Description

Two seasons after its investigation of the decline of McDonalds french fries, Revisionist History returns to fast-food’s high-tech test kitchens. This time the subject is cultural appropriation. The case study is Taco Bell. Oh, and Pat Boone is involved.

To Malcolm and Team, I'd be interested to hear a podcast on the appropriation of calypso from Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaican folklore songs by American artists such as Harry Belafonte and the Andrew sisters post WW II.

I love Mexican food AND Taco Bell. I lived in Mexico, am married to a Mexican woman, and love real, authentic Mexican food. Yet, I still love Taco Bell because it is not trying to be real Mexican food. FYI, my son's Abuela actually likes Taco Bell too. LOVED this episode about cultural stealing v riffing.

Richard Dvorak There's room for both. No one in their right mind thinks Taco Bell is "REAL MEXICAN FOOD." If you live in any major city in the US, you can get authentic Mexican food. But Taco Bell is just a fun riff. Even if it has a darker, naturally exploitative, origin story. Taco Bell has done well because they've embraced their ridiculousness and Americaness. As usual, RH does a good job at being nuanced in this age of extremism and polarization.
