Sisyphus

I agree that a chefs life is much like Sisyphus', but on reflection so our all our lives. I would add the 'hook' is not that we do the same effort everyday but that some days the Stone is smaller, we can lift it, and other days we can throw it to the hill, and still others it is so heavy we need others to help us etc. variation and the drive for perfection, efficiency, creativeness etc make the climb attractive.

Great podcast, crazy business model

The podcast is quite well done and interesting and Preet does a fantastic job. The CAFE Insider business model does not work for me, especially when there are so many excellent podcasts available. I don’t mind listening to a few commercials but I do mind seeing a charge hitting my bank account every month

Awesome legal podcast

Informed and reasoned analysis of the news and legal topics. Helpful to me as an attorney, and accessible to anyone. Although Preet leans left, I love that he points out when there is a legitimate point by the other side. He really helps me to process everything that is going on.
