Gravy shares stories of the changing American South through the foods we eat. Gravy showcases a South that is constantly evolving, accommodating new immigrants, adopting new traditions, and lovingly maintaining old ones. It uses food as a means to explore all of that, to dig into lesser-known corners of the region, complicate stereotypes, document new dynamics, and give voice to the unsung folk who grow, cook, and serve our daily meals.

Love!

I love this podcast! It is political, but I enjoy that along with the history and food descriptions. I love hearing people’s stories and it is quite enlightening.

This used to be a great podcast. Not so much anymore.

I used to look forward to the next drop of Gravy Podcast. (Pun intended). Now every episode seems to be not about food per se but about the downtrodden and quite frankly I don’t care to listen to that. At least not every podcast. The last few months have been nothing I want to listen to.

I came back because it started being about food again. Then we went to prisons and sexual harassment and tipping. This podcast is not worth the time I invest. I had considered donating but why would I when the product they put out continues to be not what they advertise. Southern Cooking. It has gotten worse since the new hosts (about two years now) took over. I wish I could give it a lower grade then one star. I listen to the old shows and pick through the morass that is the new ones.

Yum!

John T. and Melissa are much better hosts than the earlier ones. Love the podcast! Would be ok to sometimes focus on more traditional southern food traditions rather than always new readings.
