Fascinating podcast

All the interviews are so great and give great insight into the restaurant industry. I visited your website after listening to your plea for subscriber help. Hope more people can find the site.

You’re Enough

You are too hard on yourself. Dear Andrew, you are where you are because of the fabulous insight and natural ability to coax out of your guests the stories of struggle and triumph in an unrelenting industry. Your engagement to your listeners and the thoughtfulness you put into your interviews is obvious the moment you start your introduction, whether solo or with Katelyn (sorry dear if I spelled that wrong) or some other extraordinary friend. The setting, the content, the intent are perfectly clear with each guests, so much so I have heard many of the casts more than once. It has to be said, I missed you during your extended hiatus late summer/early fall 2019. Thank you for presenting your podcasts to not only the “civilians” but to Chef’s like me who want to hear the stories of those who are right there beside me, in our non skid shoes, taking one step at a time on the line.

One of the best podcast!

I am so excited to finally be writing this review, I wanted to wait until I caught up on the entire series. I first found this podcast through the Tim Hollingsworth episode. I was looking for interviews with Chef Hollingsworth after viewing the Netflix series, The Final Table. Instead of just listening to that episode I started with episode 1 back in December of 2019 and just finished with the latest episode shortly before writing this review. Andrew does a great job at engaging his guests on food, the industry and culture. Since starting this journey I have been encouraged and my perspective about the industry has completely changed. I would completely recommend anybody that decides to go on this journey to pick up a copy of Knives at Dawn and Chefs, Drugs and Rock and Roll. Thank you so much, Andrew, for all the hard work you are doing through this podcast, it has become this civilians favorite podcast to listen to throughout the week.
