Oh, and did I also say ‘Listen,’ in the title of this post? Well, in that case, you have to check out Chef Richard Blais’s fun and informative podcast “Starving for Attention.” Why interesting and informative? Just listen to some of the titles from his past shows: “The Devil Wears an Apron with Gail Simmons,” “Du or Donut, There Is No Try with Wylie Dufresne, “Off the Court with Dale Talde,” “The Taste of Competition with Michael Voltaggio,” and my personal title favorite “Fermented Whale Anus and the Birth of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.” Looks like something for everybody with this podcast.
