    This is one of Brett and Nick’s favorite episodes that, sadly, many listeners haven’t heard. So, while the WTS team takes some time off this week to rest up, please enjoy this encore presentation of “The Way It Is (Taste)”.

    This episode DOES contain new WTS Digs and Credits - there's some good stuff here.

    Taste. What’s good? What’s bad? People often come guns blazing with their opinions on things - whether it be music, movies, art, food, or drink. But where do these ideas come from and why are they so deeply ingrained?

    This week on Where There’s Smoke we talk taste. Producer Nick Jaworski joins Brett as co-host this week and shares a story involving Canada’s top selling recording artist, the United States Air Force... and soap.

    And after exploring many influences and interactions of taste, we talk to Dr. Robert Woody from the University of Nebraska. He expands on taste as it relates to fandom, and teaches us about “burging” and “corfing”.
