I joined SFA for food, recipes fun. This podcast is some strange NPR like show with unintelligent commentary that is in a word weird. The content is completely unrelated to southern food. The politics and historical insights are incomprehensible and some episodes are under 5 minutes. This is...Read full review »

I’m a massage therapist and sometimes I get bored during a massage so I put in an ear bud to listen to podcasts and pass the time faster. I listened to the first episode and haven’t been able to put it down! I tell EVERYONE about this show!

I just found your podcast and I love it. I love the information you have and the guests that you have on the show. Keep up the good work.

Topic very interesting and well researched , interesting research on food and changed in Americans sizes . Aside: the “music “ in the background became overwhelming and took over the audio at points hard to listen in ear buds Love Gravy !

Unsubscribes after John T was forced out for being white. I can’t support a racist organization.

This show does an excellent job of teaching me important information while talking about one of my favorite subjects, food

Always interesting and well told. I’ve enjoyed just about every episode!

I grew up in the New York City area, as usually is the case one has to leave one’s hometown to gain an appreciation for it. That sort of happened. Friends would wonder why I would be fascinated by biscuits with sausage gravy, gumbo or a big slice of cake. As someone who is working class 1st...Read full review »

Gravy you should listen to from the beginning. It’s fantastic. It’s the podcast of the Southern Foodways Alliance so they’re using good as a gateway to talk about culture. Historical stories, immigrant stories, people stories all told through a lens of food. From a synagogue in Louisiana, to...Read full review »

Been reading reviews and this podcast isn’t “preachy” at all, they are literally spelling out the facts of reality in a changing south, very informative and well produced

I used to love this podcast. It was my favorite of many that I listen to on iTunes. Please get back to your roots, because this used to be a delight and isn’t anymore.

I used to look forward to the next drop of Gravy Podcast. (Pun intended). Now every episode seems to be not about food per se but about the downtrodden and quite frankly I don’t care to listen to that. At least not every podcast. The last few months have been nothing I want to listen to. I came...Read full review »

John T. and Melissa are much better hosts than the earlier ones. Love the podcast! Would be ok to sometimes focus on more traditional southern food traditions rather than always new readings.
mdcooper88 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/25/19
I love this podcast! It is political, but I enjoy that along with the history and food descriptions. I love hearing people’s stories and it is quite enlightening.
Rosalie May via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/05/19
This is one of the few podcasts where I listen to the episodes more than once. I trap my family in the car so that they listen to the deep and varied stories from across the south. It reminds me often of the depth of reporting I find in Texas Monthly.
notsoemogirl via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/14/19
Should be called Liberal Gravy. Very preachy podcast in the episodes I listened to. Pushed diversity with food/cooking as a background topic. Can anyone recommend a podcast on Southern food and cooking where the passion and focus is Southern food and cooking?
fiddlermalaz via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/12/19
I came across this podcast in the past month or so, just before I move back to the South after four years spent in Chicago. I wanted something that explored some of the social and political and religious and cultural issues of the South, and how perfect that it’s centered around food, as food is...Read full review »

I especially like the episode about the women who duck hunt!

I am a food nerd with ties to the south who loves history and storytelling. So thank you for basically creating a podcast that is tailored for me! The only problem is how often it makes me hungry 😊
mcatpeery via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/11/18
Beautiful representation of southern food and the culture that is woven through it
Evbooooo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/21/18
The best food podcast there is
Found a new slant via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/16/18
It's really nice to hear a food show that's not about cooking or restaurants I'll probably never go to, but instead about bigger issues. It's basically This American Life that makes you hungry.Read full review »

Raw and real. Miss this and you’d be a fool. Whether your American or British (as I am) these documentaries are vital to the understanding of the world around us all and crucial listening - so very well presented by ‘Gravy’. I recommend these Podcasts to everyone !!
Mustang Sally08 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/31/17
a decent overview of modern southern food ways with good stories of out of the way places
JAGSC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/26/17
Gravy is always informative, interesting and important. It serves up good, old Southern food traditions with a generous side of new offerings, thanks to a generation of immigrants.
LeslieNBTX via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/14/17
As a Canadian, I get excited to hear every episode of Gravy (and love all the accents). The American South and its food are some of the best parts of America, yet it’s strangely under explored. It’s also strange that this pod isn’t more popular considering the production quality and topic...Read full review »

This is where history, poetry, stories, and food melt into one amazing podcast.
Simergh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/27/17
The Gravy podcast is the embodiment of my believe that wherever you go, you'll find the South. It offers a wonderful, insightful view into the way our food and our culture are not exclusionary, but all-encompassing. Well done, y'all.Read full review »

As a longtime, avid podcast listener, I have many, many favorites.

I adore this podcast. It is entertaining and well-produced, and really shows the diversity of the South and all the people who make their home there.
Ebeehj via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/06/17
I look forward to every episode of this podcast - it's a smart, refreshing look at food and culture (and so much more) in the modern south, and the intelligent look at the intricacies of southern regional culture makes me feel seen and understood as a liberal southerner in a modern world.Read full review »

I listen to a lot of podcasts and this is the best one of them all. As a child of immigrants who was born and raised in the urban South and went to college in the rural South, this podcast speaks to me.

I meant to only listen to one episode this morning. Im four in now. My Granny, from Tennessee, passed when I was in high school and listening to the voices and sounds of the South are bringing her into my Arizona home. I'm also learning so much about a people and place that I have ties to...Read full review »
alm and boo via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/01/17
There are some great episodes in here but it focuses a lot on highlighting different populations' contribution to southern food. A lot of it sounds like intellectual narcissism and is full of factual errors.Read full review »

Gravy was one of the shows that inspired me to become a podcast producer a couple years ago. As a food/story lover, I was often disappointed when podcasts started taking off because all these food shows had excellent content but were dry and uninsiring. Finding the Gravy podcast was a breath of...Read full review »

When a podcast leads you from oral histories of farm wives recalling the excitement of being able to make jello - along the way teaching you about the Rural Electrification Administration you know they are cooking with gas! I LOVE this podcast!
