We're Racist Sandwich, a podcast originally from Portland, Oregon, about food, race, class, and gender. When original hosts Soleil Ho and Zahir Janmohamed first met, they soon realized that their individual experiences added up to a provocative thesis: that both food and the ways we consume, create, and interpret it – can be political.
Every two weeks, we serve up conversations and perspectives you don't hear anywhere else in food media. From how food media erased Black barbecue heritage in Texas, to how society uses food to shame the poor, to how a Spanish-English pidgin in restaurant kitchens is fostering solidarity in the current political climate, we center voices of color in an overwhelmingly white industry.
The podcast will always be free for everyone, but we set up this Patreon because we need your help to continue making the show. Here's what your donation will help us do:
- Upgrade our recording equipment and pay tape syncers, so we can bring you super clear, crisp audio no matter where we are.
- Pay our producer and freelancers in different cities to create segments that go beyond our geographic scope.
- Publish a biweekly newsletter that will include fun and informative content that goes beyond what we can cover in the podcast itself.
- Include full transcripts of each biweekly episode for folks who are hard of hearing, D/deaf, and/or learning English.
- Pay musicians who are composing unique tracks just for us!
If you enjoy the podcast and would like to ensure that it continues to provide smart and insightful perspectives on food, race, class, and gender issues, please consider pledging – even a small amount helps.
