Roughly Speaking podcast: In praise of the Greek-American gyro (episode 166)

In this podcast: 

3:29: Beer aficionado Barry Hansen, Mid-Atlantic regional manager for City Brew Tours, talks about his tours of the craft breweries that have taken root in Baltimore.


7:53: Coming attractions: Film critics Linda DeLibero and Christopher Llewellyn Reed have some notes to share about films to be looking for this fall.

12:32: It's one of the most delicious and comforting dishes in the world, and while there are plenty of Greek-American restaurants and carry-outs that sell them, today we discuss the do-it-yourself gyro. (Yes, you can make one at home.) John Shields from Gertrude's Restaurant, where they've had gyros on the lunch menu, compares notes with Dan, and provides a recipe for all-important tzatziki sauce. For additional information, check out this DIY video from Alton Brown on the Food Network. And if you like the Gyro parody song by So Tiri that accompanies today's episode, here's the YouTube video.
