Rather have the interviews and stories. (updated 11/14)
In case you aren't familiar, The Splendid Table is broken into two parts: the first half being interviews, stories and profiles made by true professionals in the food and beverage industry. It's the best! The second half is "joe and jane public" calling in and talking to Lynne about mystery ingredients and recipes. This is fine, but it's the part of Lynne's show when I usually begin cooking and pay loose attention to what's being said. However, I would not miss the first half if you tried to drag me away. When will we see the podcast of this first, far better, half of the show? (updated 11/14 - The entire show is now being podcast here and it is truly great. Thanks Lynne! No other food/wine/beer/etc podcast compares.)
Don't you love Public Radio?
I personally am the son of the producer of the Splendid Table and have the honor of eating with Lynne every Thanksgiving. (Right after they finish the Thanksgiving brodcast.) Every foodie out there has to listen to this podcast. Show some support for Lyyne.
Finally! The full show!
I'm thrilled they're opted to have the entire show on iTunes- it's one of my favorite programs, but my newest work schedule had made listening at the broadcast times impossible. Good advice, interesting guests, and a lot of foodie chatter.
