When times get tough, when weather is cold, when stuff gets uncertain…we all want comfort, or more exactly Comfort Food. The incredibly funny and always-comforting Melissa Peterman, star of shows like “Reba” and “Baby Daddy”, joins us to talk Tater-Tot hot-dish, throwing herself at Bono while on a trip to Ireland, and Phelps’ deep need for gas-station pastry when he’s feeling low. We explore the personal and political implications of comfort food with Karen Attiah of the Washington Post and Strauss breaks out his ultimate pick-me-up porcini mushroom matzoh-ball soup.  Pull up a glass and a Brandy Old Fashioned and some melty Mac-and-Cheese or ramen or gumbo, saag-dal, shepherds pie, cheesecake, peas and rice or poutine — it’s time to get comfortable.

Guests: Melissa Peterman (@FollowTheBlonde), Karen Attiah (@KarenAttiah)
