    City Arts & Lectures David Simon and David Chang David Simon is a journalist, author, and the creator of the television shows "The Wire," "Homicide," and "Treme." As a crime reporter at The Baltimore Sun, Simon authored countless articles and two books, "Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets" and "The Corner: A Year in the Life of an Inner-City Neighborhood." "The Wire," which aired for five seasons on HBO, made Simon a pop culture icon. The show presents a dystopic vision of an American city, Baltimore, through a portrait of its most endemic problems: gangs, drugs, broken education and political systems, and a corrupt and incompetent news media. David Chang is the executive chef and owner of five restaurants, including Momofuku Noodle Bar, Momofuku Ssam Bar, Momofuku Ko, Milk Bar, and Ma Peche, and Momofuku Seiobo. A three-time James Beard Foundation winner, Chang has two Michelin stars and numerous accolades including GQ's "Man of the Year." But it's a devoted following that encompasses serious eaters - many of them chefs themselves - smitten critics, and celebrities that makes the restaurants phenomenally successful and the chef himself a celebrity in the culinary world. They appeared in conversation with KQED's Michael Krasny on May 30, 2013.
