We recorded two episodes this week, but only one will ever air. The reason? Tune in to find out. The thumbnail is a big hint.
This week Dick tries to argue that hunger is a bigger problem than gourmet dog food, and misses the irony of a society that places higher value on feeding their dogs gourmet food than feeding starving people.

Stop Hunger Now: Dick’s impartial source
NY Times: Boeuf Bourguignon Again? Pet Foods Go Gourmet
NY Times: For the Dogs’ Has a Whole New Meaning
Science Daily: Dog food goes gourmet: Nine emerging trends in pet food
