Elle Simone Scott is stellar

It’s clear her background on social work makes her an outstanding and natural interviewer. Hearing an already amazing person teach me names in food world is why I keep coming back for more episodes.

Food and the soul

Excellent, not only speaks about food but, the persons experiences, their life, their journey.
Very insightful.

Phenomenal interviews and memorable guests!

I have really enjoyed each interview Elle has hosted and produced since the launch of The Walk-In podcast. The stories are a glimpse into many talented food culinarians and food historians in the industry. My favorite podcast to date is with Dr. Jessica B. Harris because she has such a wealth of information about food stories about some of the most important figures in African American culture. I can’t wait to listen to more episodes!
