We don’t know what’s more exciting: that our very first feed me kc podcast is finally up on iTunes or that iTunes categorized it as “explicit.” Either way, we hope you’ll listen. If you don’t, you’ll miss us interviewing chef Patrick Ryan about his now-famous Port Fonda food truck, his soon-to-open Westport restaurant (with a projected date), his take on “Mexican” food, and how he views his role in the emerging Kansas City food scene. You’ll also miss me — with a full-on case of laryngitis — interviewing Food Network star Aaron Sanchez about his new Leawood restaurant, Mestizo. You might actually want to miss hearing me very confidently pretend I know what goes in a Manhattan (I don’t, I looked it up later), but that’s another story for another day.
I promise you don’t want to miss the audio debut of our favorite feature, “Put It In My Mouth.”
As Montell Jordan says, “This is how we do it.”

The feed me kc Drinking Game
Because we have a good sense of humor about our first attempt at podcasting (read: we want to make fun of ourselves before you get a chance to), we invite you to play the official feed me kc Drinking Game. To participate, simply take a shot of something — perhaps a Manhattan, with VERMOUTH and BITTERS — every time*:
- Emily says, “I’m so excited,” or some variation of it.
- Emily says, “We were lucky,” “I was lucky,” or some variation of it.
- Emily or Jeff says “Yes” in response to the other, and then adds nothing further.
Then, feel free to drunk email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Note: If you actually take a shot every time one of these things occurs, you will literally die.
For the record, we weren’t drunk when Jeff (popped collar and all) very unsuccessfully tried to re-record a few of his questions with Engineer Stu. It took three full minutes of this ridiculousness to finally nail the magical line: “And how long were you there?”
