Mary Roach, Oysters
Mary Roach is one of Rachel’s favorite authors. She writes brilliant nonfiction books about science and the human body that are gripping, hilarious, and usually really gross.
On this episode of YLM, Mary explains her reasons behind choosing this delicious bivalve for her final feast, Rachel digs into the myths behind oysters with Rowan Jacobsen, author of “The Essential Oyster,” and food & science collide as we meet Tom Ryan: CEO of Smashburger, and the man behind legendary fast-food favorites like McDonalds’ Flury, McGriddles, and Pizza Hut’s stuffed-crust pizza.
