Radio Hour: David Foster Wallace and Exploring LA’s Culinary History in Menus

This week’s show features an interview with Jason Segel and James Ponsoldt, the star and director of The End of the Tour, a new film that dramatizes journalist David Lipsky’s four-day interview with the late author David Foster Wallace. In the second half of the show, music and food writer Josh Kun joins to talk about his new book To Live and Dine in L.A., a history of Los Angeles food culture and politics that’s accompanied by rarely seen old menus from the archives of the Los Angeles Public Library.


Featuring Tom Lutz, Laurie Winer, and Seth Greenland. Produced by Jerry Gorin.


As a bonus this week, we've got a video interview with Jason Segel and James Ponsoldt, along with video commentary with Tom, Laurie, and Seth.
