Rhik Samadder is an actor and columnist for the Guardian, where his column Wellness or Hellness? reviews kitchen gadgets and life hacks. On the podcast, he talks to Lara and Olivia about his mother's adventurous dinner table, his teenage battles with anorexia, and the worst kitchen gadgets he ever reviewed (including a mug which had a biscuit compartment).

Rhik tells Lara and Olivia that he grew up on a diet of frozen pancakes. For a make-from-scratch alternative, here's a recipe for buttermilk blueberry pancakes from Olivia's Vintage Chef column for Spectator Life.
