A true podcast gem

While Simon may put on a tough exterior on Food Network, he is not only personable in the flesh but also conveys his kind persona via this podcast. This is my go-to relaxation podcast after a long day in the company of a fine spirit or wine. I put in my AirPods and proceed to let Simon’s wisdom flow…

If you enjoy history and/or cooking, I promise that you shall not be disappointed.

Thank you Simon for doing this podcast and I thoroughly appreciate and anticipate future episodes!
