The Pilot: Taco Bell Fries

In the summer of 2016, a grave evil came to this country. It was a creation of pure malevolence, designed to test our faith in human decency and the existence of a just and merciful God.

I am referring, of course, to the Whopperito.

Out of those dark days came the inspiration for this website: an oral history of the last days of the republic, an unceasing bacchanal of debauchery and madness wherein the sodium-besotted populace failed to notice Cyrus at the gates until it was too late. This, my friends, is Fast Food Babylon.

This week, as the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists nudged the Doomsday Clock ever closer to midnight, I sat down for our inaugural episode with my friends Sarah (a self-described Taco Bell expert) and Drea (a known expert on the McRib) to try out Taco Bell’s new fries and nacho fries. Watch and listen below as we chart the decline of the republic.



Since this is our inaugural episode, let us know what you think! Should we do a podcast or a video series? Should we give up and just do Whole30? Will our souls ever be clean again? Let us know in the comments below!
