The Everything Bagel Controversy a.k.a Great Minds

Who created the Everything Bagel, and why does anyone care? I recently came across an old New Yorker talking about how a Long Island businessman named David Gussin invented the Everything Bagel. Upon publication, there was an uproar, and several people came out to dispute David’s claim. I reached out to Gussin and the people who poopooed his assertion, and much to my surprise, these wildly successful people agreed to speak with me about bagels and life. This episode features Seth Godin, Brandan Steiner, Christopher Pugliese, and David Gussin.
