This week's episode of The Sporkful podcast is up! Listen through the player or iTunes/Podcasts app. (And please subscribe!)

Comedian and Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr. is known for his thoughtful and pointed takes on race. He joins us to discuss McRib conspiracy theories, the dangers of touring the south as a black comic, and the advantages of bad service and Confederate flags.

Plus Roy talks about what he learned about food from his father over the course of their conflicted relationship, and how that affects Roy's own approach to parenting.

Roy's new comedy special, "No One Loves You," is on Comedy Central. And you can check out some of his best moments on The Daily Show here.
