If you were a member last season, this may come as old news to you, so hang on while I get a little housekeeping out of the way.
See, we stumbled on these sauces from the REDACTED Company and while Tommy was busy talking about how they gave him anxiety, Pete discovered that this was not in fact a simple SauceAccident, it was just a single representative of a whole line of condiments that represent the whole of SauceTrocity suffered upon us, the consumers.
It became a running gag, albeit a dumb one, and we fell in love with it. The gag. Not the Sauces. The Sauces? How could we know if we would fall in love with them? We’d never tasted them. We sat on our podcast bouncy balls and made jokes at their expense, but never had the SaucePerience to back those jokes up.
So, in a member-only episode from last summer, we held a taste test of the sauces from REDACTED Company and their line of REDACTEDSauce condiments. Our experience is what you’ll be listening to this week.
But why a rebroadcast, you ask, especially of a subject and sound so disgusting? Because we need you to know what you’re getting when you become an official PanicPal and Certified Best Friend of the show. It’s this sort of hard culinary investigation that sets What’s That Smell? apart from all the other sometimes-funny podcasts about humans and their anxieties.
In closing, if you like it, if you’re intrigued by our brand of tasting, we encourage you to become a PanicPal and get your own bespoke podcast feed that includes episodes like this one which the public never hears. Until next year… when desperation rears it’s ugly, stupid head.
To everyone who has already joined the club, thank you for helping us keep the lights on and loving what we are able to do with this show. You’re the absolute best.
