Beginning with a song about lice, Gareth K Vile offers a food and drink episode bereft of food and drink recommendations for the duration of your visit to Edinburgh. First up on the pod we talk to Daniella Isaacs of Hear Me Raw and discover why eating healthily isn't necessarily a good thing and how ghost writing a fitspiration book is a very bad idea. Composer and producer Matthew Whiteside is accosted to share his Fringe experiences so far and what he plans to see. And finally, Vile meets a man who has been eaten by a lion, as performance artist Mamoru Iriguchi comes to the studio to discuss Eaten.
Music in today's episode comes from Ami and Tami, a musical reimagining of Hansel and Gretel.
