In this live taping of The Sporkful food podcast, comedian Hari Kondabolu talks with host Dan Pashman about the foods Hari grew up eating in Queens, the items Apu from The Simpsons offers at the Kwik-E-Mart, why you shouldn't ask Indian-Americans about Indian food, and the time Hari mistook a papaya for a mango.
The Sporkful isn't for foodies, it's for eaters. It's a podcast where host Dan Pashman obsesses about food to learn more about people, whether that means talking with people like Weird Al, Kumail Nanjiani, and Amy Sedaris, discussing deeper issues of food and identity, or arguing about the ideal surface-area-to-volume ratio of ice cubes. The Sporkful is the #1 food podcast in Apple Podcasts and has been nominated for two James Beard Awards. It's produced by Stitcher.
