Episode 72: Hot Dogs

This week on A Taste of the Past, Linda explores the history of the hot dog with Bruce Kraig, Ph.D, author of Hot Dog, A Global History. Bruce has traveled the world tasting hot dogs and shares some very interesting variations including Korean batter-dipped dogs. Learn how the frankfurter found its way into American culture, where it got its silly name from and how it helped define our on-the-go meal philosophy in this country.
