Episode 1: Waldo Thai 

For our first episode, we sat down with Pam Liberda and Darrell Loo at Waldo Thai. Pam is cooking up traditional Northern Thai eats in a funky little strip mall location in Waldo. And Darrell, who you’ll find behind the bar, is slinging signature cocktails featuring ingredients inspired by Pam’s dishes. Both Pam and Darrell gave up their steady career paths to bring Kansas City a unique perspective on Thai food, featuring cuisine from a region that is often overlooked by Americans. Get ready to open your mind, fill your belly—and maybe pack some Tums, because Pam’s bringing the heat in her mouth-watering dishes.

If I don’t love myself—if I can’t look at myself and say ‘this is who I am’—then I can never make other people believe in me either.
