While were great in the kitchen, were not really public figures. Members of the media can submit requests for interviews using the address below. If we dont get back to you pronto, its probably because were up to our armpits in waffle mix.


Steve Gill, a nationally-recognized talk show host broadcasting from Nashville, Tenn., added Obama Waffles to his morning diet on August 28. Thanks, Steve. We're glad you enjoy "Change you can taste." Thanks, even more, for having us on the air on September 5, 2008. Listen to the podcast here.

Anchor and Managing Editor of "Lou Dobbs Tonight" (CNN) Lou Dobbs and Bob had a quick "drive-by" conversation at the Value Voters Summit on 9/12/2008. He had a great comment you can read here.

Mark did a quick 5-minute interview with his friend Tony Beam on Christian Worldview Today heard on WLAC. Dr. Beam is a professor at North Greenville College and an avid Star Trek collector. Read his blog here. wrote about us today with a humbling comment: "the best political satire so far of this presidential election season."
