On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek revisits his conversation with cakemaker Emily Nejad.  Her Bon Vivant Cakes business is booming because of her fantastical approach to baking. The Dueling Critics, Kelly Kleiman and Jonathan Abarbanel, stop by to review the Chicago premiere of THE HARVEST. Plus, Gary talks about Windy City Playhouse's immersive production, SOUTHERN GOTHIC. A little later, Gary chats with Chicago-based theater artist Mia Park about the upcoming Asian-American Theater Conference and Festival. Gary talks to L.A. Times writer Amy Kaufman about her new book, BACHELOR NATION. All that, and a review of the new indie film EIGHTH GRADE.
