Comfort Measures

Comfort Measures is a podcast that takes a closer look at the media we consume and the food we eat when we are seeking comfort. Why do we take comfort in action movies or suspenseful books or scary television shows? What media connects us? How does food contribute to our comfort? So, get comfy and join Jessica Ammirati from Going to Tahiti Productions, as she delves into the sources of our comfort. Lord knows we all could use a little comfort right about now...

Episode 10 - In our February episode, we jump in to the 1987 Rob Reiner classic - THE PRINCESS BRIDE. So, in the spirit of Inigo Montoya:

My name is Jessica Ammirati.
You're seeking comfort.
Prepare to (re)watch!

Jessica's co-host this month is none other than retired English and American Studies and Dean of Studies, Theresa (aka Mom) Ammirati. The comfort food pairing is beef stew. Get yerself a bowl, grab some crusty bread to go with it, and settle in for a discussion of a princess, a pirate, a giant, a Spaniard, a six-fingered man, and some very large rodents.

As always, thank you to The Don't Tell Darlings for use of their songs "Never Saw Nothing" and "Till I Get Home" in the intro and outro (respectively) to the pod. For more of Camilla's music you can go to and
