Hey. This is Paul Kondo. This is the Podcast Gumbo podcast and I’ve got a rhetorical question for ya.

Are you like me and find those things we call National Days, like Cheeseball Day or worse, Moldy Cheese Day, amusing? Yeah, me too. So each week, I’ll have one of my podcast friends challenge me to find an episode related to one of those days and I’ll be releasing it on the actual day it occurs. 

So, let’s get to it. What is today’s National Day?

Hi, my name is Zach Davis and I would like to know about the National Fluffernutter Day. The reason I want to know more about this is because fluffernutter was invented in my hometown of Somerville, Massachusetts. And I’d like to know more about this wonderful product that was invented right where I live. 

I have to admit Zach, this is one of those days that reminds me there is a national day for everything. Maybe in the future, there will be a National Podcast Gumbo Day.

October 8th is National Fluffernutter Day. For those people who live on Mars, a fluffernutter is a marshmallow creme and peanut butter sandwich. In truth, I probably haven’t had one since college but as I type this, I have a strong urge to buy some Fluff the next time I’m at the supermarket.

My first recommendation is from the Stories & Stuff podcast and it’s a short episode called What the Fluff? which includes the What the Fluff festival that takes place in, where else, Union Square in Somerville, Massachusetts. At the festival, you’ll get to try all different fluff combinations. You’ll also get a tip about trying to fly on a plane with fluffernutter. 

So today, post your delicious fluffernutter sandwich pictures on social media using the Fluffernutter Day hashtag. 

Today’s guest is Zach Davis. Zach hosts the Ministry of Ideas podcast, a small show about the big ideas that shape our world. 

In Season 2, there’s an episode called Shifting Blame that starts off with the tragic story of college basketball great, Len Bias, who died shortly after being drafted into the NBA due to a cocaine overdose. Bias’ death brought about laws to punish people that are responsible for drug-related deaths. It then segues into the American criminal system. 

For our third recommendation, Zach recommends The Constant podcast. Zach says, and I quote, “I’d like to recommend The Constant episode, The Foolkiller. It’s a five part series about the quest to build a submarine and one of the craziest mysteries you’ll ever hear about.” Unquote. 

For today’s Extra Hot Sauce, I just wanted to let you know that Zach has another podcast called Writ Large, which is a podcast about the books that changed the world. 

Also, even though I don’t have an episode for it, October 12th is National Gumbo Day. I won’t hold it against Zach for not picking the best national day of the year. 

As always, take a look at the show notes for links to all the podcasts mentioned in this episode as well as other life-altering information. To make it easy for you, there’s also a link to a podcast playlist that will contain all the episodes ever mentioned in this show. 

See you next week sometime for another round of recommendations.
