About this Episode

Cereal is a podcast from this American life (sorry Sarah Koenig but cereal is more American than Serial so I'm stealing your elevator pitch). Cereal tells one story - a true story - over the first course of the day, breakfast.

Quite literally the Morning Star, cereal follows a hauntingly similar plot arch to that of Lucifer. From humble beginnings created during radical religious-based dietary movements of the latter half of the 1800s, cereal has fallen from a healthy alternative to the "evils of coffee" and overindulgence of morning sausage consumption to a primary sugar blasted processed grain barely considered food.

Join us as we try the worst junk cereals of 2018.
