Tim Chantarangsu & Charlamagne Tha God Try Fertilized Duck Egg || Acquired Taste

On this week’s episode of “Acquired Taste,” Tim Chantarangsu and special guest Charlamagne Tha God head to Filipino restaurant Jeepney to take on one of the most intimidating foods either of them have ever tried. It’s called balut, and it’s essentially a fertilized duck egg that you eat right out of the egg shell. It might sound unusual to the American palate, but this Filipino street food is a widely beloved staple in the culture. Watch as acclaimed Filipino chef Nicole Ponseca guides them on this culinary journey to the Philippines and find out what Tim and Charlamagne think about this unique delicacy.

Tim Chantarangsu (nee DeLaGhetto, 1.5M Instagram followers) is no stranger to exotic food. He has a theory — if he eats the parts of animals most people don’t, it will make him more powerful. In this Thrillist show, Tim interviews a squeamish guest as they try dishes most people avoid at all costs and power up. Tim carefully pairs each dish to his guest: crickets because they feed them to their pet snake, or chicken feet because of all the times they chickened out on crazy adventures. From live octopus at Flushing’s Sik Gaek to silkworm at LA’s Jitlada, Tim will deliver an interview rarer than the food that’s crawling on the table. Together, they learn about how the dish came about, why it’s culturally important, and try it for themselves.

Lasagna Pie: Pizza or Lasagna? || Really Dough?

Scott can’t let his road trip with Mark end on a sour note, so he thought the only way to restore the good faith in their friendship was to keep the road trip going. But driving up to Maine while Mark was sleeping was definitely extreme, even for Scott. Once Mark cools down and gives kudos to Scott for making such a risky move, the two head to Slab Sicilian Street Food in Portland to try their meat lasagna pie, which is lasagna built in to a Chicago-style pizza crust with crumbled meatballs, four cheeses, and layered pasta. Scott’s been eyeing this pizza for years and he can’t wait to see Mark’s reaction. Will Mark be convinced that the meat lasagna pie is pizza? Will Scott finally take Mark back to Brooklyn now? What makes a pizza, a pizza? Lucali owner and old-school Brooklyn pizzaiolo Mark Iacono has a strict pizza formula: sauce, cheese, and dough. That’s it. But renowned pizza enthusiast Scott Wiener believes that the beauty of the slice comes from its creative customizability; even if it’s topped with cheeseburgers or constructed with paella. Scott travels all over America to spotlight the country’s most unique pies and make a case for whether these new customizations can, in fact, still be considered a pizza. This time, he’s taking Mark along for the ride on an East Coast road trip to try the craziest concoctions claiming to be pizza... but are they really dough?

Comedian and Desus & Mero Writer Josh Gondelman Takes Shots, Talks Working for John Oliver || SYS

In this episode of "Shoot Your Shot,” host and (fake) bartender Wil Fulton welcomes the nicest guy in comedy, Josh Gondelman. Over a few rounds of speciality “Gond with the Wind” shots, the writer, comedian, and author talks being a “Mass-hole,” his Dunkin’ Donuts obsession, Desus & Mero, and trying -- and failing -- to do drugs. Come for the buzzed banter, stay to see Josh beg Dunkin’ to make him their spokesperson. This is Shoot Your Shot. The best way to get to know someone is over a few rounds, right? In "Shoot Your Shot," Thrillist's new trivia/interview show, host and (fake) bartender Wil Fulton invites special guests to his (fake) bar to rip some shots, answer some questions, and have a lot of fun. Hopefully by the end, we all get to know our favorite celebrities a little bit better (and we'll definitely find out if they can hold their liquor). Expect a lot of twists, laughs, cocktail recipes… and of course, gratuitous shot-taking. Cheers, and remember to tip your bartenders!
