Gastropod: the podcast that examines food through the lens of woke-ness and virtue signaling…. The content is often fascinating but poisoned by whatever the latest woke trend may be.

These women, Nicola and Cynthia, are brilliant at what they do! I have learned so much from this podcast! And they also give great recommendations for other podcasts. Funny, smart, well-researched content. And people, that is a BRITISH accent!

Like most people around the world, you probably didn’t do much flying this past year. Maybe you miss the bustle of airports and the joy of seeing friends in far-off places—but chances are, you probably don’t miss the food handed out on planes: those sad little tinfoil-covered trays of rubbery...
