Best Podcast

I enjoy Mark Bittman‘s podcast program during the night because I have insomnia and I need things interesting yet cheerful to listen to.

Super Great :)

Light enough to enjoy, heavy enough to think. Practical food tips at the start and end. Really well done. Mark is a great story teller. Guests offer further exploration in foods. A top 5 in my food-casts. ****

What happened to this podcast?

Mark was never a killer interviewer, but at least his show used to be listenable and occasionally enjoyable/informative. These new episodes in 2022 are markedly worse. Meandering interviews, fewer recipes, and the episodes just seem sloppy now. What happened?
