Gin and Cake

Gin and Cake is a live-watch exploration of one of the most weirdly popular reality shows on television: The Great British Bake-Off or, as it's known to us here in the US, The Great British Baking Show. In it, generally polite people compete to bake cookies and cake while wandering around a tent on a bucolic English estate, all in pursuit of the most fabulous prize imaginable — a cake plate. Absurd? Yes! Which is probably why we, like so many millions of other people, love it. In this biweekly podcast, we will comment, question, wax rhapsodic, and speculate wildly about things we could probably know if only we weren’t too lazy to look them up on the Internet. There's also a bunch of baking trivia. And a few Star Trek references, because that's never wrong. And we’re going to do it all while sipping delicious adult beverages, and we hope you’ll join us in that, as well. So mix that drink and have a listen. It's Gin and Cake time!

Hello and welcome to Gin and Cake, our biweekly podcast about the cultural wonder that is The Great British Baking Show!

Dec 27, 2016

Gin and Cake is a live-watch exploration of one of the most weirdly popular reality shows on television: The Great British Bake-Off or, as it's known to us here in the US, The Great British Baking Show.

In this episode, join us as we do a live commentary of Season One, Episode One, of the Great British Baking Show as it was shown in the US on PBS. For those outside of the US, you'll know this as Season Five of the Great British Bake Off. We know, that's totally weird, right? Well, that's how it is. It's about cake, and that should make it all better.

So cue up the episode (or just listen along), mix that drink, and have a listen. It's Gin and Cake time!

For those of you who are going to watch along, we'll do a little countdown to let you know when to hit play. Note that we are starting right after the PBS logo (if you see one). That's about 5 seconds into the show if you bought the American version from Amazon or stole it from Youtube.
