How did a story about hog rectum and calamari on public radio capture the public's attention and win a James Beard Award? Find out on a brand new episode of Eat Your Words, as host Talia Ralph is joined by Ben Calhoun, a producer for NPR's This American Life, who contributed the story about hog rectum to the popular public radio show. He got a tip about a meat plant selling pig intestines as fake calamari, wondered if it could be true, and decided to investigate. Tune in as Ben explains how the story came to life and shares why he became so emotionally invested in the possibility of pork bung masquerading as seafood.

"I like finding all the paths to go down and chasing them all as far as they can possibly go." [06:00]

"Pricing in American food culture ends up obscuring so many other things that are happening with those foods." [25:00]

"The story appealed to different parts of my personality as a journalist and somebody who likes to make radio [...] I love the idea of it. If you didn't have to use the word rectum, it could be a children's book." [27:00]

"If you eat calamari in the United States, I can't guarantee anything but I'd bet everything I own that you're not eating hog rectum [...] eat your calamari with confidence!" [28:00]

This episode of the Joshua David Stein Variety Hour....Half Hour starts with a poem by Linh Dinh, a Vietnamese-American poet, fiction writer, translator, and photographer. Joshua then delves into the unpacking of politics surrounding fried chicken, starting with his review of Birds & Bubbles (click here to read). He talks with culinary educator, Michael Twitty (Afroculinaria), about the racial connection sometimes made with fried chicken and how sometimes people misunderstand it. In the second half of the show, musical guest Corn Mo talks about his music and plays us three of his sweet tunes. This show was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.

"You can try to divorce things like that from their past context but these things die hard and as long as they're out there, this is an issue we have to deal with." [9:45]

"Some of these stereotypes about groups will come down to the next generation and they'll manifest but the issue is do they understand them?" [9:45]

--Michael Twitty on the Joshua David Stein Variety Hour...Half Hour

"Me and a friend of mine Magic Brian, we would do a New Year's eve show at Parkside Lounge every year, where I would make my famous ribs, made of pork. I also made kale ribs for the vegan friends." [23:30]

This week on Native, we're joining host Briana Kurtz on a journey through the Eastern Tennessee, Knoxville area guided by guests Jeff Ross of Blackberry Farm and Dustin Busby of Century Harvest Farms. In the first half of the show, Briana speaks with Jeff, who is the Garden Manager at Blackberry Farm about not only the wide breadth of operations happening at Blackberry Farm but also his particular role and what it entails. In charge of growing most of the organic produce used by the kitchen, he also leads cooking classes and demonstrations for guests. Often, he cooks traditional yet elevated Appalachian foods with the guests over an open flame contained in the vast garden area. Local specialities like berries, trout, and venison paint the picture of a local cuisine deeply integrated with the land. Jeff's favorite dish? A German-style pork and beans dish with an interesting history to the area. After the break, Briana speaks with Dustin Busby of Century Harvest Farms whose past includes cooking his way around the world at restaurants such as Woodlands, French Laundry, and Fat Duck. Dustin also spent time as an Executive Sous Chef and Farmstead Manager at Blackberry before moving to Chef and Farm Manager for Century Harvest Farms. Additionally, he is a partner in the Hoof food truck. Knoxville and the surrounding area is an exciting and affordable place to be right now - tune in to find out more! This program has been brought to you by Heritage Foods USA.

"Blackberry Farm is a hotel and resort, culinary destination, and working farm plus about a million other things rolled into one." [2:10]

--Jeff Ross on Native

"Because of the mountains and the lay of the land, there's so many different aspects. You can travel ten miles and the soil and culture there is different and it's really amazing." [21:23]

--Dustin Busby on Native
