We're re-sharing our episode with the fantastic author, chef, historian, and mensch Michael Twitty about bubbemeises. Call them old wives tales, call them folk wisdom, call them what you will, we're not ignoring them anytime soon. We'll hear from: a bevy of past guests on their bubbemeise; The Angry Asian Man, Phil Yu, and his lovely wife, Joanna Lee, about how honoring the traditions of their ancestors made their first year of parenthood easier to endure, and more meaningful, too; and finally, Michael Twitty himself on why we are our ancestors best fantasy and to remember that we own the source code. Get all the wisdom here, fam!
