Today, we’ll spend the show with food personality David Chang to talk about his new Hulu series, “The Next Thing You Eat,” which — full disclosure — our host Gustavo Arellano appears in. We’ll discuss what David found, why he thinks Southern California is such a great place for food, and also the future of the food industry in the era of COVID-19.


He also has a raw conversation about how the harsh working conditions in restaurants can be improved, and about his own anger.
