Episode 47 – Sugar Madness!!!


In episode 47 of the Constant Crisis News & Opinion self-help and humor podcast, Ham & Chuck talk about how March Madness puts the IT in pITy, drink in the deliciousness of Mayor Bloomberg’s Big Gulp Gallipoli (look it up – it was either that or the Battle of Sodaloo), and marvel at a U.S. Department of Agriculture that is so versatile, it can cause obesity with one hand while fighting it with the other. Remember the USDA theme song: “Just 87.2 billion spoonfuls of sugar bought with taxpayer money help keep prices propped up.” (Feel free to check the math – it’s right.)
