We’re bringing you this week’s episode early, just before Thanksgiving, because our guest, Michael Twitty, is a culinary historian. You can listen to him and creative director Stephanie Rudig talk about food and identity, growing up in D.C., and a memorable anti-Thanksgiving dinner in their wide-ranging conversation. Host Will Warren is also here to catch you up on the news. The Council is considering a deal that would clear the way for the George Washington University Hospital to operate a hospital in Ward 8 and expand in Foggy Bottom, and it unanimously passed a bill that, should it become law, would strengthen rent control.
