Brightness Crumb with Grace Park & Jesse Dalton of The Deer 🍊
This week I spoke with Grace Park and Jesse Dalton, two members of the Austin-based band The Deer. If you listened to my recent episode with Buck Meek (of Big Thief), he recommended his fellow Texan musicians The Deer to be featured on the podcast, and I'm so glad he did. Their songs are spacious, with airy vocals and gentle percussion, and it’s a sound that compels comparisons to Fleetwood Mac, Neko Case or Mazzy Star. In this conversation, Jesse and Grace tell me about the beginning of the band, being back on the road after quarantine, their new album, and their process. We talk about trial and error, acceptance, friendship, grief, and much more.

[Updated Repost] Julia Turshen Part 1 - food, effortlessness, connection, control, writing, etc.
This one isn’t from that deep into the archive, it was one of my favorites of the year. You’ll hear more about it in the original intro but we split it into two parts and you’re about to hear part one of my two part conversation with chef and writer Julia Turschen. I thought would be timely for this week which is the start of the holiday season because. It’s a week where a lot of us will be gathering and there’s a lot of talk about food and eating and this episode gets into that. Julia has coauthored numerous cookbooks and has written for The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Saveur, and more.  The New York Times has described her “at the forefront of the new generation of authentic, approachable authors.” Julia not only loves cooking and writing about food, she also loves talking about it and hosts her own podcast, Keep Calm and Cook On. She’s genuine, talented, and kind. I loved this conversation with her that spanned a wide range of topics, including her creative process, working with big names on coauthored books, , body image, diet culture and the food industry, perfectionism as it relates to capitalism, effortlessness actually taking effort, connection, cooking for one, and more.

In this conversation, we cover “rejection as protection”, creative routines, money in NYC, feeling raw after breakups, transitions and how they make us fertile for growth, her specific practice of gratitude, and her useful body image advice.
