Burnt Toast

Our eponymous episode, on why toast is the best thing since sliced bread. We look at the evolution of toaster-based breakfast items like toaster pastries (from Pop Tarts to Megpies) and Eggo Waffles, which Netflix series Stranger Things brought back into vogue via nostalgia. We'll touch on the history of the toaster and learn about Trenary Toast from the Upper Peninsula in Michigan, the cinnamon-ed treat that Yoopers have snacked on for almost 90 years!
