Ahead of a new series on race, culture, and food, we're repeating "Other People's Food." For Artist Ashok Kondabolu and comedian Michelle Buteau, cultural appropriation and assimilation are personal.

Artist Ashok Kondabolu and comedian Michelle Buteau grew up in immigrant families, straddling food cultures. But they have different opinions on the line between assimilation and appropriation.

Dan and Dap (aka Ashok Kondabolu) of Chillin' Island take to the streets of New York to find out whether some foods are offensive.

Listen to a sneak preview of our upcoming special series, "Other People's Food."
