the show is geared for local eating--around southern CA mostly--for people who want to find little gems of eateries near where they live. for that, the show is very informative; i love the interviews with jonathan gold (LA Weekly), who, after hearing the interview segment, will make you hungry. in fact, i try not to listen to the show when i'm hungry. my only gripe, if i had to have one, is that some of the interviews are far too short and seems to skip too many details. but overall, evan keliman is the perfect host.
