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


Stoked to have a version of edible geography I can listen to on my commute.

Smart, fun, and important

Smart, funny and fresh take on important topics. I also enjoy the length: short enough to fit my commute, but long enough to cover more topics in more depth. Eager for more!

Has potential but banter is stilted

Based on the first episode, this podcast has a lot of potential, but the hosts need a little more polish. The topics covered in the first episode were very interesting but the hosts banter in-between the stories was stilted and sounded unnatural (it often sounded like they were reading not really talking). I suspect that as they produce more episodes things will get more polished, so I look forward to hearing more.
