Artwork for Gastropod


Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley

Food with a side of science and history. Every other week, co-hosts Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley serve up a brand new episode exploring the hidden history and surprising science behind a different food- or farming-related topic, from aquaculture to ancient feasts, from cutlery to chile peppers, and from microbes to Malbec. We interview experts, visit labs, fields, and archaeological digs, and generally have lots of fun while discovering new ways to think about and understand the world through food.

  • The subjects are great. Food as discussed by way of science and history. There is, though, a quirk. One of the hosts spent her childhood in England learning to lose her accent. The result has been that now she speaks with a peculiar accent, not at all consistent from day to day and with hard "t's" that strike the ear like the sound of a yardstick against a table. She has simply said that we're rude Americans for noticing, but it's glaringly noticable. Sorry, not sorry. Still listen, though.

  • Very bizarre speech patterns.

    I thought the description sounded intriguing and was looking forward to this podcast, but one of the hosts speaks with very strange and jarring vocal patterns/inflections and I really can’t handle it. It’s like listing to AI software reading a script. Only made it a few minutes into my first episode before I had to stop.
