Brian, great interview segment! You should consider doing more such interviews, even if it's with just one cookbook author.

Don't love chewing on the radio.

Please don't do this every again.

I'm with you guys - the mouth sounds are totally distracting from an otherwise interesting story. Ick.

How can you smack your food on the radio like that. That's disgusting.
Your the kind of person I carefully avoid sitting near in a restaurant.
I'm especially annoyed because I wanted to hear this episode. It never occurred to me that you would ruin it completely with disgusting table manners.

Yesterday during your Bruce Davidson segment, you mentioned the rule about never talking about photography on the radio. Dessert tasting would probably be equally frowned upon. But I'm happy to have heard both of these segments. Thanks!

Sorry, but I HATE the sound of people eating, drinking, smacking their lips and licking their chops on the radio.

Frankly, food is not a subject that is ideally suited to the radio. While television allows you to "eat with your eyes", listening to people eat is actually a bit off-putting.

I really can't stand hearing people eat.

As much as I love this show, I had to turn it off. The sound of chewing was just too gross. Food on TV is great, food on the radio, not so much.
