I spent about a little less than two hours today with MSN critic, Toronto Star contributor and The Lunch podcaster James Rocchi. An hour at Genghis Cohen (pork dumplings, green beans) and then…oh, 45 minutes or so recording a discussion at a really noisy outdoor cafe across the street, on the west side of Fairfax just north of Willoughby. It was like recording next to the Santa Monica Freeway — fire trucks, cement trucks, loud motorcycles, cars without mufflers. The podcast will be up sometime next Tuesday.

James Rocchi’s $270 dollar recording device.
