Food with a side of science and history. Every other week, co-hosts Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley serve up a brand new episode exploring the hidden history and surprising science behind a different food- or farming-related topic, from aquaculture to ancient feasts, from cutlery to chile peppers, and from microbes to Malbec. We interview experts, visit labs, fields, and archaeological digs, and generally have lots of fun while discovering new ways to think about and understand the world through food.

BJCRI ,

Love this podcast!

If you’re even slightly interested in food you absolutely must start listening to this podcast. The hosts are interesting, intelligent, and each episode is meticulously researched but presented in a very entertaining and accessible way. I also appreciate the absence of annoying background music playing over people speaking that I’ve run across in other podcasts.
