Jonathan Gold on L.A. Food, Anonymity, and Thousand-Year Eggs (Rebroadcast)
Getting 30 minutes in a room with L.A. restaurant critic and Pulitzer-winning food writer Jonathan Gold is a little like feeding the man himself a single taco. We do it anyway. Listen as we discuss City of Gold—the new documentary featuring him—plus the role of a critic, the insignificance of anonymity, and the great mosaic that is L.A. food. This episode was originally released on March 24, 2016.

Great interviews, thought provoking
I've really enjoyed this podcast. Lots of stories and the interviews have been interesting. A good one to start with is Man vs. Meatloaf. The interviews are the strongest in my opinion - just a nice conversation and Food52 really has an appreciation for food and cooking that comes through in those interviews. I don't live in NYC and am not really a foodie so everything on the podcast sounds a bit new and interesting to me. Good way to keep in touch with what food writing is like today.

Too pretentious, too whispery
After listening to a few episodes I found the content lacking maturity and experience, yet full of NYC pretension. The vocal style of the host not only sounds like a child (high pitched, quiet and vocal fry), but seriously lacks vocal projection.
