Secret Ingredient

Amazingly insightful and innovative podcast pulling power gender political economy and food all into one. Just a shame there are not more !

... and Raj Patel is so dreamy.

So informative and clever but the audio engineering is atrocious

I do love this idea behind this podcast and was super excited because I love the Two Guys on Your Head segments on KUT by the same producer. Raj Patel is a very fun contributor, but I had to unsubscribe because I just couldn't handle another episode where I had to change the volume on the radio a half dozen times. A big feature of most episodes is a super-lengthy and arduous phone interview with an expert, it is often so crackly or quiet as to be basically unintelligible. It's awfully damning, but I think the best episodes are their live ones at CactusCafe or SXSW. Really wanted to like it, but it's just no fun to listen to, especially anywhere that has even the slightest ambient noise.
