It might seem impossible to believe that we have a lot in common with a peasant toiling in a medieval field at the turn of the second millennium, or a Venetian pirate as plague rampages through your city’s canals, or a young girl on trial for witchcraft, or a chef who cooked for princes and kings. But here’s the thing, everyone has to eat, and that primal need has been one of the major forces in world history since we gathered around the promethean fire. That’s what we’re exploring in this season’s podcast - how food has shaped who we have become. Super casual, right? One thousand years of history, explored plate first.

Best history podcast + FOOD
Claire's voice is enough to make me happily listen to anything she says, and the topic she has chosen to share is the icing on the cake! I have learned SO MUCH from this series already. I never would have guessed that food history could add such great context to world history. The sound mixing is done beautifully too!
I listen to a lot of podcasts, but none are so insightful and well researched as this one! Also the music is great!
A podcast no one could hate!
Even if you're not a foodie or history buff you will LOVE this podcast! Food has a way of interconnecting people and time. Everyone has to eat and everyone has an emotional connection to what they eat. Claire Thomas is gifted in storytelling and makes this podcast an escape to another world in every episode. You won't even realize that you've also learned something. I can't say enough how wonderfully done this podcast is in every way!
