On today's episode, George talks Los Angeles and food adventures with comedian and foodie Karl Hess. George eulogizes Genova Deli and berates Bakesale Betty, and Karl evangelizes LA. Check out Karl's food podcast, Yelling About Pâté.

Jonathan Gold is an American food critic who currently writes for the Los Angeles Times and has previously written for LA Weekly and Gourmet. He is also a regular on KCRW's Good Food radio program. Gold often chooses small, ethnic restaurants for his reviews, although he covers all types of cuisine. CITY OF GOLD also explores the rigor, knowledge and compassion that makes Jonathan’s style of criticism stand apart. Jonathan Gold maps Los Angeles through his Odyssey-like quests for new food experiences so that we too can discover and understand our city.

Featured in the film are Roy Choi, David Chang, and Ludo Lefebvre, as well as the chefs and owners behind some of Gold’s favorites: Jitlada (Southern Thai), Guelaguetza (Oaxacan), Meals by Genet (Ethiopian), and Chengdu Taste (Sichuan). City of Gold is directed by Laura Gabbert (who also worked on the Netflix series Ugly Delicious)
