A podcast about race, food, and racist food. Join Kelly Nusz and Darryl Goodner in discussing the wild and ridiculous racist tropes in the food you know, and probably love. While also dismantling those tropes and creating something new.
Pouring Over the History of Coffee
How do you take your coffee? Cream? Sugar? Or do you drink it Black? As the world's second most traded commodity (next to oil) it's hard to have your morning fix without coming to terms with the origins of your favorite drink. It'll probably come as no surprise that coffee as a long history of slavery. We discuss our own relationship with coffee as we tell of its origins and early history.
24. Sunday Supper
Darryl and Kelly sit down to finish their conversation on fried chicken and share a meal of Popeyes. We finish our history on fried chicken and discuss some regionally black-owned restaurant chains. Lots of laughing and sidebars as we try to move through these final days of winter.
23. Tastes Like Chicken & Sadness
We are back after an unplanned and unexpected break. We talk about what kept us away for so long, eat chicken, and talk about chicken. And we're keeping it broad and loose for this episode, only going over a few facts and cultural history regarding the bird we love to eat - chicken!

22. Native American Heritage Month with Nicole Robey
We are celebrating Native American Heritage Month with our new best friend, Nicole Robey. Join us as we chat with Nicole about growing up Winnebago, what it means to be a "white-presenting" Native, and the work she does today as part of the Indigenous Affinity Group at Amazon as well as doing ramen and fry bread pop-ups with her husband. We enjoy some fry bread while discussing its delicious yet divisive history within Native culture. Follow Nicole on Instagram @bigvoice_media and www.renshokuramen.com for her and her husband's ramen.
21. BIG CANDY
What do Peanut Butter Bars, Circus Peanuts, and Bit-O-Honey all have in common? Well, they're gross, and WE ate them. In this episode, we lay the artificially flavored foundation for a forthcoming episode on sugar, share ghost stories, and acknowledge everything we've accomplished in our first year of podcasting.
