FermUp is a weekly conversation about the art, science and history of food fermentation brought to you by two fermentation enthusiasts. We cover the what, why and DIY how-to. Learn the history and ways to ferment common food items such as sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, kefir and yogurt. We also explore cultures of fermentation from around the world. If it is fermentable and edible, we will discuss it.

Interesting topic, needs tightening
I agree with another reviewer that the male host seems very condescending (is he flirting?) to the female host.
That said, she seems to derail the conversation and both of them could tighten up their information a bit.
The topic is interesting and they seem knowledgable but it's hard to listen to.
Ah stressful! so much bickering
All of the content is lost between the constant correcting and interrupting of the other. I feel bad for them and that’s why this gets 2 stars instead of one. 😬 Sorry!
Could be better
Good idea for a podcast and good topics but not very well researched and kind of rambly
