Food and Music - such a simple but powerful combination. From restaurants with music directors, to dishes paired with specific songs, to meals based around entire albums; there's an entire world that sits in the intersection between food and music. On this episode we sit down with musician Meric Long of The Dodos; music director, Katie Mathis, of Flour + Water; and chef Blair Warsham, of graffeats to discuss this rich and unique interaction.  We also play music from artists performing at the upcoming food and music festival, Noisette (Aug. 4th at Public Works in San Francisco).
