Good morning, paid subscribers! Now that it’s just us in the room, I feel comfortable confiding that I can’t make up my mind whether to create a corollary podcast for The Food Section: I’d love to hear your thoughts on the matter (or any others: E-mail tips, questions and suggestions to readthefoodsection@gmail.com)

In the meantime, allow me to present what amounts to a podcast on the page: My recent conversation with Davidson College associate professor Joseph Ewoodzie Jr., who in October published Getting Something to Eat in Jackson: Race, Class, and Food in the American South.

Help us cover food and drink across the American South as though it mattered as much as crime and politics (because it does.)
