A Passion for Food and History

A passionate look at food and history with a fun twist. Every episode sends me on a romantic vicariously felt culinary experience. Well done ladies, your passion is felt.. John

A Disappearing Podcast

It used to be that Gola provided some unusual insights into things related to the Italian table and wines. And I used to be a supporter. But then a couple years ago, for some unknown reason, the podcasts became fewer— much farer between.
As I type this, it is mid-January 2024, but the most recent entry in their website is Feb. 2, 2022, almost two years ago.
Granted, there were exactly seven (7) podcasts in the calendar year 2023, hardly what I would call semi-monthly.
If the podcast is finished, say so. If not, how about some regularity?

Wow!

I was looking forward to intelligent, thoughtful and stimulating exchanges. Instead, I feel as if I’ve eavesdropped on a sorority sleepover.

These girl/women may well possess the knowledge and worldly intellect to command their chosen topic, but their goofy, playful, childlike speech patterns (insert the annoying “upspeak”) dilute what could become an informative, entertaining and compelling podcast.

Bless your hearts.
