Last Call is The Takeout’s online watering hole where you can chat, share recipes, and bullshit the night away. Here’s what we’ve been reading/watching/listening around the office today.
Kurt Vonnegut on the shape of stories
This 4 minute 30 second clip from Kurt Vonnegut taught me more about storytelling than any book or writing class. [Kevin Pang]
Best food writing of 2017
Need some weekend reading? Good, because The Gannet’s best food writing of the year list is out, and it contains probably 72 hours worth of material. I’m happy to see the inclusion of not just writing but podcasts and photos as well, ranging from heavy topics like sexism in Bengali cuisine to lighter fare like the quest to short-cut rum’s aging process. Anything you think deserved to be on here? I am always, always looking for new reading/viewing/listening material. [Kate Bernot]
