  • Food for thought! (sorry)

    Really interesting and well thought out series. I learnt lots but was also entertained. Love the twin vibe. Looking forward to the next series.

  • Excellent investigation of how we are manipulated (and poisoned) by the food industry

  • Engaging and educational

    A fascinating personal journey that is both entertaining and educational. I would have given it 6 stars if it had had more swearing. :)

  • Excellent podcast. Very thought provoking and informative.

    I’ve done a lot of reading around the subject lately and this podcast has really confirmed everything I thought about flavourings and all the other rubbish that goes into our process food. Very enjoyable with the interactions between family members. Super informative and something that I’m definitely going to consider going forward, looking even more closely at packaging. Thank you.
