Is failure the best teacher? In this episode of Speaking Broadly, writer and Director of Finance at Sea Creatures Alex Pemoulie traces the arc of her relationship with failure. She shares her first perceived failures including dropping out of a semester abroad in Paris, cutting ties with the 'good girl' within, and staying too long with an abusive boyfriend. Pemoulie then embraces failure with ferocity while working at Momofuku with Dave Chang, who is master of the art of learning from mistakes. If you've ever doubted the power of taking responsibility for risky choices and their inconsistent outcomes, you need to hear Alex's take on the healthy and not-so-healthy ways of dealing with the F-word.

Preeti Mistry: The Future of Food Leadership

Preeti Mistry, chef-activist best known for their restaurant Juhu Beach Club, has been fighting injustice since a kid named Aaron pushed them too far in middle school—and they pushed back.

Preeti Mistry: The Future of Food Leadership

Leadership Lessons from a Skater-Journalist-Musician: Jamila Robinson

Philadelphia Inquirer food editor Jamila Robinson learns leadership lessons from her everyday life, whether as a violinist realizing everyone needs to be "bowing in the same direction"; as a skater, remembering to stay centered to accomplish seemingly impossible feats; or as a patient, listening to her body (and ignoring her mind's get-back-to-work rhetoric) after abdominal surgery. Robinson is in tune with ideas that both bring people together and value the needs of the individual. Listen in to hear about her upbringing among musicians, activists and cooks, and also why, when she was 10, this journalist knew that she was the absolute best person to interview Michael Jackson.

Cooking for Freedom: Dominique Crenn

"That love, that passion, that authenticity you have within yourself always connects with others." Those are wise words from Dominique Crenn, chef/owner of San Francisco's Atelier Crenn and author of a new book, Rebel Chef: In Search of What Matters. Known as one of the greatest chefs in the world, Crenn's gift is connecting with all humanity through her poetic cooking. It is her philosophy, not technique that brought her to the top. And it's a philosophy that's necessary at this moment of discord, mistrust, and also profound change and opportunity. Listen in to learn what inspired Crenn's pursuit of freedom over and above all else. Want to stay up to date on the latest Speaking Broadly episodes?

Death isn't 1, 2, 3: Rozanne Gold

Rozanne Gold is likely best known for cooking for her series of books that taught us how to cook with 3 ingredients—ideal in the time of COVID19. But what might be even more powerful now, is her current work: acting as an end of life doula and writing poetry. As we deal with an unprecedented disruption from a global pandemic, eternal questions about the meaning of life and death come into focus.

The Empathetic Rebel: Claudette Zepeda

Claudette Zepeda is a Mexican and American star chef who's lived at the border of two countries, two food traditions, two ways of life. Instead of creating a bridge between all of her experiences, Zepeda created a parachute. Jumping into new situations, packing up what she learned, and bringing them along on her adventures. She was a mother at 18, which helped her become a great leader and listener in the kitchen. She worked in Italian and French restaurants, and uses those techniques in her cooking today. Check out episode 128 to hear about her childhood challenges with authority, feast or famine finances, and love of the women who are the heart of Mexican food.

Food is Beautiful: Susan Spungen

One of the best-respected food stylists in the country, Susan Spungen doles out advice for gorgeous meals to make from your freezer, pantry, farmers' market and more on episode 127 ofSpeaking Broadly. Author of the recently published Open Kitchen, Spungen also describes her approach to her career: "When you're driving, you can see the road ahead of you for a little bit, and then you can't really see it anymore. Well, I never really tried having a five year plan, but I just tried to see that bit of road in front of me." It's a strategy that has been effective for her: in the 90s she landed a position at Martha Stewart Living where she stayed for 12 years, as well as a job of food stylist for Hollywood movies including Nora Ephron's Julie & Julia. Spungen makes a great case for only planning life bit by bit.
