Chicago foodie podcast

I like this show, but the audio quality is sometimes not the best which makes it hard to listen to. The tips and interviews are good, and it's helping me discover Chicago's food scene.

Music choices...

The show is mostly entertaining and insightful but often times the music is just intrusive to the general feel of the podcast. It's usually in your face and too extended between sets. Also at times the hosts can be a bit much with their strong opinions and banter. Otherwise, it's mostly enjoyable.

Creative Take on a Food Podcast

I have been listening to this podcast from its start and it is one of my favorites. Especially for a native Chicagoan, it is fun to hear when they tour and review local products. Some of the interviews they’ve had in the past are really impressive, for example Rene Redzepi was on one of the first episodes. The banter tends to be a little hit or miss, but overall Monica and Luisa are great company. Keep up the great work!
