Whether you call them franks, wieners, or red hots, hot dogs are as American as apple pie, but how did these little links become icons of American culture? World-renowned hot dog scholar Bruce Kraig investigates the history, people, décor, and venues that make up hot dog culture and what it says about our country. Did you know that Flint, MI has a distinctly different "dry" coney dog compared to Detroit's style? Erin sits down with Bruce to talk the history of hot dogs in all their glory!
