About This Episode
What’s on the StarTalk Radio menu? Part 1 of Neil deGrasse Tyson’s interview with celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain. The bestselling author describes some of the most disgusting things he’s ever eaten on his adventures, from African bush meat to rotten, fermented shark, and how a bowl of noodles changed his life. He and Neil discuss the business of food, including a vivid description of “pink slime.” Anthony also gets personal about his self-destructive early years and what saved him. Between courses, comic co-host Eugene Mirman and Marion Nestle, Professor of Nutrition at NYU, dish out a heaping helping of dietary science, evolution, cultural relativism and physiology. This Sunday’s podcast is just the appetizer and entree. You’ll have to wait until Part 2 for dessert.
