Customer Reviews

Surprisingly awesome

Awesome show with great insights and stories. Usually I am distracted/annoyed by British accents, but this show host is surprisingly tolerable.

Interesting & Informative

This podcast is the only food-related show that focuses on the business, technology, and culture of food. This unique perspective has been very enlightening. I want to know where my food comes from and how it is processed and this show has answered many of those questions and more. I also appreciate the cultural significance of food that is discussed on this show. Give it a listen!

I would love to give this podcast 5 stars...but

Superb podcast as far as content, reporting, attitude, and topics.
Why did I take one star away?
Because the music can be intrusive and jarring at times.

I will keep listening, but I find this in many "over-produced" podcasts: the music is too noticeable. It's not the main feature of the podcast; nor, is it what people are generally coming to the podcast to hear. I believe most uf us are there for the content and intellectual fodder.
