Prof. Kilo Zamora, a gender scholar at the University of Utah, was back to continue crowdsourcing material for his class on gender and nature, breaking down norms and hierarchies based on the lived experiences of local folks. Tonight's guest: Chef Max Winterholler, who says restaurants are built on hierarchies. With a degree in Anthropology, Chef Max even gets to the nature or nurture question about BBQ skills passed down from the Dawn of Time. Take a listen!
