Season 3 | Episode 6: "Food Trucking"

Austin, Texas: home to live music, weird vibes, and many, many food trucks. In this episode, we interview food truck experts on both sides of the register in order to discuss the rhetorical appeal of food trucks and why that appeal is so successful here in Austin. From the patron's point-of-view, food trucks are a polarizing part of food culture. For the people who run the food trucks, the truck is a fun and practical way to do what they love. Warm thanks go to our new food truck friends at Melvin's Deli Comfort, Hey!... You Gonna Eat or What?, Mighty Cone, and Skinny Limits.
