This is a rush transcript of Episode #458 of the Richard Mullen Show. Today’s Guests were Dalia Winters and Todd Lang, co-authors of the book Save Me a Slice, The Guide to Pizza.
RICHARD: Peperoni…Mushrooms…Sausage…are what I want on my pizza. If there are two people in the world who know Pizza better than my guests, Dalia Winters and Todd Lang authors of a tasteful read: Save Me a Slice, The Guide to Pizza, then point them out. I hope to learn everything I can about pizza in about 8 minutes. Later we’ll be prank calling pizza orders, but first let me ask: Thin or Thick crust, what should I have?
TODD: Always go with thin crust, you don’t need the extra dough to cloud the flavors.
RICHARD: Dalia, do you agree?
DALIA: I…I…I…really am sorry, but I need to say something.
RICHARD: That’s why you’re here.
DALIA: I’m sorry, but I just can’t go on any more. Todd, I hate to do this right now, but we can’t date any more and to be honest, I’ve been cheating on you, again.
RICHARD: Todd, it would appear Dalia has been cheating on you, again, and I am guessing by the fact that she is taking off her ear piece and is walking away, that she may be leaving you.
TODD: Dalia, what are you doing? Where are you going? Is this another sick joke?
RICHARD: Todd, I’m sorry but my producers are telling me that Dalia just told them that this is no joke, you just got dumped live on television, on the Richard Mullen Show to be precise. What kind of pizza goes with a broken heart?
RICHARD: Yes, Todd?
TODD: Oh, God, this can’t be happening. Not Today. I thought we had worked it out.
RICHARD: Worked what out?
TODD: She told me she had stopped seeing Chris six months ago. I..I…I don’t understand. (crying)
RICHARD: Todd, what do you suppose made her cheat? Does it have anything to do with Pizza?
TODD: (crying) No, I, don’t know. (crying)
RICHARD: Were book sales going well enough?
TODD: Well, Chris’s last report said sales were doing well.
RICHARD: Chris is?
TODD: Our Agent.
RICHARD: And your girlfriend’s new lover?
TODD: Old and new lover, apparently.
RICHARD: Well, once a cheater always a cheater, they always say.
TODD: I should have known, I suppose.
RICHARD: Well, at least you have pizza.
TODD: Yeah, I guess I’ll always have pizza.
RICHARD: Who needs love when you can have deep dish! Thank you for your honestly, Todd.
TODD: I think I need a drink.
RICHARD: You might just want an entire bottle. Todd Lang has been our guest along with his ex-girlfriend Dalia Winters. Both are co-authors of the book Save Me a Slice, The Guide to Pizza, which is #747 on Amazon’s best-selling non-fiction list. Oh, late word from one our producers, on her way out of the studio, Dalia also told the producer that Todd has a really small penis, not that this matters in the Pizza world, but I thought I would just pass it along.
