Fun and Profound: best since Anthony Bourdain
10 March 2019 | by paulelisiegelSee all my reviews

Kal Penn goes where Bourdain went with his own hunor spin. Bourdain did global culture and food. Penn does global factoids and humor.

Great combination and wonderfully balanced. He will take it to the extreme to get your attention and make a point: when talking about the funeral business he humorously shocks you with an interview with an (undercover) hit man; and, when talking about money he starts with people who dropped off the grid to live without it.

I hope this cotinues and goes bigger still, as did Bourdain.
