In honor of the most gluttonous holiday of the year, we're throwing back to our episode all about eating so much we die.

Gluttony might put our immortal soul in danger, but what about our physical bodies? We've all eaten so much we feel like we might explode, but can we eat enough in one sitting to kill us? That's the question we dig into this episode, exploring if we can push our tummies past their breaking points, how our bodies protect us from that grizzly fate and three gruesome stories of when it failed.
