Marco Collins, Eggs Benedict

Legendary radio DJ, Marco Collins, was the first disc jockey in the world to play records by Nirvana, Weezer, Beck, Pearl Jam, Garbage, and many others, when he was music director and DJ at Seattle’s 107.7 The End in the ’90s. Breaking these bands earned him a spot in the Rock & Rock Hall of Fame.

Marco loves breakfast, so host Rachel Belle takes a field trip to Glo’s, one of Seattle’s long standing diners, to try his favorite eggs Benedict and learn the secret of their hallowed hollandaise.

And everybody knows, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” but did you know that phrase was actually a marketing ploy by General Mills to get Americans to eat cold cereal in the morning? Culinary historians Ken Albala and Heather Arndt Anderson join the show to explore the fascinating history of American breakfast. And! The even more fascinating history of cereal, via the Kellogg’s brothers, who believed corn flakes could curb one of the world’s great evils: masturbation.
