In honor of our 10th anniversary we’re re-releasing three of our all time favorite episodes, selected by listeners, each with a brand new update. This story is in two parts. The second part is here, with a special update. On Saturday night, September 26 at 9pm Eastern / 6pm Pacific, join us for our 10th Anniversary Party on Instagram Live with special guests Carla Hall and Sohla El-Waylly. We're also raising money for Feeding America. Follow Dan on Instagram so you don’t miss the party.

In the past year, Kwame Onwuachi has become one of the fastest rising star chefs in America. He was executive chef at the DC restaurant Kith and Kin which is widely considered one of the best in the country. But he went through countless twists and turns to get there. His story is so wild that he wrote a memoir, Notes From A Young Black Chef, that's being made into a movie starring Lakeith Stanfield.

Kwame shares the first half of that story live on stage, in conversation with Dan at the Miracle Theatre in Washington, DC. This is the first part of a 2-part conversation with Kwame Onwuachi. You can listen to Part 2 here
