This week Ben and Norah are discussing the food we consume to tide us over to our next full meal. Yummy SNACKS! Sprinkled throughout the episode are salty stories and discussions about electric boats, happy hours, ice cream bar diets, snakes, potato salad, and “sleepy chicken.” After Norah reveals her cookie addiction, Ben reveals his Bacon number! Finally, the proverbial cherry(s) on top for a touch of sweetness are conversations about Norah playing Ben Esposito’s Donut County and Ben playing Young Horses’ Bugsnax.
