Food Psych #2: Unholy Appetites

This episode explores what happens to people's relationships to food when they grow up with strict religious dietary laws and then walk away from religion.

First we talk with Pervaiz Shallwani, a Brooklyn-based journalist and classically trained cook who was raised Muslim and is now obsessed with pork.

Then we chat with a psychologist who wants to remain nameless (and therefore un-Googleable), but we'll reveal his identity on the podcast! This insightful and delightful mystery guest left the Orthodox Jewish faith during college and now has a boundless appetite for non-kosher foods, but a certain chocolate babka still holds a special place in his heart.
