Over the next few months, we will be learning about food and food practice through interviews with some of my favorite colleagues and collaborators. We will delve deep into favorite foods, childhood memories, and contemporary food practices, all while thinking critically about how America monetizes, commodifies, and colonizes food and the people that make it. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry, and we’ll get hungry! Tune in on August 16 to hear from comedian Christina Anthony, Aug 23 for writer Ricardo Gamboa, and Aug 30 for health and lifestyle coach Simi Botic.
