Peppered with anti-Christian bigotry, in some cases leading to historical revisionism, such as a false rewriting of the crusades.

I really enjoy Simon’s style of presentation and the subjects of each show are alway so fascinating!

I highly recommend this podcast to everyone. The amount of research and analysis that goes into every episode is mind-boggling. The information is always presented in a coherent, well-organized, AND entertaining manner. It’s seriously impressive. I was afraid this would be a little too...Read full review »

Hey ... Bruins are all over the place, even outside LA! Great podcast; thanks Not related to this show, but as a follow-up to the curry show, it would be interesting to see how other former European colonial powers in Asia — I’m thinking Portugal, the Netherlands, and France — adapted curries...Read full review »

I have been a fan of Simon for as long as I can remember. He has a way with food that is hard to describe. Not only does he love food, but he loves it in a way that puts most food lovers and bloggers to shame. When I discovered that he had a podcast, I literally jumped for my phone and downloaded...Read full review »

Kudos to Simon for creating and being a part of this great series. Food brings, health, love, friendship. You may be by yourself enjoying a favourite food, with friends cooking and enjoying a meal. To learn about our favourite foods just makes it more meaningful.

In addition to being a preeminent ambassador of food anthropology, Simon is simply, truly... undeniably... a remarkable human being. He is a paradox—a stranger to whom I would offer the key to my refuge, my home. Because there are some souls we encounter in life whose depth of pure goodness...Read full review »

It’s a passable pod. Love his voice and accent, but 5 stars across the board? No. Some subjects are really not interesting. No new pods for a while, not going to regret deleting it and gaining memory on my phone.

Simon Majumdar does a fantastic job of finding intriguing, fascinating information on what most people would call common ingredients and cuisines. His narration style holds my interest and his puns are perfect.
NVLupine via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/12/20
I’ll admit that sometimes the subject of the podcast doesn’t sound interesting to me but once I start listening I discover all sorts of information that is fascinating and I pass along to friends and family. They think I’m a treasure trove of food information but it’s actually because Simon...Read full review »

Nice to see that very annoying and pedantic person who used to me a know it all on various food discussion boards has made something of himself. Ah! Those wonderful days when he would block people on social media for having a different opinion. Podcast not bad though.

I have always appreciated Simon as a judge on Food Network and I love cooking and history. This show is one of my favorites; I learn a lot and find it very entertaining. It’s good to learn about the history of some of our favorite things.

I first learned of the Eat My Globe podcast when Alton Brown posted in Instagram that he would be a guest in the show. I knew if Alton was a fan, then I probably would be, too. Alton is one of the biggest influences on my interest in cooking, food science, and creativity. Simon is now right up...Read full review »

Simon Majumdar weaves food and history together in a story full of fascinating facts about food. You will learn many things about food that you never even thought of and have a whole different outlook on food when you are done listening.

I have always enjoyed Simon Majumdar’s books, and it is a delight to hear him read in his own voice. Great info as well.
Secrets&Cream via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/20/20
I saw Alex Guarnaschelli recommend this podcast on Twitter and now I’m making my way up to current episodes from the beginning. I’ve been loving every episode and learning more about the food we all know and love!
leahmancl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/17/19
Wow. I thought the History Channel program “The Food That Made America” was good, but this episode was the truth. Blown away by many of these accomplishments, and am eager to do more research myself. Because it was asked, I’d keep Kellogg off the list purely for where we are today in American...Read full review »

Simon has a wealth of information about the history of food, and delivers this information in a fun and engaging way. His podcasts are a great way to learn something new and I always finish listening wishing I was near a restaurant or store!
Csteved66 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/08/19
Simon is fantastic and enthusiastic. If you love history and food, this is a podcast that will scratch both of those particular itches.

@GootieCooks via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/27/19
Fascinating delves into the histories and origins of various foods & food traditions. Simon is a knowledgeable and charming host for this show, and his perspectives and anecdotes all contribute to making this my new favorite podcast.
Keller1892261 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/01/19
Simon Majumdar is widely known as a judge on Iron Chef America, Chopped, Beat Bobby Flay and many other food shows. But Simon is really a food historian. He has travelled the globe and studied American regional cuisine in depth. He has a sharp English wit that gives this podcast a fun flair. Is...Read full review »

yakgirl52 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/20/18
Simon’s unique voice in the very bloated and egocentric “food world” is a breath of fresh air. Finally someone who knows more about food than just its ingredients is bringing its history, culture and eccentric stories to life. There should be a TV series that goes a long with it. Brilliantly...Read full review »

Whether it’s appearing on Food Network as a judge or traveling the world eating everything— Simon knows his stuff and has first hand knowledge and experience from everything he talks about.
jordanhandy via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/18
As a professionally trained Historian it is refreshing to see a culinary podcast that approaches interesting and relevant topics in a way that is not only interesting but as accurate as historical analysis can be. Fun listen and/or read for any culinary or history fan! 5 stars for sure!
Ochismo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/18
If you like Simon then you’ll love this podcast. If you don’t like Simon you will still learn A LOT about the subject at hand. Also why don’t you like Simon?
cyberduck07 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/30/18
This series is fantastic. Informative, in-depth and fully entertaining. Simon takes you on a journey that explores each subject in a way that is both familiar and fresh. I highly recommend this to food lovers, history buffs and anyone who loves a good story. Enjoy.
MarkEatsItAll via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/25/18
We love listening to Simon. I love food and my husband loves history and culture, so we are both happy, and we have found all the episodes really interesting. And it doesn't hurt that his English accent is plenty easy on the ears. :)Read full review »

They say nostalgia and food combined is one of the best feel-good factors out there. An inspirational and intriguing journey into the world of food, leaves you drooling for more.
Nik_merc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/17/18
So far, so fascinating. Excellent research plus personal experience commentary on the topics. I thought I knew sandwiches then I learned more. Same with gin, which I’m not well-versed but more so now. These topics are written as I would write them so you have historical perspective plus personal...Read full review »

The in-depth story of food in all its forms. Disclaimer: I’m his brother and I still gave it 5 stars!
HERMANOPRIMERO via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/12/18
Simon has a gift for sharing his culinary knowledge is a way that makes every dish sounds mouthwatering and inspiring. Listen to this podcast might just inspire you to cook up a storm or invite friends over for dinner. And I assure you, everyone will enjoy every last bite!
yosefsilver via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/11/18
I’m always fascinated by history, especially from a sociological perspective. Food is so central to that! You must join Simon on culinary explorations. You will be entertained and probably hungry!
QuiGonTimm via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/10/18
I could listen to Simon talk about food all day. He’s so informative and what he talks about is so well researched that it makes me appreciate what I eat but most especially, appreciate the people who puts a lot of effort to prepare them. Love it!
Boonai1 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/06/18
What an interesting podcast! It’s so fun to learn the history of foods we know and love. This show is so well researched, entertaining and informative. Simon makes for the perfect narrator. Looking forward to more episodes!
ShreeinMagTown via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/04/18

This isn't a cooking podcast. This is a wonderful mix of the history and anthropology of everyday food - at least that's my take after the first episode.

I’ve been searching for a new food podcast for awhile now! Eat My Globe is fulfilling that need! Simon is knowledgeable and presents the information in a clear and concise format.
grandama911 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/01/18
I’ve always looked forward to Simon’s appearances on Food Network and follow him on Instagram, so I was super excited when I heard about this podcast. I can already tell I won’t be disappointed!
