Brilliant

Their recent series Less & Better was brilliant; carefully balanced and has helped broaden my perspective of the meat or not to meat question. Thank you :)

Really value what I learn here.

I learn so much from every episode and feel more connected to localised food systems and methods because of the podcast. Everyone that eats grains should listen to the original episodes of Cereal, including the Sept 2022 bonus episode. As a Scot I particularly appreciated the depth and bread Col Gordon shared on the Landed series and hope it will have a bonus episode one day too, showing any shifts we’ve made here in Scotland.

Landed was extraordinary

Top quality every month, but I really recommend going back to listen to the four parts of Landed. As a person of Indian heritage I thought I knew my colonial history but the way this linked The Clearances to Slavery and beyond was incredible. And with a humble host who really came up with a potential plan for the future. Wonderful. A perfect podcast.
