This week's episode is dedicated to our March cover story: Taco Nation, with recipes, essays, timelines, and more. Up first, contributor Rick Martinez breaks down his recipes in the magazine: duck carnitas tacos, pork volcánes al pastor, and a no-fail formula for amazing salsas. Then, associate editor Hilary Cadigan chats with Dr. Steven Alvarez, who teaches a course about "taco literacy" at St. John's University in New York. Finally, writer Manuel Gonzales reads his essay, Tacos Are My Resistance. The full package will be on bonappetit.com tomorrow.
