This Podcast Has Something for Everyone!
I highly recommend this podcast to everyone. The amount of research and analysis that goes into every episode is mind-boggling. The information is always presented in a coherent, well-organized, AND entertaining manner. It’s seriously impressive. I was afraid this would be a little too “foodie” for me, but I’ve not found that to be the case at all. Various aspects of food are obviously the main interest but every topic is presented from so many interesting and meaningful perspectives so that the information is very accessible. This particular episode had some tidbits on embalming, some myth-busting, some interesting facts about
how spices helped develop and impact economies … Mr. Majumdar’s interest in these topics is contagious and the meticulous attention to detail regarding how these topics are researched and presented is incredible. I almost feel guilty about the amount of work that must go into each episode! Thank you for such high quality work!
