Preeti Mistry, chef-activist best known for their restaurant Juhu Beach Club, has been fighting injustice since a kid named Aaron pushed them too far in middle school—and they pushed back. As the food industry cracks under the strain of COVID and reimagines ways to confront systemic racism, Preeti offers a holistic view of the way forward. They share refreshing and realistic views on gentrification, reflections about their own role in pay inequity, thoughts on approaching intersectionality as a minority, and many more insights rooted in visions for a more equitable world.

In March, HRN began producing all of our 35 weekly shows from our homes all around the country. It was hard work stepping away from our little recording studio, but we know that you rely on HRN to share resources and important stories from the world of food each week. It’s been a tough year for all of us, but right now HRN is asking for your help. Every dollar that listeners give to HRN provides essential support to keep our mics on. We've got some fresh new thank you gifts available, like our limited edition bandanas.
