4.1 out of 5 stars from 545 ratings
  • Excellent podcast - ignore the crazy 1 stars

    This is a wonderful podcast if you’d like food and history. You will learn much. It’s unfortunate that some rather uneducated people have come here to post negative comments because they are obsessed with Gaza and have succumbed to propaganda, more

  • Hamburger America episode

    Thankfully the creator of Hamburger America, George Motz, was interesting. Kudos to him. A lack of pre-interview preparation by the “culinary historian” host is obvious. Clearly she didn’t know much about the history of hamburger nor of Hamburger America. A historian should not have to be constantly corrected by the guest. A skillful interviewer she is not. As a first time listener and bit of a foodie, it’s a disservice to the guest and listener.

  • No more!

    Loved this show, looked forward to new episodes. The content was good. (The host’s voice is snobby but it was charming somehow, like nerdy snobby.) more

  • Bad political takes

    Truly amazing how this podcast can be both so mediocre in quality AND on the side of genocidal powers in multiple simultaneous conflicts around the globe

  • Editors exist

    This show desperately needs an editor. These episodes would be half as long if they cut all of the filler words and stumbling- not just from the guests, but from the host (who really should be better at this by now)
