Love this podcast

Love this podcast so much! It’s my favorite to listen to while making dinner. This podcast has interesting guests and always has me laugh long all the way through. Makes me wonder what I would choose for my dream menu. Keep it up James and Ed and come do live shows your in the USA!
PS I visited London in June 2024 and ate at Afghan Kitchen per Lily Allen’s episode- it felt like a very circle moment as a fan and the food was incredible. ❤️

I’m late to the party, but this is amazing!

As a Southerner, listening to James, Ed, and Noah describe a cobbler is hilariously amazing!!
