Eat Your Heart Out is a podcast exploring snack culture that blossomed in 90's American suburbia. Hosted by husband/wife Eric and Ashley Morgan, along with fellow junk food fiend April Vahey, the trio eats and discusses those nostalgic snacks from our childhood along with what's currently hanging on store shelves.
We take a tasty jaunt around our favorite local guilty pleasures with master Charlottean, Erin Breeden. April starts rubbing her thighs vigorously in an attempt to deal with euphoric pallet overload. Ashley forgets that Amanda was our first guest. Eric almost forgot to record the episode. Let's dive in!

Cereal is a podcast from this American life (sorry Sarah Koenig but cereal is more American than Serial so I'm stealing your elevator pitch). Cereal tells one story - a true story - over the first course of the day, breakfast.
Quite literally the Morning Star, cereal follows a hauntingly similar plot arch to that of Lucifer. From humble beginnings created during radical religious-based dietary movements of the latter half of the 1800s, cereal has fallen from a healthy alternative to the "evils of coffee" and overindulgence of morning sausage consumption to a primary sugar blasted processed grain barely considered food.
Eric: Should we censor any bad language for this podcast?
April: Yeah maybe let's not cuss since our families may listen to this.
During Episode #2:
April says 'anal leakage' approx 17 times
The above recount of our short-lived existence as a family-friendly podcast can also be used as an analogy for Lay's alternative flavor strategy. Starting innocently enough with the first variant 'Sour Cream & Onion' in the 70's to the peculiarly named 'Numb & Spicy Hot Pot'.
Join us as we talk about and try a wide array of American's favorite snack, the Lay's Potato Chip.
