Welcome to Jim + Carmel's TV + Dinner, a new podcast from Jim DeRogatis and Carmel Carrillo!

As the co-host of Public Radio's rock 'n' roll talk show Sound Opinions  and a journalist and critic for WBEZ Chicago Public Radio, Jim DeRogatis is well known for voicing his opinions -- but those almost always are about music. A much quieter and kinder person overall, his wife Carmel Carrillo edits the Dining section and television stories for The Chicago Tribune, but she has plenty of opinions, too. On Jim + Carmel's TV + Dinnerthey'll talk about two of their favorite things: television and the dining scene, both in Chicago and farther afield.

In this debut episode, the duo tackles HBO's True Detective and Fox's The Following; they wrap up Season 11 of Bravo's Top Chef, and they talk about recent meals at Chicago's Karyn’s on Green (130 S. Green St.), Fiorentino’s (2901 N. Ashland Ave.), and the Bedford (1612 W. Division St.).

Grab the remote and a snack and enjoy!
