Today on Snacky Tunes, we talk to Karasu founder Yael Peet, who tells us about her career change from art school (with dreams of cartooning) to the world of food, sharp knives, and putting twists on Japanese cuisine.

Later, we hear intimate piano + vocals only versions of music by Charlene Kaye (KAYE), a New York-based artist who got her start singing with the indie rock collective known as San Fermin. One of her anecdotes? She got most of the gear for the music video below at a Halloween store.
