Prime comfort listening

I miss Lynne but Francis Lim has a soothing voice (like Lynne) and has an infectious, gentle glee for the subjects. I like to listen to this before bed.

Always a Favorite - So Comforting and Enlightening

I absolutely LOVE The Splendid Table. As a super fan of Lynne Rossetto Kasper, I was not sure how I would respond to a new host. Francis Lam is an incredible host - he is intelligent, hilarious, calming and a joy to listen to. Thank you for this brilliant show.

Record New Episodes

I really like this podcast, but there’s too many reruns. It feels like they don’t care enough to make new content.
