In this episode, we interview Buzzfeed Books Editor Isaac Fitzgerald about his new book, Knives & Ink: Chefs and the Stories Behind Their Tattoos. The book, which features beautiful illustrations by Wendy Macnaughton, is out now. Isaac and Soleil share tattoo stories, both of which you don't want to miss. In addition to talking about the book, we grill Isaac on what it takes to be a good ally and gatekeeper in the publishing industry, which is so very homogenous.
We also have a few big announcements packed into this episode: Soleil is moving to Mexico to open a restaurant (and will continue hosting the show from abroad), AND we're starting a Patreon to help make the podcast more sustainable!
