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!

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!
