From working on nuclear policy at the White House and operating her famous specialty food store Barefoot Contessa, to penning best-selling books and hosting hit TV shows – Ina has done it all.

This is bull•••t ,

Just one annoyance:

Julia refers to her guests as ladies. That’s cringey. What always comes to mind is when Jackie Kennedy refused to be called First Lady. She said it made her sound like a race horse. I agree. We’re women not ladies. But it’s a wonderful, enlightening podcast.
Thank you!

Love it!!!

I really love the interviews. Can we get an episode where Julia answers the questions she asks guests

Historyay ,

One suggestion

How about inviting Bonnie Garmus on the podcast?
