Co-hosts Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley serve up a brand new episode every month, plus a snack-size interlude to tide you over in between. Each episode, we explore the hidden history and surprising science behind a different food and/or farming-related topic, from aquaculture to ancient feasts, from cutlery to chile peppers, and from microbes to Malbec. We interview experts, visit labs, fields, and archaeological digs, and generally have lots of fun while discovering new ways to think about and understand the world through food. We think these stories are fascinating, and we think you will too. Find us online at gastropod.com, follow us on Twitter @gastropodcast, and like us on Facebook at facebook.com/gastropodcast.
