Interesting & Informative

This podcast is the only food-related show that focuses on the business, technology, and culture of food. This unique perspective has been very enlightening. I want to know where my food comes from and how it is processed and this show has answered many of those questions and more. I also appreciate the cultural significance of food that is discussed on this show. Give it a listen!

I would love to give this podcast 5 stars...but

Superb podcast as far as content, reporting, attitude, and topics. Why did I take one star away?Because the music can be intrusive and jarring at times.I will keep listening, but I find this in many "over-produced" podcasts: the music is too noticeable. It's not the main feature of the podcast; nor, is it what people are generally coming to the podcast to hear. I believe most uf us are there for the content and intellectual fodder.

The Food Chain

Excellent programme. The show presents an informative and very interesting view of what is happening in our food manufacturing and food supply. A must listen, if you care about what you eat.

Absolutely Love It!

I enjoy the fact that they talk about food in terms of science, culture and more adding depth to the subject - definitely food for thought literally.

So good!

If you eat or buy or have ever seen food, the Food Chain is for you. Lively hosts share the ins and outs of our mysterious global food chain and explore curiosities and consequences along the way. I appreciate that they present left, right, and center perspectives. Start from the beginning! It's already changed the way I buy, cook, eat, and (no longer) throw out food.

Love it!

Covers tech, social, cultural, ethical, practical, scientific, and just about all other aspects of food. Great for ppl intensely interested not just in enjoying foods but also the back stories and implications of them.They interview key and relevant people, and the program is generally very objective.

Informative and Entertaining!

I love food science and news, so this podcast seems made for me. The topics are interesting and are usually issues that affect everyone (not just people in to food). This would be a great learning tool. It's important to know these things!

Surprisingly awesome

Awesome show with great insights and stories. Usually I am distracted/annoyed by British accents, but this show host is surprisingly tolerable.
