These women are amazing!

These amazing women created a podcast that is intellectually stimulating, historically accurate, avant-garde, humerous, thought provoking, culturally rich and provides perspective on important matters on the Italian peninsula. Thank you for highlighting small Italian businesses and families!

Couldn’t get any better

This podcast is by far one of the best out there. Katie and Danielle are so insanely brilliant and knowledgeable about all things Italian food, but are also just such a joy to listen to. They come up with something interesting to learn each episode that makes me want to travel to Italy and eat all of the incredible food more and more. But whatever you do: don’t listen when hungry!
