    It’s Dead

    It’s Dead

    It’s been almost three months since the turmoil at Bon Appétit erupted. But amid calls to address marginalization, tokenization, and pay inequity at BA, has any real change been made?
    In this episode, we recap what’s been going on inside Bon Appétit, Conde Nast, and the Test Kitchen since June. Plus, with Bon Appétit videos slated to return in September, we discuss whether we’ll be tuning in.
    What does all this mean for Pod Appétit? Listen to hear some exciting announcements—you won’t want to miss it!
    (Recorded August 23, 2020)
    UPDATE August 27, 2020: Dawn Davis was announced as Bon Appétit’s new editor-in-chief.

    #Sohladarity

    On June 8, 2020, a damning photo of Adam Rapoport in brownface emerged, but Rapoport stepping down as Bon Appétit’s Editor in Chief was only the beginning. In the following days, Sohla El-Waylly, Priya Krishna, Rick Martinez, and many more current and former BIPOC staff blew the lid off inequity and racial discrimination run rampant at Bon Appétit and Condé Nast.
    In this episode, we recap this past week’s events in detail, including the whirlwind of statements, apologies, exposés, social media posts, and fan reactions that resulted. Plus we ask ourselves: What does this mean for the future of BA, and for the future of Pod Appétit?

Come to hear these four pals talk about food, stay for their #sohladarity

I love(d?) the Bon Appétit YouTube series, and hearing these enthusiastic fans talk about the Test Kitchen is such fun that it’s my go-to for listening-while-cooking for months.

But their Twitter over the weeks of the fallout about BA’s racism problem is what cemented my love for Pod Appétit. Sharing important information, even when critical, calling for real change — it’s a really refreshing change to fan culture.

Whatever happens at Bon Appétit the brand and the cinematic universe, I hope this podcast continues in some form.

New favorite podcast

I love this podcast and I have a suggestion. Maybe you could switch it up and read some bon appetit fan fiction because trust me there is a lot.

Pod Best Friends

Really and truly, I feel like these peeps are my best podcast friends. Being able to nerd out over Bon Appetite every week with someone other than my husband has been a godsend. I can't explain how excited I was when I discovered this podcast. It's funny, sweet, and informative. I especially love their recaps since I don't always have the time to watch all of the video Bon Appetite put out in a week. Give this podcast a listen and make sure you subscribe. It's a gem!
