Join writer Alison Riley and New York Times­-bestselling author and comedian Samantha Irby for a conversation on food, pop culture, and survival — and on Riley’s buzzy new anthology, Recipe for Disaster. Part story collection and part recipe book, Recipe for Disaster gathers a who’s who from the worlds of food, music, art, literature, activism, fashion, and pop culture — including Bowen Yang, Thundercat, Sarah Silverman, Alice Waters, Samantha Irby herself, and many more — to tell stories of finding comfort in food. Hear Riley and Irby on this deeply funny, heartbreaking, candid collection of stories — why Riley took on the project, how food connects us to who we are, personal stories that didn’t make it into the book, and more.
