You may not recognize Linda Perry by name, but you definitely know her music. She is a singer, songwriter, and producer behind massive hits for Adele, Weezer, Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Gwen Stefani, Pink, and many more! She's also the writer/singer behind the 90s hit (and solid karaoke jam) "What's Up" by her former band 4 Non Blondes. But what would this musical maestro choose for her last meal? Spoiler alert: She's way more into music than food. Which got us thinking - is there any correlation between music and taste? To get answers, Rachel talks with Professor Charles Spence of The University of Oxford about what he calls "Sonic Seasoning," his 15 year study of how sound and music can affect the enjoyability of food, and why people drink so much tomato juice on airplanes. Linda is currently collaborating with Intuit QuickBooks new Backing You campaign to help independent artists be seen, heard and celebrated. Get Professor Spence's new book Gastrophysics: The New Science of Eating wherever books are sold. And follow Rachel's new Instagram account @yourlastmealpodcast!
