Enjoy… the JOY
The host and production of every episode I’ve played is so enjoyable. I asked myself “why am I enjoying this pod so much?”… The answer: JOY!!! I’m laughing out loud, smiling and learning. The pod is such a departure from Food 52s snobby, pretentious monolithic tone. I’m super happy I gave it a listen!!!!

this podcast is insightful, funny, heartwarming and refreshingly intentional. culture and life experiences are acknowledged and spoken with as much love and care as the food and music discussed in each episode. peter j. kim is a wonderful host and someone i wish i could sit down and chat with myself. + as a new yorker with an immigrant parent, my heart is full
