Turkey for Thanksgiving? How about a Seattle Dog instead?

What is the origin of Seattle Dog?

Mara Dillinger stood at a hot dog cart in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood, eating her fourth hot dog of the night.

“I asked KUOW where'd the Seattle dog come from,” Dillinger said. “Now they’re forcing me to eat all the Seattle dogs in Seattle.”

On this episode of SoundQs, we will bite into the history and origin of the Seattle Dog, a hot dog with grilled onions and cream cheese.
