  • Food, Traditions, and Turkey Day: Old and New
    Last year, many families across the U.S. chose to stay home and go without their Thanksgiving and other holiday traditions to limit the spread of coronavirus. But for some, a minimal holiday season brought new traditions and menus, such as hosting a 'Friendsgiving' or celebrating solo. What can you do to make the holiday season extra special this year – both on and off the table? And what are some easy, but delicious recipes for those who may be hosting for the first time? Our panel of cooking and hosting experts answer those questions and more.Want to support 1A? Give to your local public radio station and subscribe to this podcast. Have questions?

  • Why Guilty Pleasures Shouldn't Make Us Feel Guilty
    In July 2019, Rax King published an essay about Food Network Star Guy Fieri. The so-called mayor of Flavortown is known for his bleached hair, bowling shirts, and rhyming exclamations ("so much salami, call my mommy").King wrote about how Fieri's unadulterated tackiness was the perfect balm to help her move on from her ex-husband — a preppy, uptight, anti-Guy kind of guy.That essay went viral. King's followed it with her new book, a collection of essays that extol the benefits of what the subtitle calls "the worst culture we have to offer." These supposedly include things like "The Jersey Shore," The Cheesecake Factory, and the band Creed. King argues that guilty pleasures shouldn't make us feel guilty at all, but are where we find the most joy. They help us connect with each other, without surroundings that demand we play it cool.We talk about King's book and what guilty pleasures are all about. Want to support 1A?
