A brief note on this episode from chef and Momofuku founder Dave Chang:


"This week on the podcast, I want to open up a little about my own experiences with mental health in the hopes that we can chip away at some of the stigmas around it. I apologize if you’re a regular podcast listener and you find this to be too dark or too self-indulgent, but if it helps any of you feel a little better about seeking help for your own struggles, then it’s worth it."
