NOLADrinks Show – Discussing Systemic Racism in the Hospitality Industry – Jun20Ep2

We start things off letting you know about next week’s show and this week’s show. We also let you know a bit of context about this week’s show. Namely, how, obviously, this critical conversation sits in a much larger set of issues and manifestations. Of course, given the focus of The NOLADrinks Show (“exploring the world of drink, food, and culture in New Orleans and beyond!”) and the time constraints we face each week, we focus on the hospitality industry.

Then, we head over to the Southern Food and Beverage Museum for our featured interview. We are joined by Lauren Darnell, executive director of the Made in New Orleans Foundation, Mason Hereford, chef/owner of Turkey and the Wolf and Molly’s Rise and Shine, and Alexis Ruiz, co-owner of the Munch Factory.

We have an honest and candid conversation with our guests (thanks to them for being a part of this challenging conversation and leading the way!) In general, we discuss ways that systemic racism manifests in the hospitality industry. We touch on many facets (and as we noted at the top of the show, many we didn’t.) We also have some conversation about things that can (and must) be done to make real change, do the work, and move beyond the performative.

Our three guests stick around for our podcast-only segment, “Another Shot with NOLADrinks.” We continue our conversation including a discussion on how food connects us deeply to our past and each other.
