I'm listening to your Cuban sandwich podcast. I'm not all the way through it, but I'm a little taken aback at your apology to your guests that West Coasters are "dumb" when it comes to things like not ordering lettuce and tomato on a Cuban. I'm a native Californian, and I have never seen anyone do this. Ever. To apologize to people for West Coasters some how not "getting" food perpetuates the notion that the East Coast has something up on the West food-wise. They do not. LA has one of the most diverse and best food cultures in the country.
It might be covered later in this podcast (I sure hope it is), but how about focusing on where to get a great Cuban sandwich in LA, or even talk about the differences between a Cuban sandwich, a Media Noche and a Torta Cubana? If these things are covered in the second half of the podcast, then I apologize in advance.
I don't know why this rubbed me the wrong way, but it did. Maybe it was morning traffic and no coffee. Just my $0.02.
