    Dinner and a Podcast. Imagine an intimate meal for four followed by a socio-cultural serenade, otherwise known as a home-cooked meal at Farai's house in Brookly plus, on site, a podcast interview with a fascinating guest. Farai considers cooking an art and pleasure, having made a Moroccan feast for 22 this summer. We'll have an intimate dinner (respecting your dietary choices) and then gather for a professional recording of an episode of One with Farai at her Brooklyn home. We may be able to do YOUR home if you prefer... if not in New York, host is responsible for staff travel and lodging. Date and location by mutual arrangement between April 2015 and May 2016. Maybe you'll be our first live show! For more details and stipulations, contact OneWithFarai@gmail.com. (And yes, you get the Triple Download and The Nomination.)
