May 2020 is the five-year anniversary of Sup Doc.

To celebrate we’re talking food documentaries all month long for Munchie May, our brand new theme series.

We talk to comedian Derek Sheen about his pick, NOMA: MY PERFECT STORM (Pierre Deschamps 2015). 

For three years running, Noma in Copenhagen was voted the "Best restaurant in the world." This puts an immense amount of pressure on René Redzepi, the driven chef who has up-ended the food world and put Nordic cuisine on the map. He has an attitude and brilliance that is undeniable but he starts questioning his own motivations and ideas about success. Along the way we meet the foragers, suppliers, staff, and critics who all have their lives changed by Noma.

Our guest Derek Sheen is a cuddly mess of insecurities and a gifted, one-of-a-kind storyteller. His dark humor has made Derek a cult favorite of comedy nerds everywhere. He has amassed a loyal fan base touring with comedy legends Brian Posehn, Patton Oswalt, and Janeane Garofalo. Derek has released four critically acclaimed albums on Stand Up! Records, with Grammy Winning producer Dan Schlissel. The most recent, "Macho Caballero", just came out on April 24th and is on Streaming Services everywhere.

Our sponsor for this week's show is Berkeley-based Squabisch, artisanal pretzel business that does curbside-pickups (and some delivery within the East Bay). Check out their website and tell them Sup Doc sent you!
