Disssappointed ,

This is a REALLY good podcast...

High praise from me, i'm tough on podcasts. These two gals are very different and equally as engaging. Episodes are made even more enjoyable by Katie's tough NJ girl (and very authentic) vibe. She takes on some less than admirable Italian topics (sometimes not such great food, mob influence and her dislike of Aperol) and doesn't hold back. Run, don't walk if you want a real take on Italy, it's glories and it's everyday.

It’s great!

I really do like this podcast and always look forward to new episodes. The topics are always interesting to me and I can tell the hosts like each other very much. In the early episodes Danielle is a bit hard to listen to sometimes due to some vocal tics - many “ahhh” and “uhhhhh”s and her tendency to interrupt herself. It seems to have gotten better in the more recent episodes, though, along with the sound quality!

Great

If you have even a cursory interest in Italian food, culture or history, this is for you. Katie and Danielle both have an academic knowledge of the subjects, but present them in accessible language without dumbing it down. Have pasta and wine on standby.
