Today’s episode of Oh Boy features none other than Gail Simmons. It will comfort you to know that Simmons, like everyone else, didn’t have a clue what she wanted to do after college. She didn’t really know what she wanted to do while in college, either. In fact…she didn’t even know anything about food, according to a food editor she spoke to while hunting for her first job. So how did she get to be who she is and where she is, with two hit shows -- Top Chef and Top Chef: Just Desserts -- and a published book with a title that proclaims, “I have the best job ever!” (It’s called “Talking With My Mouth Full: My Life As a Professional Eater,” hello!)? Wellll…you just have to plug in your headphones and listen to this episode, don’t you?
