Bubble&Squeak is a podcast with uncanny sounds, funny interludes, and stories—most weird, many true. Like most of my stage shows, this new show is difficult to explain. It is VERY different from Citizens Climate Radio. It is a little like an older show I did, Climate Stew, but Bubble&Squeak is not a climate-change themed show. I think it is a Peterson’s weird random thoughts-themed show. It is an audio version of the bubble and squeak dish.
According to Wikipedia
Bubble and squeak is a traditional British breakfast made from boiled potatoes and cabbage. In modern times, it is a dish made with the shallow-fried leftover vegetables from a roast dinner. The main ingredients are potato and cabbage but carrots, peas, Brussels sprouts, or any other leftover vegetables may be added. The chopped vegetables (and cold chopped meat if used) are fried in a pan together with mashed potatoes or crushed roast potatoes until the mixture is well-cooked and brown on the sides. The dish is so named because the cabbage makes bubbling and squeaking sounds during the cooking process.
You throw into a pan whatever you have and fry it up, and hope it all works together. Usually it does. The logo design is by Christine Bakke. The theme song is Worthless by The Jellyrox (available on iTunes, Spotify.) The show is part of the new Rock Candy Network of podcasts. I do a podcast with Liam Hooper that is also on Rock Candy. It is called The Bible Bash Podcast and is a project of Ministries Beyond Welcome. You can find Bubble&Squeak on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, SoundCloud, Stitcher, TuneIn, and GooglePlay.
Each episode of Bubble&Squeak will have three parts.
The first episode is entitled Naked Mugging.
Part one: “Is that all you got?” The story about about a real life mugging, and here I thought it was going to be a hook up. It is an weird and important story (yes there is nudity) because it is when I realized I wanted to live.
Part two: Radio Drama: A prank call to the past (Hembach’s General Store in 1944.) I call this country store in 1944 and ask for tofu and kombucha.
Part three: A Sound Slice–a tricycle in Manila December 2018. Each show will include one of these. It is audio I recorded during one of my travels or even at home. I set the scene and play about 30 seconds to give you a soundscape.
As of today I have three episodes available for you. Each one is 15 minutes each. New episodes come out each month.
