Interviews with chefs, celebrities, and everyday eaters straight out of Los Angeles, California.
A New York Episode
1:00:06Jordan talks a recent trip to New York with self-described New York expert Michael Shayefar. Top 5 NYC restaurants, Don Angie is so hot right now, Lugers, Katz’s, JG Melon, Momofuku, LA vs NY, and one hell of a stay at The New York Edition.
Dead in Chicago
1:15:07Deep dish, hot dogs, Italian beef, Polish sausages, cracker crust pizza, fried shrimp, John Mayer, and the Grateful Dead is what was consumed by Jordan, Uncle Pints, and new Air Jordan shining star Rob Reinis. Thunderstorms, ice cream sundaes, tons of hippies, Jordan dancing, more fried shrimp, tight schedules, and two nights of sleeveless shirts... This episode has it all.
Family Style & Michelins with Ben Hundreds
1:18:52The food festival of all food festivals is back with in person gluttony and an all-time lineup of restaurants and brands collaborating on dream-like food items and merch, and its Wizard of Oz, Ben Hundreds returns to talk it all. Max Shapiro also joins, and he hates food festivals and loves the Michelin awards, and has plenty to say about the newly announced California culinary awards.
Nobu Malibu, Audience Questions, and DineLA
1:03:14Kate Burr and Max Block return to Air Jordan to talk kugel vs blintzes, Simon Cowell and the good seat in Malibu, Tatel Beverly Hills, French L.A. restaurants, Kate's tuna rankings, the return of Family Style Food Festival, steakhouses, L.A. vs NYC burgers, the most overrated restaurants, and the best new DineLA deals.
A Healthy Relationship with Food
59:29Brooke Glazer is a registered dietician nutritionist who loves food and Air Jordan: A Food Podcast, and has been listening to Jordan talk about his diet, fasting beliefs, and the eating advice he's been giving his listeners. In the course of their discussion, she helps Jordan understand a different way to approach it all, and possibly begin having a healthier relationship with his beloved food.
A Night at Etta
1:27:40Jordan is joined by returning AJ guests Max Winkler, Josh Peck, and Max Shapiro to talk an epic meal at the brand new Culver City pizza, pasta, and gelato house known as Etta. Also discussed: Shapiro the television star, butter & garlic, hats in restaurants, Hebrew names, eating cheeks, pillows in prison, branzino or sea bass, Josh disrespects bagels, and "Picturegate."
Matū with Jerry Greenberg and Team
1:18:05It's not a steakhouse. Matū is a grassfed wagyu experience from Jerry Greenberg, Scott Linder, and Ryan Gianola, who all join Jordan to talk the South Beverly Drive house of New Zealand beefiness. And there will also be mushrooms, chocolate cake, iceberg vs romaine, possibly shrimp, less possibly fire-grilled wagyu fat caps, eventually cheesesteaks, and all the steak you can handle.
Audience Questions & The Alice Waters Remix Interview
1:28:05To celebrate 50 years of Chez Panisse, we replay the 2019 Air Jordan Alice Waters interview, where the queen talks microwave hatred, tacos vs burritos, burgers vs steaks, LA vs NY, and of course all that farm-to-table slow cooking. But before that, Jordan and Max review the recent LA Times Food article on Chez Panisse and the fellas answer questions from the audience like most disappointing hyped new restaurants, how to build the perfect five ingredient sandwich, LA vs SF, Langer's vs Katz's, best LA cocktail, Jordan's Bavel mushroom skewer issue, how to curb those fat body food cravings, and so many more very important topics.
The L.A. O.G. Josiah Citrin
1:14:08The L.A. born and raised 2 Michelin star chef behind Melisse, Citrin, Charcoal, and Dear John's joins Jordan and Max to talk all the restaurants, all the chicken including a new restaurant and California Chicken Cafe, needing good Chinese food, cooking steak, the lobster bolognese, and Doritos of course.
The Caroline & Suzanne Episode
1:16:48Caroline Styne and Suzanne Goin have been partners in food and life for over 20 years, feeding Los Angeles their hearts, souls, and bacon-wrapped parmesan-stuffed dates. They join Jordan to talk the new AOC Brentwood, the perfect Hollywood Bowl bites, top 3 items on a cheese plate, finally opening in DTLA, and the goddamn Coron.
