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!

Take up your fans, because it's...Bingate! In this episode of Gin and Cake, we chat about Season One, Episode Four (Desserts), of The Great British Baking Show, which saw the greatest controversy in the series' history. That's not saying much for people who are all nice and hug and make cake, but it's dramatic nonetheless.

So cue up Episode Four (or just listen along), grab a delicious beverage, and take to your fainting couches. It's Gin and Cake time!
