Point of Origin is a podcast about the world of food, worldwide, from the makers of Whetstone Magazine. Each week we travel to the countries, cultures and culinary traditions that gave birth to what we eat and drink. The in-depth conversations and field recording are augmented by new explorations of ingredients and dishes in the context of their culture of origin. In addition to taking listeners around the globe, whether it’s to Indonesia for coffee or India for turmeric, the show’s mission is also to elevate the voices of indigenous people and women of color. Point of Origin is about deepening our understanding by going to the source, as the study of food, of its past and present, teaches us who we are and how we came to be.

Thoughtful, insightful, and delightful

I am wholeheartedly enjoying Point of Origin’s approach to tracing the connections and histories of a wide array of foods and related topics. I also think Stephen Satterfield has one of the best podcasting voices I’ve ever heard: warm, mellifluous, velvety - I can listen to him for hours. So glad to have learned about this podcast!

Insightful, beautiful stories

This aptly named, brilliant series does a beautiful job of exploring not only the locale of food and bev origins and the people involved, but the point behind them / why we need to explore these origins. It’s smart, deeply compelling, and a much needed media project that shares stories from people who have historically been overlooked or left out of popular narratives. Well done, y’all.
