Ep 574: Morgan Spurlock • Paul Brill

Sep 12, 2019

[9 mins. 55 secs.] In the 15 years since "Super Size Me", the fast-food industry has undergone a makeover. Today, chain restaurants tout food that's 'healthy,' 'organic,' and 'natural.' Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock explores this new reality with an approach even more immersive and subversive than that used for his first film: he sets out to open his own chicken franchise. We follow him every step of the way, from raising poultry and conjuring recipes to designing the brand and scouting a location. Spurlock brings his disarming humor to uncover the truths and lies behind this multibillion-dollar industry. Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock makes his first appearance on the podcast. He's joined by his film subjects, chicken farmers Jonathan and Zack Buttram. "Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!" is currently in theaters in New York City and Los Angeles and opening wider as of Friday, September 13th" as well becoming available on demand and streaming. New Yorkers may also visit Morgan's pop-up restaurant, Holy Chicken!, located at 18 W. 23rd Street in Manhattan where it will be in operation for the next couple of weeks.
