Y@ Speak: Chicken and pie



This week there was a juxtaposition of extreme interest in the Olympics and the athletic perfection it represents and an equally extreme interest in constantly talking about fried chicken sandwiches and miniature pies. In other food news, Anthony Bourdain really likes Company Burger and local chef Matt Murphy wins Chopped. This Y@ Speak is making me hungry. Also this week: Saints! Mars!

Y@ Speak 7/30-8/5
