An Entertaining Journey Through Digestion

How much can you eat before your stomach bursts? Why doesn't the stomach digest itself? Can wine tasters really tell a $10 bottle from a $100 bottle? Why is crunchy food so appealing? Can constipation kill you? Did it kill Elvis? Mary Roach's new book, Gulp, takes you to a pet food taste-test lab, a fecal transplant, and into a live stomach to observe the fate of a meal. She joined us to share a few of the icky but fascinating stories.
