I recently found out that my dad used to eat white bread with sugar on it as an after-school snack and I just couldn't let that go. So we had to experiment with that.

But I also wanted to talk some about my book, and my BOOK TOUR which you can find out more about at http://www.hankgreen.com

And about PodCon2! The second PodCon, for people who love podcasts! Check that out at http://www.PodCon.com

Hank: Hello, dad.

Dad: Where'd you like me to sit?

Hank: You can sit right there. Good morning, John. We were having dinner the other night with this... our dad. And I found out about a habit of yours when you were... what how old?

Dad: It wasn't a habit. I could stop anytime I wanted to. It was after-school ritual when I was 8 or 9 or 10. You know, long day, on the school bus, come into the kitchen, get out some white bread, Wonder Bread, and put 2 or 3 teaspoons of sugar on the bread and then just eat it. Crunch-crunch.

Hank: That's been a long time since you've done that.

Dad: I've... pfff... well, yeah.

Hank: Do you think that it's gonna be familiar if we do this again?

Dad: Oh, I can feel the crunch right now. But I don't know that it's gonna be a good thing.

Hank: Well, I really wanna try it. We've got some classic white bread. This is pretty doughy gooey stuff. So make... make it for me, dad.

Dad: Other people do this, where you just like take the sugar and put it in your mouth. Listen kid, you do it cause you can.

Hank: No cause kids now have actual candy.

Dad: I don't know how I did this, I'm sure I didn't do ...like ... tap my fingers.

Hank: So that's one spoonful.

Dad: (laughs) I did it alone, ok? my mother wasn't there, my brothers weren't there.

Hank: Did you think you were getting away with something? 

Dad: Nah, it was a snack ! I don't remember drinking a lot of sodas and there- can of soda's like a third sugar.

Hank: it's soda bread- that's different. So you sort of balance the sugar on the bread - carefully. 

Dad: That's not nearly as thick as what I used to eat. 

Hank: Well- then- well! We've gotta be authentic! We should probably add more on then! Oh, wow that's a lot. You've gotta shake it so then it's (1:26)
