Gorgeous Marjie and her lovely voice

Oh my goodness, five stars all round. I’ve just started listening to podcasts, and have spent all summer lying on the beach in Spain listening to DID! I haven’t picked up my kindle once! Marjie’ s beautiful speaking voice, warm and insightful questioning, meticulous research - oft commented on by her guests - and all round loveliness have made it an absolute pleasure every time I plug myself into my headphone. As sweet and satisfying as hot buttered toast dripping with honey, I just adore this podcast and was saddened it didn’t make the Times 100 best podcast list last week - Marjie’s guest list is enviable and impressive and it is a ridiculous omission from the list. My husband and four daughters love it too! Xxx

Perfect for a foodie!

I love this podcast and listen to whilst I’m running! On a longer run I can get through two or more episodes and it combats the boredom of running on your own. Whilst I’m running it gives me great inspiration of dishes to cook and things to eat when I get home!

Foodie fun!

Discovered this podcast a few months ago and it’s so great! Perfect length for my bus journey to work. Love getting an insight into top chefs and food writers personal lives and inspirations and food and recipe tips. Stanley Tucci was a personal fave- he’s such a passionate cook of pasta and I didn’t even know he lived in London and was married to Emily Blunts sister :)
