Content Warning Misophonia. We do eat on this episode of the podcast (while performing important scientific research). While we’ve made every effort to reduce noise, this may be difficult for those who suffer from Misophonia. The chompy part of the segment starts at 50:40.

is the odor of cabbage a British idiom? Reading Jodi Taylor’s Chronicles of St Mary’s the time travel pods smell like boiled cabbage regardless of how new or used they are. Is it something like an institutional smell there? now I’m wondering what ubiquitous smell in the US would be
Yes, it’s absolutely a stereotypical institutional smell here. Schools, council buildings, care homes etc. I suppose vegetables boiled in bulk end up smelling of cabbage!
