Reviews
I thought it was just me but after reading the reviews it seems I’m not alone in dislike of the recent format where people are reading their essays….and reading them in a robot monotone. ATK usually does everything in a top notch way so the quality of this podcast is surprising. Sometimes I can...Read full review »

Don’t waste your time too long adverts then rubbish content and don’t buy the book
Steve Stanton via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/02/23
I love this show and all of the fascinating content. The latest episode A New Dads Guide to Ramadan was eye opening. Raised Catholic, 12 years In Catholic school and all the traditions, I never felt the connection and they never “stuck”. Now living in a country that “celebrates” Catholic holidays...Read full review »

Sounds like an AI is hosting this show. The entire thing sounds like an ad.

Food Accidents had such poor audio and each person sounded so stilted and like they were trying WAY too hard in a community theatre production. How could an episode about accidents be so terribly scripted-sounding? Yikes. Couldn’t even finish it. Very disappointed

Please provide recipe!

Loved this episode, my mouth is watering! I would really appreciate a recipe for both the Giaediniera and the sandwich… pleeeeeeeze

I absolutely loved this episode, just what I needed this holiday and is a beautiful tribute! Intrigued to try and make it myself🤞❤️

At first I had my doubts about an audio medium for such a visual content as food, but I really enjoy this podcast! Descriptions of the food, recipes, storytelling and even the ads are somehow so engaging. Maybe without the visual images, I was able to learn more about the actual audio content. I...Read full review »

I am no foodie, and came to this delightful podcast by way of the "blue raspberry/chemical flavoring" episode (because I really do love any candy or drink the color of window cleaner) and was hooked. Love the exploration of the "how" and "why" of what we eat as a nation...Read full review »

Was prepared to give Kevin Pang and crew the benefit of the doubt when they took over but like others, finding the one diamond in the rough became too much of a chore. The last couple of seasons sound more like college interns reading their term papers and/or blog posts about their personal...Read full review »

Was hoping for more food and cooking science here. The podcast really lost me when it turned to a history of food feuds, and while the stories were somewhat interesting, I just wasn’t wanting to hear about more feuds during the pandemic. I hope this podcast gets back to its test kitchen roots....Read full review »

Since the new host has taken over, sorry Kevin, but it’s terrible. The stories about food history used to be fascinating and informative; and I always looked forward to a new proof episode. Now, it’s a podcast where simply the mention of food (see the episode on the Beetles toast) is good enough...Read full review »

I want a food podcast with information about food. Stories about food if the forefront, not the background.
TuanCanCook via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/10/22
More food, fewer politics. I’m out
Wings-As-Eagles via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/08/22
I love his voice and the storytelling. But why do the credits still say Bridget is the host when she’s been replaced by Kevin?
Food admirer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/28/22
I loved this podcast at first, it was what it said it was, really interesting topics across the food arena. Now, as of the last dozen or so episodes it’s nothing but political agenda with a food spin. If that’s your thing, than cool, but I just wanted an escape into great food related content....Read full review »

I absolutely loved the recent episode with Camilo Garzón on the ants as a traditional indigenous treat eaten by the Guanes of Colombia. I really appreciate the parallels he draws between sustaining Indigenous food sources and sustaining the ecosystems for the ants to thrive. My favorite is...Read full review »
Gigi DC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/04/22
This used to be a podcast about food. Now it is a show about racial identity, with food as an underlying theme. In recent seasons, a few episodes are heartwarming tributes to family and tradition, but more often they feature sad stories with a seasoning of moral outrage. These stories have their...Read full review »

This new format reminds me of college book reports with its woke topics and trivial social studies agenda shoved down your throat 80% of the time rather than educating on cooking.
13Jim69 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/06/22
This is a super educational and fun podcast.
Mkat27 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/07/22
This podcast was such a pleasure with Bridget Lancaster hosting, and it’s tone and production completely changed for the worse with a new host. It’s gotten, I’d say, very irritating to listen to. Kind of a heartbreaker for a once-loyal listener.
figaro1284 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/24/22
I loved this podcast when it started and I loved Bridget as the original host. The episodes were interesting and drew me in every time. I always learned something new. The show got a new host a while back, Kevin, and then really changed the overall topics to be much more political and social...Read full review »

It’s definitely more inclusive storytelling. Kevin Pang has a soothing voice that just draws me in. His guests tell emotional and beautiful stories. I can get enough.
neller nelly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/01/22
This is my favorite podcast and I’ve been marathoning episodes since I discovered it. Bridget is wonderful. Episodes are loaded with interesting, informative, and fun info presented with knowledgeable guests by a delightful and skilled hostess. If you like Bridget on ATK, you’re gonna love this.
bruskik via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/21/22
Been listening since the beginning. Its clearly shifting away from food science/history to racial politics. I have NPR for that, unsubscribed.
Rafidali via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/10/22
While the topics can be engaging, the copy and dialogue seem a bit rehearsed and disingenuous at times. I know writing and producing a podcast needs to walk a fine line between being too off the cuff and too regimented, but it seems that these guys could loosen up a tad and go a bit more off...Read full review »
The AA Show via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/08/22
Thought this was going to be about food. They never miss the opportunity to inject their political ideology into the mix. Too much commentary and it takes away from the food dialogue. Goodbye.
Heavysigh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/16/21
What a wonderful show about family heritage and father son relationships.. The mix of descriptive food that made me want to learn more , and Chinese culture mixed with father son history over the years was a delightful and interesting hour . As I listened , it took me back to my teenage yrs with...Read full review »

I found this relatively late. Glad there are older episodes to listen to because the new “direction” is terrible. Uninteresting topics, hardly any new episodes. I have literally skipped 6 out for the 7 new episodes. Disappointing. I will finish listening to the earlier episodes and then unfollow.
Bittah via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/21/21
Love your theme song and very interesting topics
thisisthebestgg via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/15/21
I’ve been listening to this podcast since the day it aired. I do not mind the new hosts and I am glad that you guys are talking about interesting topics that are more fun and entertaining. I do miss Bridget’s voice. However, I am going to keep listening!
hstreaks00 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/04/21
I got fed up of skipping forward two minutes every ten minutes.
J-3PO via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 09/16/21
I am a regular listener to Proof and was really disappointed to hear what was sold as an episode on spice was actually a political push for Palestine - I do not have an issue with this but it was so totally anti-Israel - there are two sides to every story people and selling the hardline...Read full review »
Krell17 via Apple Podcasts · Singapore · 08/26/21
Every episode seems to be laden with an extra scoop of virtue signalling or wokeness. The last episode I listened to was about indiginous "science." I am sure that indigenous people know a lot, and that they have a lot of acquired knowlede to impart. But to imply that knowledge acquired...Read full review »
Nathan Nathaniel via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 08/07/21
There are some excellent reporters on their team and there are some well thought out, fascinating topics. When those things come together, the episodes are absolute gold! Unfortunately there is too much variability and some episodes don’t cut the mustard so to speak, and some episodes could...Read full review »

Listening to this episode of Ahmed Ali Akbar’s was so sweet and tender and relatable. Felt all the feels listening to it

I listen while I prepare samples at my food science job
CharryChar via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/28/21
Too many interruptions and not enough content. Each episode could be reduced to 10 mins if all the cr*p was swept aside. I’ve unsubscribed because of it.
AntoineDuCoq via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 05/20/21
I get such joy listening to this podcast. It is clearly lovingly made by those who are passionate about food and people who make and eat it. I love learning from the podcast and I look forward to whatever new episodes you all put out into the world. Thank you for all of your time and energy!...Read full review »

Native Americans grew blue corn. This is contrary to your claim there is no naturally blue food. Not true!
EasternOregon via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/04/21
I was prepared not to like this podcast, but it has grown on me. Most episodes are very interesting although some feel a bit padded to fill the time allotment. Still, I recommend it.
LT351 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/28/21
When people think of food they don’t think of how much effort was put in food’s history. I read a review say think wasn’t really about food but more about people. I don’t think they’re wrong because food is about people. The history, the culture, and the people who made it. Thank you for...Read full review »
Moonwatcher the ditto via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/21
Wow
Comparing people’s discomfort listening to others eat to “white supremacy” Absolutely disgusting. Disturbing. This pod was suggested to me. I was really looking forward to it and within minutes an entitled whiny voice does the above? I’ve never written a bad review for anyone or anything, but...Read full review »

The best episodes explore food history as it intersects with American culture.
mibii via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/28/21
Host is super boring and monotone. She adds nothing to the show. No humor or interesting insights. Episodes are all over the place and not very well put together.
pajama_mode via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/16/21
The episode about last meals left me hanging. Was the olive green or black?
whyisbeinghappytaken via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/31/21
I love this podcast! This past one about ice cream truck music was a home run. Who knew I would tear up listening to a food podcast!
