Gravy shares stories of the changing American South through the foods we eat. Gravy showcases a South that is constantly evolving, accommodating new immigrants, adopting new traditions, and lovingly maintaining old ones. It uses food as a means to explore all of that, to dig into lesser-known corners of the region, complicate stereotypes, document new dynamics, and give voice to the unsung folk who grow, cook, and serve our daily meals.

Love!

I love this podcast! It is political, but I enjoy that along with the history and food descriptions. I love hearing people’s stories and it is quite enlightening.

These episodes stick with you

This is one of the few podcasts where I listen to the episodes more than once. I trap my family in the car so that they listen to the deep and varied stories from across the south. It reminds me often of the depth of reporting I find in Texas Monthly.

Just the take I was looking for.

I came across this podcast in the past month or so, just before I move back to the South after four years spent in Chicago. I wanted something that explored some of the social and political and religious and cultural issues of the South, and how perfect that it’s centered around food, as food is one of the things I love most about the South. I also love that it is produced by Southerners, and isn’t some effort by those outside to try and understand us, like we’re some sort of case study. I’d recommend this to anyone!
