Great industry chat

I’m constantly looking for podcasts that understand chef life, this has been a great find.

Andrew talks too much

This has the potential of being a great podcast except for the fact that Andrew, the host, talks too much, both in the introduction and with guests. I hope he can find a way to learn from Terry Gross, the interview master, who seems more confident. She takes a step back and lets her guests do the talking. This gives space for the listeners to develop their own relationship with the ideas, topics and personalities.
