The Best of the Mash-Up Speed Round!

We celebrate our podcast quinceañera by getting real personal with our guests with the Mash-Up Speed Round. These questions boil down the essence of mashiness and get to the heart of our colorful, quirky, shared experiences. For example: Where do you feel most at home? What dating advice did you get from your immigrant parents? (None, basically.) We learn so much and we laugh so hard. Featuring the best of the best responses from Padma Lakshmi, Margaret Cho, Alan Yang, Aminatou Sow and more. Listen!
