Food with a side of science and history. Every other week, co-hosts Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley serve up a brand new episode exploring the hidden history and surprising science behind a different food- or farming-related topic, from aquaculture to ancient feasts, from cutlery to chile peppers, and from microbes to Malbec. We interview experts, visit labs, fields, and archaeological digs, and generally have lots of fun while discovering new ways to think about and understand the world through food.

Customer Reviews

A food podcast for people who don't know much about food

If you read articles or books about food, you will be frustrated by the tone, style, and substance. If you are new to food writing, this will be interesting and have a familiar npr style.

Amazing Podcast!

This is my favorite podcast! I love the topics and learn something new every episode. I'm always sharing interesting facts with everyone and anyone willing to chat about food and science.

The perfect mix

This is my favorite kind of podcast! Hosted by people who are clearly enthusiastic about the topic, it's a fascinating and well-researched blend of history, anthropology, science, and food. It's always a good day when a new episode comes out.
