Food with a side of science and history. Every other week, co-hosts Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley serve up a brand new episode exploring the hidden history and surprising science behind a different food- or farming-related topic, from aquaculture to ancient feasts, from cutlery to chile peppers, and from microbes to Malbec. We interview experts, visit labs, fields, and archaeological digs, and generally have lots of fun while discovering new ways to think about and understand the world through food.

Jasper Gioia ,

The best food podcast

I think this is the most informative food podcast on the planet. Listen often!

Gastropod is SUPER ... BUT

GREAT information but the talk/delivery style of the hosts is so silly. Ladies, you’re doing a real disservice to other female journalists/reports/researchers. Please, develop a more professional delivery style.

You are wonderful!

Thank you for a witty, insightful, fascinating show. Even if I don’t care much about the show titles; I listen to all.
Beware! This show is funny, educational and addictive .
