Food is the New Rock

Ep. 162 - Bob Marley's son Rohan stops by the podcast to tell us his entire life story, from Jamaica to Miami (where he went to the same high school as Zach) to playing football, then back to Jamaica- where he now owns a huge plot of land where coffee is grown.  He has since started Marley Coffee, which he also tells us all about.

Ep. 161 - This week's podcast guest is Michael Cimarusti, the chef of Connie & Ted's and Providence (which is widely considered the best restaurant in Los Angeles.) We talk to him about reggae (he did a reggae college radio show) and the Grateful Dead, plus argue about whether or not Miley Cyrus has ruined the Flaming Lips.  He tells us about the time John Paul Jones ate at Providence and about Dock to Dish, the new sustainable seafood CSA for restaurants he helped bring to the west coast.  WARNING: This podcast has some serious man on man bonding between Michael and our guest co-host Jeff Miller (L.A. editor of Thrillist).

Ep. 160 - From A Tribe Called Quest to Chef, Jarobi White returns to the podcast for a second time.  Since we talked to him last year he's started a new company (Eats, Rhymes, Life), was part of the Black Chef Series at BluJeen in Harlem, started a Tribe Taco Tuesday in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn, and was back in L.A. for Labor Day Weekend hosting a BBQ w/ Roy Choi at the Line Hotel in Koreatown.  We talk about all that and Star Wars.

Ep. 159 - On this week's podcast we talk to brothers Keith and Mike Jeffrey from the band Atlas Genius.  Both are avid vegans, so we talk a lot about that, plus Australian fair food, the greatest garlic dip in the entire universe, and the awesomeness of vegemite.  Plus the guys tell us how they got their very own limited edition Atlas Genius donut at DoRite Donuts in Chicago, IL (available until September 11th.)

Their new album Inatimate Objects, featuring the song "Molecules", is out now.
