This important episode of the Smellcast features the history of Walter Snicker-Snicker and Jose Luis Alberto Manuel Santos: We find Jose in Daytona, Florida where his beloved Walter Snicker-Snicker is believed to be lost. As Jose begins his day and prepares to resume his long search, his mind drifts back to his early years with Walt when they were eking out a meager living with a hot dog cart in upstate New York.
As we listen in, we learn how one day, Jose became inspired to begin preparing their hot dogs in a new and different way, serving it in tortillas. And so begins their decades long emergence from hot dogs to burritos, eventually abandoning their outdoor food cart to invest in a real sit-down restaurant. Along the way, we learn exactly how Toppie and Aunt Tappie were integral to this pivotal time in their lives.
