Lake Street Dive: Ritz Crackers, Cream Cheese and Pickles & Chocolate Covered Pretzels

Lake Street Dive’s singer, Rachael Price, and drummer, Mike Calabrese, have been buddies since college, when they formed their first band together at Boston’s New England Conservatory of Music. Years and years of touring, and eating every meal together on the road, means they know each other’s eating habits inside out. But there was one thing they didn’t know about each other: their last meals!

Through Rachael’s last meal we’ll learn the history of America’s favorite snack food and then, inspired by Mike’s last meal, we’ll hop down a babysitting rabbit hole. founder, Genevieve Thiers, answers every babysitter’s question: can you really help yourself to anything you want in your charge’s fridge and pantry?! And we discuss the role of food in The Baby-Sitters Club books with Marisa Crawford, co-editor of a new book of essays and art, We Are the Baby-Sitters Club, and writer Jennifer Epperson who wrote a critical essay about Claudia Kishi, the series’ beloved junk food junky.
