Globetrotting journalist Clarissa Wei returns to the KollabCast after a year of tracing her roots and covering food, permaculture, and environmentalism across the world. Clarissa shares about her adventure discovering her indigenous roots in Taiwan, as well as stories of online dating in Taipei. We also catch up on the latest awards season news and chat about why Clarissa thinks we need to stop using the word "authenticity," in describing food.

This week’s intro & outro music is “Crazy Rich Asian (ft. Bea Go)” off the album "Escape from LA" by Kollab Alum & Rapper Dan AKA Dan
