  1. I subscribed to your podcase today and was very excited to turn it on as soon as I got into your car. As a suburban foodie, I started off with your review of Figo. Just wanted to say that you are absolutely closed minded and clearly know nothing about suburban living. I used to be a city dweller – and guess what, whoopdie frickin do. Yeah, the city has better restaurant choices, but why act like the suburbs have proverbial cooties? That is just classless and alientating to your suburban listeners. No matter, I am a listener no more. Besides, your review was really not that awe inspiring anyway. It was clear from listening that I know far more about food than the two of you combined.
