The Stories That Defined 2019

December 13, 2019, 9:00 am • 41m

Ah, 2019. It was the year of the celery juice phenomenon, thirsty brands on Twitter, Game of Thrones food anachronisms, high profile restaurant divorces, and Impossible doing the, well... impossible. This year provided all sorts of fodder for our weekly stories segment, and to wrap it all up, we're dedicating an entire episode to the stories that defined 2019: the good, the bad, the ugly, and the downright ridiculous. We asked a bunch of our friends from the newsroom to join us in discussing their favorites, but just a quick disclaimer: we will NOT be discussing chicken sandwiches of any variety.
