    Ibram X. Kendi – Author of Four Hundred Souls and How To Be An Antiracist
     
    Dr. Ibram X. Kendi is a leading advocate for antiracism in America. His book How To Be An Antiracist flew off the shelves as the Black Lives Matter movement had an impassioned resurgence in 2020. He is using his voice to put an end to racial injustice, and people are listening. Dr. Kendi has a National Book Award, and three #1 New York Times Bestsellers. He was recently named one of TIME Magazine's 100 Most Influential People. He has done this all before even turning 40. His newest book, Four Hundred Souls, was co-edited by Dr. Keisha Blain. It details 400 years of African-Americans in a way no book has done before. Today we speak about activism, self-reflection, and antiracism.

    Scott Goldshine – Zabar's
     
    Location: Katz's Delicatessen in New York City
     
    Scott Goldshine has been working the cash register at Zabar's for nearly 40 years. Mind you - his title and job description has changed many times over and he now runs the store, but one thing he's learned is that he's always expected at the register if someone is waiting. For those of you who aren't familiar, Zabar's is one of the original specialty grocery stores in NYC, the ultimate destination if you are a foodie, and one of only a few of the original family owned grocery stores that is still thriving. They are exceptional and a true testament to longevity in the brick and mortar space. Today we explore the history of this iconic food spot through the eyes of Scott Goldshine while eating at his favorite restaurant, Katz's Deli.

    At 29 years old, this young tech dynamo has done something thousands of others twice her age have tried and failed. Her website, TheMuse.com, helps people find the perfect job.

In this episode of To Dine For, we go with her to her favorite restaurant, Izakaya NoMad, in the heart of Manhattan. Izakaya is a Japanese gastro-pub known for its delicious grilled meats, fresh sushi and a closing time of 2am.

I-Fly SWA ,

I'm hooked after the first episode!

I'd never heard of To Dine For but I'm now a new fan! I listened to the first episode with a slight bias because I know the guest, Suzanne Muchin. The host probed questions that received answers, and Suzanne gave honest, deep revelations that were thought provoking. Truly enjoyed the camaraderie between the two women and will be checking out Milt's BBQ For The Perplexed!
