Laura Shapiro

Episode description

I love this interview so damn much. Laura Shapiro, author most recently of WHAT SHE ATE: Six Remarkable Women & the Food That Tells Their Stories, and I talk cake, her career path, feminism, consciously—or unconsciously—ingested societal ideas around marriage, the history of cake mix, and the frankly horrendous diet culture. Oh, and Hitler. This is a doozy of an episode my friends. Please be aware that certain subjects discussed may be upsetting for some listeners.

Original music composed by Alejandro Hernandez.
