Episode #206 (recap): The Heroes’ Takes

This week, we’re all heroes at LRB. Mike saved his family from conflict by sharing a heartfelt moment, even if it was only because his wires were tapped. Ann brazenly rejects the idea of “Gleeification,” despite only being our third-favorite babysitter. And Bobby offers to put his life and body on the line to settle whether or not Taco John’s is any good—if you’ll pay for the trip. And on top of all of that, we take time off from our important work to recap the latest week of TBTL. So join us as we climb the pyramid of deliciousness all the way to its pork peak, and feast on an idealized Dagwood from our favorite Mongolian Quiznos. It’s sure to make for some exciting at-plates. 

Be sure to check out Bean Baxter's ridiculously adorable old house, and the chocolate buffet at the Langham in Boston
