    In a world of deepening divisions and painful fractures, the last thing we need is to be spending hours waiting in line for overpriced eggs just to share a meal with our friends. Public radio hosts Brandan Francis Newnam and Rico Gagliano share their secret to a social revolution: dinner parties. Loaded with wit, celebrity advice, and tongue-in-cheek humor—plus sincere insights about how humans can be more generous to each other, Brunch Is Hell is a spirited guide to restoring the art of throwing a dinner party.

    Brendan Francis Newnam and Rico Gagliano are the creators, hosts, and producers of The Dinner Party Download, a public radio show and podcast about culture and food named the "Best Food Podcast" from the Academy of Podcasters. They were named two of Food & Wine's "Forty Big Food Thinkers Forty and Under," and have appeared as judges on Top Chef Masters. They each write food, design, and travel articles for national print outlets.
