Listening to this is good for your stomach! :)

This podcast celebrates the intersection of food and technology. Tech Bites, hosted by award-winning writer Jennifer Leuzzi, is the perfect companion for anytime listening. New listeners will find themselves subscribers within the first episode with of the caliber of guests, smart, relevant topics, and the witty banter of the host.

Tech Bites covers a cornucopia of subjects: Curious about your food waste? Episode 153 discusses upcycling food waste, how to do it, and interviews an expert on the subject. Are you interested in the latest food trend? Check out episode 127 on seaweed - hint: it’s not just for sushi anymore.

In addition, another fun part of each episode is a discussion on apps (no, not THAT kind), where guests go around the table and talk about one app that lives on their screen. Not once have I walked away without downloading a new app!
