Join hosts Avery and Lena Cochrane (and sometimes guests) as they sample, rate, and talk about fun foods. History and facts are discussed from treats such as flavoured Oreos, to pumpkin spice, to types of boxed dressing. Listen to an amusing debate about the assessment of a different food theme each week. This couple may not always agree, but they will for sure ridicule each other for not seeing eye to eye. Listen weekly to hear delightful banter about yummy foods!

91 - Lena, Avery and Andrea try liquorice from around the world.

November 27, 2019

Welcome to the Mess Hall Podcast, part of the @albertapodnet powered by @atbfinancial.

This week, Avery, Lena and Andrea Curry-Hansell taste test so many types of liquorice: filled, soft, salty, and mint to name a few.  Listen to what our favourites and not-so favourites are. 


This week's podcast shout out is going to a pair of podcasts. First: on The 2 and Out podcast, Travis Currah and Brazilian Ty bring you a CFL podcast that focuses on fantasy, league news and everything there is to know about Canadian football. Second: Eskimo Empire Podcast, a weekly chat about the CFL with Andrew, Mike and Kayla, three Edmonton fans with Green and Gold in their veins. Both had a great season talking about the CFL.
