Distillations #156 – Hard to Stomach

My four-year-old son’s favorite new phrase – don’t yuck my yum – is a perfect description of this episode of Distillations, though there are few who would find body cheese truly tasteful. Reporter Lindsay Patterson visits South by South Swab – a SXSW event in which a biologist and smell researcher create personalized cheeses from strains of human bacteria. It’s literal toe cheese. (Gag.) Then, when your stomach settles, Jacqueline Boytim explains why the thought of body cheese can make you nauseous without having to taste the stuff.
