Talkin’ Taco Time: TTNW Confidential

We’re channeling the late Anthony Bourdain to go inside a Taco Time Northwest franchisee kitchen circa early 2000s with local comedian Casey McLain, whose experience reminds Chris of his own at the same time. Plus updated reviews of the Taco Burger 2.0 and we create a podcast spin-off within our Peltoncast spin-off. Note that this was recorded before we learned that TTNW is now offering green salsa. Stay tuned for a review in the future.
