It is through food that we explore the human condition. Asking questions such as, "Why does milk have its own food group?" "Who suffers when I buy organic bananas?" and "How could better food transform our prison system?" If you want to be an ethical food consumer but don't know where to start, this show is for you!

Customer Reviews

brilliant, fascinating dissection of what food means to us

As the curator of the health and medicine TED conference, TEDMED, I’m always looking for intelligent analysis and historic understanding of elements of our health. The Secret Ingredient not only does this beautifully, but it also weaves in politics, economics, gender relations, psychology, sociology, and culture. It’s 3 on 1 interviewing style comes from an old BBC show and works perfectly. The 3 interviewers play well off each other and have distinct, complementary perspectives. As an avid podcast listener of interview shows, compelling narrative, and geeky topics, this one feeds me on all levels.

Informative, thoughtful, inspiring

... and Raj Patel is so dreamy.

So informative and clever but the audio engineering is atrocious

I do love this idea behind this podcast and was super excited because I love the Two Guys on Your Head segments on KUT by the same producer. Raj Patel is a very fun contributor, but I had to unsubscribe because I just couldn't handle another episode where I had to change the volume on the radio a half dozen times. A big feature of most episodes is a super-lengthy and arduous phone interview with an expert, it is often so crackly or quiet as to be basically unintelligible. It's awfully damning, but I think the best episodes are their live ones at CactusCafe or SXSW. Really wanted to like it, but it's just no fun to listen to, especially anywhere that has even the slightest ambient noise.
