We tell the weird and surprising and funny backstories around food and drink. The tales we haven’t all heard yet, the ones that have been lost, the under-told. This is not a recipe show. And this is not a show about celebrity chefs or what they like to eat. Proof goes beyond recipes and cooking to investigate the foods we love (tiki drinks) and don't love (the grain bowl); ask the big questions (where do food cravings come from?); and uncover the hidden backstories that feed your food-obsessed brain. Hosted by Bridget Lancaster. A production of America's Test Kitchen.

Great podcast with excellent journalism.

I have listened to every episode of Proof. Some are better than others but all are interesting. I have recommended to so many friends that are regular podcasters looking for new podcasts to listen to. Love it, keep them coming. I also love Bridget and would watch or listen to her talk about anything!!!💕

The Walk In is a let down!

I’m not sure why ATK and Proof started up this spinoff podcast called The Walk In. I was hoping for a great insight into southern, regional and black cooks and all, but one of the first episodes was about some black cook who caters to sex workers! Really ATK? You feel the need to back a program like that?
Diversity is one thing, but stick to your core values as you’ve always done before!

Queer Food!

I can’t tell you how much I loved this episode. It was such a feel good, beginning to end kind of journey, and I am so happy it exists! Thank you to Chad and all the producers for putting out such great content. Will recommend to everyone!
