Bite Sized Brilliance
I’ve followed both hosts on social media and was so excited when they announced their podcast plans and have loved seeing them come to life. The variety of guests they sit down with and their casual, fun conversation style interviews and so enjoyable. Being a food lover and passionate home cook I find each episode packed with brilliance and all in the time it usually takes me to cook up a meal, so this show has become my go to kitchen companion. Thanks you two, cheers!!
I was really excited when these ladies announced they were doing a show. I love their recipes. I tried a couple of episodes and was pretty unimpressed but thought I’d give it another go today. In the beginning of the episode I loved everything they had to say about the importance of not food or diet shaming people and respecting the food decisions of others. Then the conversation instantly evolved into them food shaming one particular diet and portraying the entire diet as a moral pitfall. Could have been a great show but I’m done listening.
