Laura Avery talks to CJ Jacobson, executive chef at Girasol in Studio City. CJ is shopping for “green pistachios,” the freshly harvested raw nuts that are only in season for one week out of the year.
David Bomer, aka “Boomer,” has been working for Santa Barbara Pistachio Company for over ten years. He explains why fresh pistachios are so perishable and why they are only brought to market for one week each year.

In May of this year we dipped a toe into fat shaming on this show - mostly about how it affects women - we spoke to one journalist on that show on whether or not it’s even possible to fat shame a man. After the show aired we did hear from some of our male listeners who said yes... it is possible and it does happen. So we were curious to learn more. We reached out to Dr. Allison Field of Harvard University who studies the effects of body pressures on boys and men.
