Richard's Famous Food Podcast

Jul 1, 2020

Richard takes his friend and fellow podcaster David Weinberg (from RFFP episode 6 “Natural Wineberg”) on a Hollywood food tour for breakfast, lunch, and dinner — with Chef Wolfgang Puck riding shotgun.


This episode is a crossover with David Weinberg's KCRW podcast Welcome To LA. It was edited by Nick White.


Richard’s Famous Food Podcast is made by Richard Parks III. Our theme song is by Bobby Halvorson. The mustachio'd pickle logo is by James Braithwaite. Richard's podcast career is managed by Russell Quinn.

A satirical version of Dr. Dre’s “Let Me Ride” but about eating in and around Hollywood in the early 1990s. "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" from The Nutcracker, written by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and performed by William Zeitler on the glass armonica, an instrument invented by Benjamin Franklin. (Look it up on YouTube.) Lizzo’s “Juice.” “Prelude in C Major” by JS Bach, performed by Richard. Green Day’s “Basket Case” but with shruti box drones and lyrics about juice.
