The Best Stuff We've Read This Week

Each week, Chuck and Josh read tons of articles. Here are the best of the bunch. Enjoy them with our compliments.

Food Trucks begat Diners; or, What's old is new again

Sometimes things come so clearly full circle that it's elegant. An excellent case in point and the only one I can think of right now is the current trend toward buying one's gourmet hotdogs and tacos from food trucks. It's worth pointing out that it's a trend in outlying cities like Atlanta, St. Louis. and San Francisco, though it's has been pretty much permanent and largely taken for granted that at any given moment on certain streets in New York, there will be a line of trucks capable of preparing and serving hot food like gyros and sausages in exchange for cash only.

Good day, folks. Today Josh and I, along with TechStuff's Chris Pollette and Jonathan Strickland, were interviewed by a girl named Emily for her high school newspaper -- The Arrowhead! It was truly excellent and she did a fine job of asking us some great questions about podcasting and our take on it. The whole experience took me back to my own days as a high school journalist. I had an anonymous column in The Raider Review, as well as being the sports reporter and photographer. These were some good times and it was nice to get such a warm memory out of today's experience.
