Society Behind The Stat Podcast: Ep. 01 – Cooking with Bry Disanto

This week Adam and Scott launched a podcast, Society Behind The Stat.

The premise behind the pod is simple: We’re increasingly bombarded with data. We are overloaded with it, drowning in it, and desensitized to numbers. But behind all of the numbers are people, and their stories. Each episode we feature a data point or statistic, and then speak to a relevant guest about his or her lived experience. This is what the show is all about.

For our inaugural episode we talk to the multi-talented Bryan Disanto, host of Cucina Quarantina, about cooking as coping during COVID-19.

And a friendly reminder that Taco Tuesday comes every week…
