Rank #1: Chef Enrique Olvera on Cultural Appropriation, Trump's Possible Reelection, and Tex-mex

Podcast cover
Read more

In this special episode, I speak to Mexico's most famous chef, Enrique Olvera, owner of two of the world's top 25 restaurants—Pujol in Mexico City (ranked 12th) and Cosme in New York City (ranked 23rd). Chef Olvera opened up about a number of controversial issues, including the alleged cultural appropriation of Mexican cuisine by white chefs in the United States, the prohibitive cost of his restaurants for many Mexicans, and the possible reelection of Donald Trump. And he had a surprising take on Tex-mex!

Rank #2: Life is a Telenovela

Podcast cover
Read more

Telenovelas are ridiculous, over-the-top, and absurdly entertaining. But if you're thinking that they are just frivolous fun—think again. Telenovelas have had an outsized influence on Mexico, from helping to bring down the world’s most notorious drug lord “El Chapo” to increasing the sales of birth control. But as Mexico changes, telenovelas are struggling to keep up with a new wave of daring television. I speak to Mexico’s first openly gay telenovela actor, Rebelde's Christian Chavez, one of its brightest new stars, Dario Yazbek Bernal, and the lead writer of Netflix’s La Casa de las Flores, Mara Vargas Jackson, about how their work is shattering taboos in Mexican television.

Rank #3: Deported

What does it feel like to be deported from the place you've spent your entire adult life? This episode, I speak to Jesus Ortiz, who was ripped away from his family in the United States and forced to return to Mexico. Jesus has an incredible personal story, but his experience reveals just as much about American immigration policy and Mexican attitudes towards outsiders.

When my husband and I quit our jobs and moved to Mexico City, we didn't expect to be locked down in a tiny apartment at the center of Mexico's COVID-19 outbreak. In this episode, I hit the streets of Mexico City to ask people why staying at home isn't an option.
