Fall, winter, spring, summer, I’m always into podcasts, particularly the food-related kind.
There is no show on Netflix I am currently hooked on and we haven’t had cable (or even TV) in years, which means when I’m not reading, podcasts are my favourite diversion. I’m a hard core multitasker, and podcasts are the perfect way to stay educated, entertained and up-to-date on the global culinary scene while still getting my laundry folded or step count in for the day.
And to be honest, they are are a decent substitute for adult conversation for a work at home mom with a houseful of kids. I’ve been known to listen in on a conversation between Molly and Matthew with a solitary ear bud, while simultaneously supervising three kids running around a sunny park.
Podcasts seem to come and go rather quickly. Two years ago you would have found me tuning into David Leite’s Talking with My Mouth Full or Joy the Baker’s We’re About to be Friends. Last year there was Alphabet Soup, among others, but for whatever reasons, many podcasts die out or take very long breaks. This snappy round-up is keeping hip and current by only including culinary podcasts that are updating on a regular basis.
Listening to one full episode of a particular podcast is usually enough to make a decision whether or not you want to continue. I hope you jump in and discover a few new favourites!
