John Hodgman, Eggs and the Best Pizza in Maine

Prepare to fall in (even deeper) love with John Hodgman! Rachel talks with the reliably wry and clever comedian, author, actor, and podcaster about everything from whether or not a hot dog is a sandwich to the dangers of vacationing in Maine to the egg-istentially steadying quality of a hot plate of scrambled eggs.

Speaking of a plate of eggs… how many can you hork down? Rachel and Producer Aaron head to Seattle’s legendary Beth’s Cafe to attempt to conquer their infamous 12-egg omelette, and they chat with owner Chris Dalton about owning one of the last 24 hour greasy spoon diners in the city.

And when egg-xactly did everyone starting eating eggs for breakfast? And why? Rachel Khong, author of “All About Eggs” has the answers.

Pick up John’s book “Vacationland: True Stories from Painful Beaches​” now in paperback wherever books are sold, and listen to his wonderful podcast “Judge John Hodgman” at or wherever you listen to podcasts.
