Burgers are great anytime, In N Out follows this motto to a tee.

Some people say, it started with Genghis Khan, others believe the town of Hamburg played a significant role in building our hefty hot plate. Whatever you believe in, this hands-on dish brings together people from all walks of life, all while being wrapped up in paper and ready to eat. While this episode was meant to be burger session, things get a lil ‘Roasty’ for Ryan and the Gang as the comments become

Sometimes it all starts with a childhood favorite dish...

Favorite childhood foods, that’s where our infatuation began.  You have seen how many people attend food festivals, the endless lines at new eateries, and the countless accounts dedicated to food on Instagram.  The TRP team decided to explore our deep relationship with food.  We are calling this series InFatChewAsian (Ryan cleverly came up with the name, which he reminds us every time =P).  Ryan, aka The Break Dancing Bourdain, will be hosting the entire series as Andrey and John (sous chef 1 & sous chef 2 respectively) help serve up a podcast entree dedicated to food for your listening palate.  In Appetizer 1 (episode 1 of the mini-series), we will be talking about our favorite childhood food.

Men and women have sex (Yaaaass, please!!).  Men and Men have sex (Is that a banana in your pocket or are you happy to see me?).  Women and Women have sex (Meeoow).  The greatest part of being human is to have SEX, especially if you are in a loving and committed relationship.  Well, it occasionally occurs when you are not in love and/or committed as well.  However, is there a time of day that you prefer to have sex?  Most of the time the TRP Team agree on things, but it seems we differ in when we like to bump uglies.  Therefore, this episode is the great 2017 Sex Debate: Morning, Night, Anytime?  This topic “came” about from Debatable on Buzzfeed “Morning Sex Vs. Night Sex.”  You can watch it HERE.

The bar of standards, how far will you go to achieve your level of success?

In the previous discussion on Improve Yourself Before Dating (episode 11), Ryan mentioned The Bar of Standards; not the bar at The Standard Hotel.  Ryan thought this would be a great episode because everyone has this “bar” in reference to our partners and potential partners.  Meaning that everyone has their own criteria when choosing a partner.  Lets find out and get to the top (or bottom) of this.

The bar of standardS Outline

  • How do you define “The Bar of Standards?”
    • Are there differences of this Bar between Men and Women?
  • Are there levels to your Bar of Standards or just one baseline?
    • If so, when do you feel the need to adjust?
  • With all the topics we’ve covered so far this season, which ones create the biggest impact to setting this bar? Is it any of the following:
    • Communication Differences (Episode 7)
    • Cultural Barriers (Episode 3)
    • Deal Breakers (Episode 5)

Improve yourself before dating, do people follow said advice?

Improving Yourself Before Dating, a cliche’ idea one of audience members suggested mentioned we should do an episode based around this central idea.  This is a great topic choice because a majority of us learn something about ourselves in every relationship; whether successful or not.  Special thanks to BooBoo for filling out our survey and making this awesome topic choice for today.  We hope to answer all of your questions!!

We dive into dating alpha women.  Ryan and I had a brief conversation about potential collaborations.  He mentioned a trio of woman that had a podcast–ABG Podcast, which is a trio of women.  At first I thought ABG was short for Asian Baby Girls (which made me less interested), but it was Asian Boss Girls instead (which drew me back in).  I thought about it and contrasted how much different women TODAY are compared to women 40 years ago.  Today there are a lot more opportunities for women than before.  Women today are much more highly educated, hold more powerful positions in business, they are in all industries that were previously dominated by men, have a lot of expendable income, and they just have the power of freedom to do whatever they want.  Lets go!!
