Beverly’s own Joe Flamm, Top Chef season 15 champion, joined us on this week’s episode. Obviously this was an atypical interview for us, but it didn’t make the interview any less awesome. He was one of the most candid interviews we’ve had thus far. Dude bleeds Chicago and better yet bleeds White Sox baseball. Here’s a clip of the email chain we had when we were setting the interview up:
My kinda guy!! South sider through and through. Delusional, but hates the Cubs almost as much as he loves the Sox. Oh, and he also gutted himself while gutting a pig:
I mentioned he bleeds south side tough guy right? Before his Top Chef fame, the guy would take the 95th street Red Line stop to the loop to work for $90/12 hour shift. He obviously saw all sorts of shit in doing so and lived to tell the stories on Red Line Radio.
