ballin’ in unit laundry, which is the highest luxury in Los Angeles - and also leads to the classic “laundry room fight club” story. We discuss people’s lack of compassion in general, but particularly in LA traffic. Josh shares one of his all time favorite Uber stories. Adam talks about his climb through the ranks in the industry, which highlights a crazy time in late night TV history. We talk comedy, controversy, influences, and technique (which everyone loves). Josh is excited that white guys are the new black guys. We dive into comedy in politics and politics in comedy, and what it’s like being libertarian or conservative in today’s landscape. Oh, and if you want Weinstein talk, get ready. Could there ever be a conservative SNL or Daily Show? Let’s Discuss!
Los Angeles Chargers starting Right Guard Kenny Wiggins is here, and we get into sports really fast. We talk about the common misconceptions of NFL players. We talk about Kenny’s story from undrafted Free Agent to starter over 7 years (which is pretty incredible). We talk about the growing concern of CTE in the NFL, and some of the misconceptions of the general public about player safety and general safety. We talk about who eats the most on the team, shocker - it’s not who you’d expect. We go down the rabbit hole of food, and this one turns into food commentary. Kenny had the perfect restaurant concept stolen from him, and we’re not happy about it. Josh shares stories about rude fans and unexpected hecklers. We check out the Carving Board in Burbank, and talk about what separates the greats from the not-so-greats. Also, bring back sit down pizza places! We wrap up talking about “Last Chance U” on Netflix, and how it compares to coaching throughout sports. We also talk about heated NFL rivalries between players. Enjoy!
We’re finally back! After about two months off, we’re finally back! Josh returns with his girlfriend Neda after two months out of town filming #GinormousFood. Josh built a new studio in the apartment. We talk about Neda’s weak stomach, and where we poop and eat in our apartment. We celebrate Josh’s 34th birthday with a belated dinner at legendary Hollywood steakhouse Musso & Frank, which lives up to the hype. We talk “The Big Sick,” and how we think it will be a big hit at this years academy awards. Oh yeah, and Burbank is on fire. Enjoy!
The last episode of March of The Pigs. Josh and Neda talk about what’s next.
Listen to this live Q&A session in celebration of our first six episodes of #GinormousFood. We’re joined as always by Unpops Host and Comedian Adam Tod Brown, and Josh’s girlfriend Neda Gheybi.
We’re finally back to normal March of the Pigs episodes after doing all of our bite companions, which involved several technical difficulties that we troubleshoot in the beginning of this episode. Josh shares his recent battle with Silent (Acid) Reflux. We talk about the logistical nightmare of recording podcasts while traveling. Adam forces Josh to try Indian food for the first time, and it goes better than expected. It comes from Gill’s in LA, which operates out of a more than questionable hotel in Los Angeles. Too many new restaurants have awful and ridiculous concepts, and there aren’t enough Artisan Pork Rinds. We finally crack the code on the difference between radio station call letters. Josh pleads with his listeners to produce a candy hallway for the new Unpops studio. We wrap up reminiscing about comedy movies when we grow up, and our naming of the “Green Tea Party” leads to a lengthy political debate. Bon Appetit!
Tony Vinh is back, and we pick up where we left off talking Ray’s BBQ - spoiler alert: It’s the best. We talk about great food documentaries on Amazon Prime, Fires in Burbank, and Josh’s history with former Strikeforce fighter Brett “Da Grim” Rogers. We devolve into entitlement around human behavior, and how technology’s instant gratification has raised our expectations. We talk about the new documentary “What the Health,” and how insane some of the claims are, and the problem with scientific studies and research habits. Lots of good stuff in this one. Enjoy!
