We take America's Test Kitchen's inquisitive and relentless approach to telling unexpected, funny, and thought-provoking narratives about food and drink. This is not a recipe show. And this is not a show about celebrity chefs or what they like to eat. Proof plunges into history, culture, science, and the psyche to uncover the hidden backstories that feed your food-obsessed brain. Hosted by Kevin Pang. A production of America's Test Kitchen.

Listening to your podcasts is so uplifting and positive. Truly inspiring and beautifully delivered.. Thank you 🙏
Go back to the original style of the podcast
I thought it was just me but after reading the reviews it seems I’m not alone in dislike of the recent format where people are reading their essays….and reading them in a robot monotone.
ATK usually does everything in a top notch way so the quality of this podcast is surprising.
Sometimes I can get past the monotone if the content is interesting, but sometimes I just turn it off.
I used to love listening when it first started with Bridget doing the narrative. Would love if Kevin could take this up again.
