As a fellow writer (honorary wine person and restaurant industry embed too) and American enthusiast of all things Italian since a Florentine study abroad in 2002 and multiple visits thereafter, this podcast makes me as happy as it does run on sentence. I’ve shared Katie’s newest book with friends and the former with family and this podcast is just another layer perhaps my favorite of bringing the culture and pleasures of the specificity of it into my mind’s full eye of one of my most favorite places and feelings on earth. Rock on ladies and please don't ever stop honoring the essence of what it means to be Italian that you so exquisitely embody. We feel you and are listening... and learning!

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!
