1/2: America's Best Burgers

What makes THE perfect burger? 

Every year we salivate over Kevin Alexander's 33 Best Burgers In America list, and in this episode Olly joins Kevin to sample two of the best burgers in California: the Americana at Causewell's and the Best Damn Cheeseburger at 4505 Burgers & BBQ

Along the way, he learns how shredded lettuce, a careful choice of condiments and a fatwa on side orders can help you achieve the ultimate burger experience.


Also in this episode, Ollie Peart considers the growing fad for beard transplants in The Zeitgeist. He also unpicks the hype around the release of Apple's new TV thingy, and reveals 'the science' behind why we're attracted to fireworks. If you've spotted a trend you'd like Ollie to discuss in a future episode, why not tweet him @ollieep.

And, in our sex solutions segment we are apparently permanently calling The Fox Hole, Alix Fox advises a listener who's lost that loving feeling. Bespoke condoms might be the answer, apparently. If you have a question of sex for Alix, you can submit it here - and you can choose to remain anonymous if you like.
