Episode 8 – Publish Date: July 27, 2008 Listen

In this episode:

The mastermind behind the show that was a precursor to modern day reality TV, Robin Leach, is on the phone talking about Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Robin globe trotted for 14-years wowing audiences with the mind-boggling wealth and extravagances of the super rich and famous and he shares some great stories with CupCakes. Then it’s on to two utterly fabulous and quite unusual cookbook finds, “White Trash Cooking” and “Manifold Destiny”. The first cookbook features old-school/backwoods Southern dishes, some of them quite unusual, and the other cookbook gives instructions for dishes that can be prepared – get this – under the hood of your car! And everyone knows that James Bond was always armed with the coolest of gadgets. There are many techno-wiz type devices on the market these days and CFTT shares a few of them. What’s It Mean defines slang terms including one from George Carlin.

In this episode:
There’s an elite group of rock musicians and singers who are in this “club” so-to-speak called the 27 Club. Some notable members include Robert Johnson, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain. Episode 6 takes a look at who’s in the club and what it’s about. Who’d think you’d run into American baseball players in the Caymen Islands? What are they putting in those rum drinks!? You would not be seeing things from a “fuzzy” perspective as the players are part of the Chicago White Sox Training Academy. The Academy sponsors summer camps in Chicago and extends their coaching and instruction expertise to the youth and coaches of this Caribbean nation. CupCakes speaks to former pro and academy instructor, Justin Stone, about how island kids are doing at picking up the sport of baseball. Trivia fans, get set for a multiple-choice pop quiz, a Neanderthal sound bite and another installment of What’s It Mean.

What do Cary Grant, Freddie Mercury, Lauren Bacall, Pink, Ron Artest, Jr. and Elvis Costello all have in common? They’re among the movie, sports and music celebrities who made the switch, leaving behind their real names for far more glamorous sounding ones.
