Not the whole enchilada
For those that enjoy listening to the show on NPR, lament, for this is just the recipe segement, not the entire show!
Really More Like a 2 & 1/2...
Zorba dispenses health advice to callers in an engaging and accessible way, while Tom, uh, well, I've never been able to figure out why Tom is there, other than to occasionally set up Zorba with the "typical lay-person's point of view" follow up question. They have a goofy chemistry; Zorba is elfin and spry and always upbeat. Tom is a bit of a curmudgeon, but never a downer. One thing for Zorba is that he has a pretty finely tuned "B.S." detector, and they often talk about fad diets, home cures, etc. These are often the most interesting part of the show.
A Lot of Work for a Recipe
We love the Zorba Paster show in its entirety. Puzzling decision to podcast only the recipe section -- arguably the least valuable segment of the program.
