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!

May 31, 2017

Today on Gin and Cake, we launch ourselves into Season Two of The Great British Baking Show. In this cake-centric episode, we experiment with a new free discussion format (instead of the "live-watch" format we used in Season One), and manage to run into killer whales, a holy hand grenade, and a bit of the old timey wimey.

 

So, grab a delicious beverage, slap on the headphones, and savor a new season of baking goodness. It's Gin and Cake time!

It's the finals! Today on Gin and Cake, we breathlessly watch Season One, Episode Ten of The Great British Baking Show, in which we find out who will rise to take the coveted cake plate. We also wander by barnacle geese, ukuleles, King Arthur's grave, and stand-up comedy.

So cue up Episode Ten (or just listen along), make a pitcher of delicious beverages, and get to the edge of your earphones for the grand finale of Season One. It's Gin and Cake time!

For those who want to watch along, the Great British Baking Show is currently on Netflix, or you can purchase it on Amazon.
