Pretty good.

I love listening to the history and fun facts about the foods they talk about and both Anney and Lauren have great chemistry. I'm not a big fan of the "vlogs" they've introduced to the podcast from their travels - its distracting when they interject on location bites from different interviews they did. I'd rather they just stick to the original format of FoodStuff. And yeah, a lot of their jokes don't hit the mark and they feel forced just to fill the empty air but I'm just such a fan of both ladies and honestly, would love whatever they do together!

Worth your while

Darn interesting podcast on how food plays as on going role in the world. 👍

It's ok

I like the first half of the episodes, which are more about the history of the food in question. While the hosts do a good job, they do tend to get off topic from time to time and can be frustrating at times when all you want is to hear information.
