This week on the Splendid Table, it's another installment in our series "The Key 3", interviews with chefs and good cooks about the three recipes that they think other good cooks should know. This week its award-winning chef Andrea Reusing, of Chapel Hill's "The Lantern". The Sterns are at "The Blue Bonnet Café" in Marble Falls, TX and we get the story of the Vietnamese tradition of "monthly rice" from journalist Claudia Volker.
This week on Bullseye we revisit Jesse’s interview with the delightful stand-up comic Simon Amstell. On TV, he prods at the powers-that-be and has even caused a few walk-offs. But despite the escapades, Amstell spends much of his time on stage and off looking inward, at himself. The self-doubt got so deep that he went on a shamanic quest to South America for answers. Then Brian K Vaughn talks about his comic book series SAGA. It's a space fantasy about parenting with a deep, engaging mythology.
This week, forensic linguists use what they know about speech and writing to testify in courtrooms. And get out your hankies! Martha and Grant are talking about the language of … sneezing.
And what do you call it when you clean the house in a hurry because company's coming? How about "making lasagna" or "shame cleaning"? Plus who's a hoopie, down goes your shanty, hold on to your blueberry money, and gym slang fit for a cardio queen.
