What you may not know is that Adam spent a significant amount of time in New Haven, Connecticut. That's right, Richman is a Yale Graduate. Adam joined us on the Friday (2/23/24) edition of the I-95 Morning Show and we had to ask him about his New Haven pizza loyalty. This is what he had to say.

Dave: Adam we have to ask you since you are such an expert on the New Haven area, from the Big-3 of the pizzas, what is your choice?


Adam: "Modern!"

Adam went on to tell a story about bringing his family to eat at Modern.

He even ended the discussion with a Modern shout-out.

The reason Adam came on our show is to promote Season 5 of "The Food That Built America" which premiered on Sunday, February 25th on the History Channel.

Season five of The HISTORY Channel’s popular nonfiction series “The Food That Built America” returns on Sunday, February 25 at 9PM ET/PT and will satisfy viewer’s appetites with all-new origin stories about America’s most iconic food empires and the pioneers who created them.

Some of Danbury + Brookfield's Best Churro Spots

A churro is a fried dough dessert found in Spanish and Portuguese cuisine. When covered in cinnamon and dipped in Dulce De Leche, it's one of my favorites. The question with anything worth having is, how far do I have to go to get it? If you live in Danbury or Brookfield, you are not going far at all. And, I'd put our churros in Danbury + Brookfield's up against any churro you can get anywhere. These are some of Danbury + Brookfield's Best Churro Spots.
