    I loved this episode. I love food talk and Jessie was such a great guest. I hope you have him back.

    This was such a great episode, like a “main feed TBGWT” Lip Smacking Good! Jesse was so awesome! Great questions Rod and Karen.

    And Rod, this is for you: (I tried to find the full commercial that I swear I saw in the 80s-90s with the dude playing Sam and Dave on the microwave, but this was the best I could do):


    You both rule, all the best!
