Don’t ever change

I absolutely love this show. It is such a funny addition to my week and I love everything they cover from the personal food news to the taste tests it’s all gold. Don’t ever change but if you do just continue to make more episodes

Food news for the everyday person

Juliet and Jacoby are the best combination and Food News is the best kind of pod for a food lover who isn’t against going to sample some fast food. If you believe America runs on Dunkin listen to Food news on The Ringer- Who knew I would love 30 minutes of food discussion every week 🤌 Also- there could be a drinking game to go with how many times Jacoby learns something new about Juliet. About 3x on average per week. Hilarious

Almost 5 stars

I love almost everything about this podcast. The banter, the fun stories, JACOBY in total and Juliet in general but her voice is beyond irritating. Juliet please stop doing that thing where you gasp so loudly into the microphone as you’re laughing / before you start your next sentence. It kills me every time
