Deborah Pardes runs a loose ship. At her Get Smart live podcast recordings, the talk-show style is the exact opposite of uptight, instead leaning towards informed, curious, jokey, and slightly self-deprecating. At this session, called "Food Fight! The Challenge of Making Food Taste Good While it Saves Your Life" her guests are Dr. Daphne Miller, a doctor whose recently published book (The Jungle Effect: A Doctor Discovers the Healthiest Diets From Around the World - Why They Work and How to Bring Them Home) charts her food-observing globetrots -- and then also some chick named Traci Des Jardins. A chef or something? Maybe you've heard of her? The show is recorded before a live audience, and usually features one "thinker" and one "do-er," so that when the one mentions something interesting, the other demonstrates it. This particular episode seems like it may work out really nutritiously for the audience.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
