There’s more to college life than boring classes, snazzy dorm art, and end of semester parties. Snacks make up an integral part of the college experience, and how else could you get through cramming for that biology final without some tasty treats along the way?
Luckily for us all, there’s a podcast that can help shape your snack schedule and guide you on the ultimate journey of treatdom – Mike and Tom Eat Snacks! The MATES podcast is Michael Ian Black (of Wet Hot American Summer fame) and Tom Cavanagh (Ed, the bowling alley lawyer – anyone?!) and together they have formed the ultimate voice in snacking today. From York Peppermint Patties to Chex Mix, no snack is safe once it’s been through the PER system. They pick. They eat. They rate. The snack is never the same.
Just to mix things up on Mike and Tom Eat Snacks, every once in a while they’ll throw in the Wacko Snacko, in which listeners (referred to as viewers-who-aren’t-viewers) recommend unusual combinations like Keebler Cheese & Peanut Butter Crackers with Pepsi or Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa (episode 13) or Planters Mixed Nuts (not the wackiest, but still snacktastic!). Occasionally they’ll branch out from the standard Cheetos or Almond Joys to explore more cultural snacks, like Japanese Kit Kats or edamame. Really, there’s no limit to the snack insanity.
MATES is recommended for college-age or above, and you can listen free on iTunes!
