The first podcast to cover the continuum of chocolate, The Slow Melt uses chocolate as the thick, delicious lens through which to explore the world—from flavor and physiology to chemistry and conservation, from global markets and gender to climate change, social justice and beyond—highlighting the people, places and processes behind this $100 billion industry. By better understanding chocolate, we can better appreciate it, more easily identify what we love, and support the makers and producers that create those kinds of bars.
The Slow Melt is hosted and written by journalist and author Simran Sethi. Guests include farmers, conservationists, manufacturers, tasting experts, scientists, social justice advocates, chocolate purveyors and, of course, award-winning chocolate makers.

Easy and Very informative

I’ve only listen to the first 3 episodes, but I already feel so enlightened when it comes to the complexity of cacao. Interesting guests, well written and easy to listen.

Amazing insights for chocolate lovers

A great resource for us real-chocolate enthusiasts. Good to hear these stories, especially the one where music alter our perception of flavors, as well as that we can still buy THE BEST chocolate bar in the world for ”few” dollars. Ramón - ClubChokolate.com
