Is Eating This Racist?

The question of cultural appropriation and food in this podcast. Being “cool and awkward” when foodies and chefs take on “ethnic food” that’s not their background. There’s a kind of racism and reverse-racism discourse in this episode, and the idea of “drive-by appropriation”.

Interesting idea about “translators” as a metaphor for considering this perspective.
