Why this theme?

👉🏽 It's spring! We’re emerging from the long winter. Winters with short days and long nights can be difficult for me. One way I cheer myself up is by experimenting with new cuisines and recipes. This winter, these podcast episodes inspired me to try something new, either in the kitchen, at a restaurant, or as part of a travel destination. They continue to inspire me into the spring as new ingredients and new travel possibilities open up. 

Podcast Picks

Chewing podcast cover art


Hosts Monica Eng and Lousa Chu talk about Monica's "get well" soup for her father who was recovering in the hospital. It combines Chinese, Korean, and Jewish cooking traditions. Then they discuss Lunar New Year food traditions and a new Chicago restaurant. Every episode of Chewing digs into ingredients, immigrant foodways, street food, and something to tie in the kitchen.

Toasted Sister Podcast cover art

Toasted Sister Podcast

Navajo journalist Andi Murphy reports from the Navajo Nation Fair, where contestants from the Miss Navajo pageant compete in slaughtering, butchering, and cooking sheep. It's surprisingly appetizing (if you can handle descriptions of animal slaughter). This episode includes interviews from the former and current Miss Navajo Nation and the Navajo National president about the importance of sheep and other traditional food.

Be My Guest podcast cover art

Be My Guest with Ina Garten

Stanley Tucci, the actor, director, mixologist, and TV host, visits Ina Garten, cookbook writer and TV host, at her Long Island home. Ina makes oysters Rockefeller, and Stanley makes them both martinis. Sure, it's sort of a celebrity love fest, but it's so fun to hear two foodies delight in food, drink, and good company.

Upper Middlebrow podcast cover art

Upper Middlebrow

Ok, this one is EarBuds curator Jesse Dukes’s podcast, but he can't imagine anything that will make you want to cook more than watching and then hearing a conversation about a 1985 Danish film centered on a French woman who cooks a delicious meal for a village of Danish puritans. Hosts Jesse and Chris Bagg discuss how the filmmaker suggests a middleground between the hedonistic aristocratic society of Paris, and the austere and occasionally severe Danish village. This is part of a six-part series on "Foodie Films.”

As We Eat podcast cover art

As We Eat

In every episode, hosts Kim Baker and Leigh Olson pick a cookbook or recipe and explore it's socio-cultural history. In this episode, they consider Chef Sean Sherman's The Sioux Chef's Indigenous Kitchen, a cookbook that surfaces and celebrates Sioux cuisine and ingredients.

🎤 This week in Podcast The Newsletter: Lauren Passell writes: “Everything Is Stories lets you hear a story straight from the narrator’s mouth, so it kind of feels like you’re listening to a friend at a bar. The episode I want to point you to was a story from Dora Rodriguez, a woman from El Salvador who left her family and risked her life to come to the U.S., crossing the desert with a coyote.”

🎧Imagine you were a fly on the wall at a dinner between the mafia, the CIA, and the KGB. That’s where this unprecedented story begins. A journey through the dark world of Russian intelligence where, for the first time, a professed “sex spy” tells her story. All of it. In To Die For, host Neil Strauss brings listeners into the dangerous world of sexpionage, where enemies of the State are not the only victims.
