Breaking Bread: Do You or Don't You?

Everyone loves bread. Except for the tons of people who can't eat it. How do you feel about it? Come on, be honest! In this episode Kate and Rick discuss all things bread. How much bread does the average person eat every year? What is NASA’s preferred space bread? How many loaves did a "housewife" in the 1900’s have to bake? Bread was central to the formation of early human societies. Funnily enough, it’s central to the formation of current human waistlines. From its status as one of the most ancient cooked foods to the role it plays in religious ceremonies, you knead (see what we did there) to know its history. Also, if you’ve been in the market for some really bad jokes about bread, Rick has things covered.
