The Low Season

34. Bert (NYC)

June 12, 2020

We’re in NYC talking to food tour guide Bert James. Our first conversation in May centred on what pandemic restrictions might mean for a city that’s famously nocturnal. Given the recent BLM protests, we caught up again this week for an update. We talk about the importance of nightlife, social media real estate and the joy found in eavesdropping on a first date.  

Conversations from May 7th and June 9th 2020.
