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.

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.

Politics, not food

Should be called Liberal Gravy. Very preachy podcast in the episodes I listened to. Pushed diversity with food/cooking as a background topic. Can anyone recommend a podcast on Southern food and cooking where the passion and focus is Southern food and cooking?

This used to be a great podcast. Not so much anymore.

I used to look forward to the next drop of Gravy Podcast. (Pun intended). Now every episode seems to be not about food per se but about the downtrodden and quite frankly I don’t care to listen to that. At least not every podcast. The last few months have been nothing I want to listen to.
