Loving It ... From PHX

I had this podcast in the queue for a while, and am now devouring episodes like carne asada tacos. There's an almost NPR-like quality to this, which is refreshing while you're sitting in Phoenix traffic, which I know, doesn't even compare to the LA variety, but still... I now have my taco hitlist for my next trip to CA thanks to Rob & Tacocity. Nice work!

Disclaimer: Will Make You Crave Tacos

Tacocity is much more than a taco podcast . It is a narrative bout the people behind the tacos . If you are a taco lover this is the podcast for you . It sheds more light on the stories behind those tasty tortillas , that fiery salsas you go home and dream bout . This is a podcast for those who not only love the taco but are appreciative of the hands that make them .

Taco-bout Wonderful!

As a self-proclaimed taco romantic, I have my own personal affection for tacos and the background stories that make them taste all that much more 'sabroso'. One night, out of complete wonderment, I wanted to see if I could find something out there that I could listent to, instead of read, pertaining to tacos. I thought it was silly of me to even think to search for a podcast about tacos. But long and behold, there was TacoCity. Serendipty really.

I was overwhelmed with anxiousness to listen to the podcast, as I didn't know what to expect. But all it took was one listen. Tacocity is a meaningful story-teller of truths, of hard-working people and loyalty to the most complex and simplistic world, of tacos. Imagine a taco where someone made it with passion. Imagine the ingredients prepared with soul. A dash of heart, a dash of loyalty, a dash of respect. That taco sounds amazing, right? That's what Tacocity is. It honors the taco no differently than many hostorical items in the world.

Every episode is a journey. Every episode tells a story. And every episode will make you hungry! Stay and listen for the love, eat because you love, Tacos!
