The authenticity of Authenticity: Chinese food, white people & petting zoos with the chinatown collective
This week the Robicelli Argument Clinic manages to stay on topic, and oh what a topic it is! We invite Leandro Lagera and Steph Hsu of The Charm City Night Market & Chinatown Collective to the show to discuss white people's relationship with "authentic" Asian foods. It's funny! It's informative! It's not super racist! Everyone learns a lot and has a damn good time, and we sure hope that you will, too.
The next Charm City Night Market is on September 21st, so mark your calendars and follow our guests to keep on top of things:

This week we let 39 year old Evan and 19 year old Noah start the show, and they chose to spend ten minutes talking about boobs vs. butts before seguing into the hot topic of "nipple sizes". We let your sidekicks spread their wings a little, and this is how they repay us. There's plenty of quibbling about Trader Joe's, quitting pizza, birdwatching, bagel sandwiches, astrology, and other terribly non-important stuff that will act as a lovely distraction to the fact that society as we know it is collapsing.
This week we welcome one of our closest personal friends and personal dessert heroes to the podcast: David Alima of The Charmery! For those of you who don't know Allison's second favorite dessert is ice cream, and The Charmery is her favorite ice cream shop in America (it may have played a part in the decision to relocate to Baltimore). Join us as we discuss (and argue about) the ice cream science, price of vanilla, how to juice meat, flavor inspiration, Raven-Symone, waffle cones, library security guards and, as always, a bunch of stuff that has absolutely nothing to do with the topic we had planned for.
