From street food in Thailand to a bakery in a Syrian refugee camp to how one scientist uses uses state of the art pollen analysis to track the origins of honey (and also to solve cold murder cases), Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Radio goes anywhere and everywhere to ask questions and get answers about home cooking, food, culture, wine, farming, restaurants, literature, and the lives and cultures of the people who grow, produce, and create the food we eat.

Good conversation and information
I've been looking forward to hearing this podcast, and it did not disappoint. From learning how to properly pronounce Phở to discovering a new and better way to prepare scrambled eggs, this show was informative and the 50-plus minutes passed very quickly.
A direct copy of ATK
Yes, Chris Kimball started America's Test Kitchen, but when leaving a production it's weird to take it with you. The intro, the ads, the transitions, nearly everything is identical to the ATK podcast. It was an odd listening experience. I was really hoping for something new since I already listen to ATK.
So far so good
I feel like this is exactly like ATK Radio only with more interviews with foodies which is great. I'd love to see a more regional American stamp on this. Similar to Cooks Country.
