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.

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.

These episodes stick with you

This is one of the few podcasts where I listen to the episodes more than once. I trap my family in the car so that they listen to the deep and varied stories from across the south. It reminds me often of the depth of reporting I find in Texas Monthly.
