Ep. 116 - New York Times columnist Mark Bittman took 30 minutes out of his book tour to talk music with us last week by the pool of his hotel in West Hollywood. He takes us through his childhood, from the Beatles (and knowing a bunch of the screaming girls in those classic New York photos), to Hendrix (who he saw five times.) And then talks about some of the music he listens to now, like tUnE-yArDs (yes, Mark Bittman dropped

a Tune Yards reference on us.)

Naturally we also talked about how much more political food has become, while at the same time music has seemlingly become less political.

Mark's new book "How to Cook Everything Fast" is out now.
