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.

Me and my boyfriend listen to this podcast on every long road trip we have!! Every episode is great and super informative while also being interesting. Who knew food could be so historical.

Great learning!

Every topic is so well thought out, and the camaraderie between the hosts is so pleasant.

Topics are interesting but voices droves me batty

Couldn’t focus on the words because I’d just get overwhelmed by the affected way both ladies speak, the inflections, and accent.
