Epic epicurean entertainment

I have been feasting on this podcast for several weeks now. Throughout the laughs it’s clear comedians Ed Gamble and James Acaster genuinely love food, which elicits interesting and unexpected conversational tangents with guests, despite the set format. They make the topic of food simultaneously banal, universal and profound. Expect to feel peckish after each listen. Favourite ep: Louis Theroux.

This is the funniest podcast I have ever listened to, I am absolutely sobbing laughing so hard, my dog left the room because I’m laughing so hard it scared him. 10000/10

ILoveSophie ,

The absolute best.

I have listened to Romesh’s episode probably 50 times, it is hilarious. Such a light hearted and genuinely funny pod.
