Dan Rodricks

Roughly Speaking: Presidential primary races, winter comfort food (episode 39)

In this podcast:

  • 1:40: Mileah Kromer, who oversees the Goucher Poll, joins Dan and Baltimore Sun editorial writer Peter Jensen to talk about another wild week in presidential politics, featuring Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump in the Republican presidential primary and the Clinton camp’s response to the Bernie challenge on the Democratic side.

  • 20:55: David Zurawik, the Sun's media critic, talks about Palin's oddly poetic way with words on television, and about news coverage of winter storms.

  • 40:19: Baltimore restaurateurs Henry Hong and John Shields join Dan in offering some winter weekend cooking suggestions, including Irish stew, coq au vin, pasta fagioli, mac-and-cheese and Hong’s special chili.

  • 1:00:35: Foodies will enjoy book critic Paula Gallagher's recommended reading: "Cheddar: A Journey to the Heart of America's Most Iconic Cheese."

It's Walt Whitman meets hip-hop meets Alaska.
