You can hear Lauren Jackson on season 9, episode 17 of WUSF's The Zest

The newest episode of WUSF’s The Zest podcast was released late last week, and the guest might be familiar to you. 

Spoiler alert: It’s me!

The podcast’s host, Dalia Colón, and I met at a food event last year and immediately hit it off. We’ve connected over and over again, most recently in an interview about Colón's new cookbook, The Florida Vegetarian Cookbook. After our fascinating conversation about her book, she invited me to be a guest on the show, which airs weekly on Thursdays.

In the episode, I talk about what it’s really like to be a food writer: my recent Michelin Guide reviews in Tampa, my past work in hospitality, and how I love getting to write about food in our community every single day. Give it a listen to get to know me a little bit better. Cheers!
