Every week we talk music with a chef or food with a musician. Hosted by Zach Brooks from Midtown Lunch and produced by Chuck P. More at http://www.foodisthenewrock.com
Outside Lands w/ Chef Stuart Brioza
Ep. 200 - It's only fitting that our 200th episode is at Outside Lands, one of the best music and food tests in the country. We caught up with Chef Stuart Brioza, who runs the acclaimed SF restaurant State Bird Provisions along with his wife Nicole Krasinksi, to chat about music behind the Gastro Magic stage.
Dan the Automator
Ep. 199 - This week's guest is artist and Hip Hop producer extraordinaire, Dan the Automator (Deltron 3030, Gorillaz, Handsome Boy Modeling School). He's not only worked with a ton of artists over the years, but he's befriended a bunch of chefs- including David Chang, who appears on the latest Deltron 3030 album. We met up with him at a coffee shop in SF just before Outside Lands to talk all about that, plus he tells us about the time he introduced Michael Stipe to Momofuku.
Ep. 198 - Comedian Jimmy Pardo, host of the Never Not Funny podcast, is this week's podcast guest... our very first for the Headgum Podcast Network (our new home!) Zach unlocks all of Jimmy's food issues, before they bond over their shared love of Chicago and Styx.
Ep. 197 - Singer/Songwriter (and Nickel Creek fiddler!) Sara Watkins is this week's podcast guest. We talk to her about licorice, what the food is like at Prairie Home Companion, and whether or not shrimp belongs in jello- a topic brought up due to the crazy food enhanced video for "Move Me", the first single off her new album.
Ep. 196 - Comedian/musician/internet celebrity Ali Spagnola is this week's podcast guest. We talk about what it's like to eat five dozen oysters in one sitting, buffet strategies, Pittsburgh sandwiches, and how she stays incredibly ripped.
Ep. 195 - Country music star Jason Aldean's drummer Rich Redmond is this week's guest. He's not just a drummer, but an actor, author and motivational speaker who does drummer seminars called Crash Courses (which you can learn about at www.richredmond.com). He also likes eating, and we talk to him about what it's like finding food on tour and in Nashville- where he spends most of his time.
Finally found a food podcast worth my time
The Henry Rollins episode brought me to this show. Fascinating concept, truly enjoyed listening to it. Unfortunate that they are no longer putting out episodes as of 2018
I want to love this but it is boring
Please. Go listen to The Sporkful or Dinner Party Download to hear what a good podcast sounds like. This is painful to listen to.
Currently addicted to this. If I could craft my ideal podcast, it would be this one. Food and music are big interests of mine.
Keep it up, Zach Brooks! You're the man!
