Tune in to hear Malcolm recall stories of chasing down Mr. Softee trucks, and the taste of his father's cookies. Hear about the inspiration for his desserts at wd~50, and what tunes he listens to in the kitchen. Learn about Malcolm's collaborative project in the Bronx called Ghetto Gastro, and what it means to locals. Later, Nicole calls up Darius Wilmore of Taharka Brothers in Baltimore, MD. Hear about the conception of the Bawlmer ice cream company, and how they aim to uplift young black men in the city.
