Oh, you’re taking that very jokey segment way too seriously. There’s no reason for you to be familiar with all my work, but if you listen to the podcast and my segments on KCRW or see what I’m doing as LA Weekly’s food editor, you’ll notice that I firmly believe that L.A. has the best food culture in the country. You’ll have to take my word for it here
To your second point, I don’t want it to be a regional podcast, so I don’t push the “where to get it in LA” angle. It comes up organically on occasion, though.
