Lunch Therapy

Adam Roberts

Food writer Adam Roberts (The Amateur Gourmet, Secrets of the Best Chefs) has a knack for analyzing people's lunches. Now in its fourth season, Lunch Therapy showcases the lunches of a wide variety of guests: chefs (Fergus Henderson, Marco Canora), actors (Ryan O'Connell, Karan Soni), writers (Mary Roach, Steven Rowley), musicians (Ed Droste), comedians (Kate Berlant, Chelsea Peretti), and family (Adam's mom). Join in as Adam asks the most innocent yet provocative question in the business: "What did you have for lunch?"

  • Great Interviews

    I was happy to find Adam back focusing on food over the last year. I have especially been happy listening to him interview a variety of different people here. Lunch Therapy is an interesting but maybe challenging concept and Adam genuinely makes it work. His skills drawing out his guests are pretty amazing and seem innate. Listening to Adam is my new favorite thing to do while exercising.

    I love Adam’s podcast. His slightly off kilter and irreverent sense of humor really resonates with me as does his interest in all things food related. I am just now taking a look back on this absolute treasure trove of episodes. Thanks for these!

    Great podcast! Been following Adam Roberts for a while but just started listening to the podcast. Already learning lots. And just as fun and witty as his Blog and newsletter.
