audio will be available soon, runs about 40 minutes. Roy, founder of LA's Kogi Korean taco trucks, was charming and Terry was intrigued.

excerpt:
"I was embarrassed to show the food [we were eating] because everywhere I went, it was so different. Youngsters are mean to each other sometimes so I'd bring friends over and they'd look at my food and they'd be like, "Ew, what is that?"

... When you bring a bunch of rich friends from Orange Country over to your house and your whole house is surrounded by dead salted fish, it was tough."
