    Introducing: Ephemeral Season 2

    Introducing: Ephemeral Season 2

    Hey, Savor fans!
    We know you already love great podcasts, so here's another we think you'll enjoy - Ephemeral season 2. Check out the trailer and see for yourself.
    About Ephemeral: The best source on our cultural identity is not the official, historical record — ask any anthropologist, it’s the town dump. Ephemera — those things that were just barely saved, and in some cases not saved at all — emanate with secrets we can only glimpse and mysteries we can never completely answer. The stories may be unfamiliar, but the themes are universal; this is a looking glass, a window into our own fragile, material existence that begs the question, “How will I be remembered?”

Solid, but slowly declining

A solid podcast about food and culinary history. However Lauren‘s political ideology has been slowly creeping into the podcast more and more ever since 2019. People came for info about food, not politics.

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!

There’s no N in Restaurateur

Seems to be favouring quantity over quality these days, but still generally decent for a bit of food trivia.
