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.

My new favorite podcast.

My wife clued me into this one a few weeks ago, and I'm working my way through the back catalog. It's a funny, informative mix of science, history, and food culture.

Delicious!

This is my favorite podcast. Well researched, artfully crafted stories and a couple of delightful senses of humor.
There are two things I get every other week- a paycheck and a Gastropod episode, and I’m much more excited for the episode! (I know where my paycheck is going to go, but Gastropod takes me somewhere new every time.)
