Julián Castro On Nachos And Government

Julián Castro is a former San Antonio mayor, HUD secretary, and presidential candidate. Now he’s a political commentator, and he hosts the podcast Our America. When he sought the Democratic nomination for president in 2020, he made hunger one of his key campaign issues. This week, Secretary Castro joins us to discuss food policy, the power and limitations of boycotts, and what he thinks will be different under President Biden. But first: he gets the true Sporkful treatment when he and Dan discuss his DIY iced tea sweetener, his favorite hot sauce, and the politics of sharing nachos.
