Food Scene Scoop

I'm a loyal regular listener to this local trendy podcast to learn the latest news scoops in the always changing Pittsburgh food scene. Emily and Madeline keep it real by sharing their own dining expereinces and their own research vs. getting paid by sponsors to share thier insights on what makes Pittsburgh a great place for foodies.

My fave!

Great podcast about the Pittsburgh food scene. I learn thinks early, which is great. The hosts have good chemistry. They also talk about food trends in general. Smart, entertaining, and well researched.
