Jordan Morris and Danielle Radford (Bubble) are here to help weigh in on Snack Chat featuring Jeff's surprisingly gourmet homemade Cheez-Its (recipe below). And Jordan has some questions about everyone's drug use which ushers in too many confessions. The summer of toodles is underway but Jordan isn't so sure he's on board. Plus we talk about secret parrothead concerts and the lifestyle in general, semantics, the Bodega Boys, Sweet Valley High, Daniel's missing Starbucks wife and so much more. We also do a round of iTunes Comment of the Week and Just Me Or Everyone.

Jeff's Homemade Cheez-Its recipe:
8 ounces extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tsp kosher salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp mustard powder
1 tsp garlic powder
2 to 3 tbsp ice water
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a bread machine on dough setting, mix the cheese, butter, and salt on low speed until combined.
Combine the flour, mustard and garlic powder. Add to the mix on low until pebbly.
Slowly add 2 tablespoons of cold water and mix as the dough forms a ball. If needed, add the additional tablespoon of water a little at a time until the dough forms.
Pat the dough into a disk, wrap with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Divide the dough into two pieces and roll each into a very thin 10×12-inch rectangle (the dough should be no more than ⅛-inch high).
Using a fluted pastry wheel or a pizza cutter, cut the rectangles into 1-inch squares, then transfer them to the baking sheets.
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until puffed and browning at the edges.
Immediately move the crackers to wire racks to cool completely, then store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
