Listen: An Award-Winning Duo: Susan Feniger & Mary Sue Milliken

This week we have an intimate conversation with Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken. The close friends and partners are the winners of the 2018 Julia Child Award from the Julia Child Foundation. The duo has worked together for nearly 40 years, creating restaurants, making ground-breaking television shows, writing books, mentoring, and working as community activists. Paula Johnson, curator of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, tells us what it is like to select the items that go into the museum’s permanent collection. And Lisa McManus, the gadget and gear tester for America’s Test Kitchen, gives us details on just how much of a gadget geek her hero Julia Child actually was.
