Seafood Fight, Traditional Medicine and L'Arrange Rhum
This week, we begin (1:07) with a debate over our favorite types of seafood, a conversation which turns rather philosophical in the end.
Then (12:45), we discuss traditional Vietnamese medicine, which is quite different from the more famous traditional Chinese medicine. Are various aspects of it hokum, or scientifically legitimate?
Our interview guests (25:14) are Jérémy Marcillaud and Nicolas Plesse of L'Arrange Rhum. We chatted about their decision to begin making hand-distilled rum in Saigon, and where they hope to take their craft in the future.

As always, we end with Banh Mi Banter (37:44).
We're off next week, but will return to your feed on the 27th.Read more »
