NGL talks about the D&D Finer Foods collaboration before diving into a conversation with D&D's owner Kosta Douvikas about why the Penthouse is the best sandwich at their famous deli counter (4:53), growing up running through the aisles in the store (7:17), seeing former students go on to work at companies like Tesla and Amazon when he "saw them at their worst" (10:41), how the onset of the pandemic was the "craziest two weeks" of his life (12:43), how the local community helped support them through tribulating times (16:08), and what the store is doing to make patrons feel safe when shopping while also lending an eye towards the future (20:09).
