In a star-studded episode of the podcast, Talia talks with Kat Kinsman, senior editor of Food & Wine; Helen Rosner, food correspondent for the New Yorker; and Pete Wells, restaurant critic for the New York Times, about chowder, and also chapter 15, "Chowder," where Queequeg and Ishmael eat some chowder. We discuss regional chowder differences, chowder memories, the weird cow that wears cod heads on its feet, how the Kennedys made chowder, Camille Paglia, cunnilingus, clamming and much, much more. Hark, sweet friends!
