Just Gravy 5: Polio, Pepperoni, and Pizza Rat
Ready to listen to the goofiest re-telling of the history of polio and talk about pizza? How do those things even belong together? Listen to this bonus episode of a sleepy Darryl and a tired Kelly try to make sense of the racist science and policies that went along with the U.S. polio epidemic. We also talk about the delicious pizza Darryl made with bacon and pepperoni from Red Hog. Special guests include Spinelli the dog, and a mouse stalking Darryl's kitchen.
