Now I Must Find Cheesecake

I just listened to the episode, Eli’s. What a wonderful show on the history of food. I live in Dallas, and now I must find an Eli’s Cheesecake...I can’t stop thinking about it.

Wonderful Podcast

I just listened to the episode kosherfest. It was such a uniquely produced show and really illustrated the environment of the event. I felt like I was really there! Great interviews by the host.
