What’s Different About Getting a Food Job Today?

September 13, 2016

Our third episode of Burnt Toast is one you’ve listened to most: It’s called Food Didn’t Mean Anything to Me Then, and it was a roundtable with Amanda Hesser, our co-founder, and the co-founder of Lucky Peach, Peter Meehan, about first food jobs and advice for future food writers. (Hot tip: Amanda attended bartending school—maybe you should too?)

So, what’s changed? What’s different about breaking into food media now than it was over a year and a half ago—and what does our industry need now more than ever?

The latest episode answers these questions. And, spoiler: You don’t need to go to bartending school.
