The Food52 Podcast: Episode 3!

April  9, 2015

Time to tune in to episode 3! (In case you missed our first two podcasts, listen to the first here, and the second here.) 

Today’s episode covers the topic of first food jobs—we chat with Lucky Peach co-founder Peter Meehan about how he got his start, how aspiring food writers might get theirs, and just how scrappy Amanda was before The New York Times.

so interesting/insightful, especially as someone who's looking to get into the food industry.

Fantastic! I'm so glad you guys are doing a podcast. The quality was great, and I can't wait for more.

I really enjoy your podcast but want to gently suggest to Amanda that she watches her use of "like". I'll bet she used it 150 times!
