Podcast 002: Accidental Face-Punching Looks Best Underneath a Strobe Light

A wise prophet named Matthew McConaughey once imparted the following meditation on growth from the inside of midsize luxury vehicle:

“Sometimes you gotta go back to actually move forward.” 

To this I say,

Alright, alright, alright—Bring on the Neopets, Matty.”

This second episode of The Prep Station, my segue podcast into an upcoming food-centric interview podcast series, highlights some mind-blowing brain nuggets and a gr8 fact about cheese from the introduction to "Marcella Hazan’s Essentials of Italian Cooking". My fireside chat also provides you with what would be the introduction chapter to my own cook book through the art of a good old Xanga personality survey.

So come one, come all to contemplate taylor ham from the comfort of my bed with my faithful body pillow companion. Examine my growth from the time in seventh grade when I watched, horrified, as a white girl beat the shit out of another white girl, through to an instance in college when I accidentally punched a girl in the face at a fall formal.

Now who said that cooking has to be so serious all the time? Definitely not McConaughey—he’s too stoned to care.

Finally—Sorry not sorry about my C-rated mic. I will be getting a real one shortly.

Just tuning in? Catch up on the first episode of The Prep Station here, and try making this delicious packet of foolproof fish while you’re at it. Come back again next week to hang out and talk about more food.
