A special live edition of The Moth at Cooper Union in NYC, "Moth Eaten: Adventures in Food". Best-selling author Adam Gopnik and his wife have an ongoing battle about the proper way to cook meat; celebrity chef David Chang shares his anxiety about receiving, and possibly losing, Michelin Stars; comedian Lisa Lampanelli tells about her hilarious and moving stint at a fitness camp.
In this episode of The Moth Radio Hour, Adam Gopnik and his wife love cooking but cannot find compromise in their opposite stances on meat: well-done versus rare.
