New York Times Bestselling author Augusten Burroughs has written several deeply personal memoirs including "Running with Scissors," "Dry," and his newest "Lust & Wonder." From his messed up childhood, to alcohol addiction, to his obsession with infomercials, there's one thing we still don't know about Augusten: What would his last meal be?

On this episode of YLM, Rachel also talks with the extraordinarily delightful "Queen of the Cooking Infomercial" Cathy Mitchell, and gets stuck between two warring sides over the hotly-debated origins of Brunswick Stew: a traditional dish in the American South created in either Brunswick, Georgia or Brunswick County, Virginia. (Depends on who you ask... and DON'T ask the wrong person!)

Thanks to stewmaster John Clarey from Brunswick County, VA, and Bryan Thompson, former mayor of Brunswick, GA.
