This episode is part of a special series in collaboration with Gastronomica: The Journal for Food Studies, whose forthcoming issue is entirely devoted to COVID Dispatches—in it, authors from around the world offer short, intimate portraits of early responses to the food crises of this pandemic, and hosts from the journal’s editorial collective will be joined by some of the featured authors to share their stories, and to hear how things have or haven't changed in the past few months.

Stephen Meinster reads from his essay The Sickness Unto Hospitality, and discusses how the industry has evolved in recent months with guest host Bob Valgenti.
