Description of the podcast: The host is a young woman who’s still a university student, she has a Hangzhou accent (from Zhejiang Province, in southern China). Each time the podcast starts with the same prologue, “Delicacies and Adonis are the eternal pursuit in life’s journey…”, which interestingly introduces her hobby. The title literally means “How can you have the strength to behave like a hooligan if you don’t eat well”, the “耍流氓” part means behave like a hooligan, but actually here it just means play around, fool around. The podcaster always speaks in a slow speed and has clear pronunciation, which is suitable for intermediate and advanced Chinese learners to learn Chinese. Sometimes the host will also invite other women as guests to have exchanges and discussions on delicious cuisine. The podcaster talks about food in many detailed ways, like its shape, taste, colour, etc.
