Richard’s Famous Food Podcast is pretty hard to describe. It’s technically a podcast that deals in food documentaries, but it’s also a cartoonish acid trip that rarely follows a straight line. Genuinely one of the most bizarre things you’ll ever hear, the show is also distinct for the fact that it’s all the creation of one person: Richard Parks III, a food writer, documentarian, filmmaker, and audio producer. This week, Nick asks Parks to walk through a single episode of the show – “Cornichon’s Quest” – as a way to figure out how the podcast works. A Woman’s Smile Have You Heard George’s Podcast?

It's hot, the world is nuts — but inside RFFP, we're mixing up a refreshing, delicious, ice-cold beer cocktail from Mexico: the michelada. So leave the dog days of summer behind, and join us on a journey in search of the definition of the American Michelada — from its origins in Mexico, to its present as an emerging player in American big beer, to its possible future — through the lens of some LA miche hitters who know the drink best. Featuring: Fernando Lopez and Kristene Garcia from I Love Micheladas, Cesar Hernandez and Memo Torres (a.k.a. "El Tragon de Los Angeles") from LA Taco, and a whole lot of michelada fun. Richard's Famous Food Podcast is made by Richard Parks III. The lion's share of the music in this episode is by Jonathan Snipes. Thank you so much, Jonathan. Our theme song is by Bobby Halvorson. Our logo is by James Braithwaite. The cumbia is "Como Se Arma una Cumbia" by Chucho Ponce Los Daddys de Chinantla. The rap at the end of the episode is an RFFP-ified version of "Indo Smoke" by Mista Grimm, featuring Warren G and Nate Dogg. (Originally. This one features Richard.)
