'podcasts' on Serious Eats

Story Time: Mur Lafferty's 'The Blueberry Pie' and 'Last of the Pie Hunters'

"They use serrated knives to slaughter the cakes; our pie-server spears barely pierce flesh." Warning: This podcast is PG-13. If you think pie-smeared nookie might offend you, don't hit play. If it hasn't been obvious, I'm a bit of a science-fiction fan. I get a large dose of my fix each week via a couple excellent podcasts, one of which I discovered only a few weeks ago—Norm Sherman's beautifully produced Drabblecast. I've been powering through the Drabblecast archives and was delighted to find that Episode 105 of the show featured two short stories involving pie (embedded above), both by writer-podcaster Mur Lafferty. This being scifi/speculative fiction, there's just a bit of weirdness going on here. In the first story (scrub... More

The 'Cheese by Hand' Podcast

Michael Claypool and Sasha Davies started Cheese By Hand way back in the spring of 2006 with the mission of visiting American cheesemakers large and small and conducting audio interviews with them about "their craft and their lives."

Yesterday they posted the first completed interview, a conversation with Mateo Kehler of Jasper Hill Farm in Vermont.... More

We pondered where we’ve been and where we are going. We thought critically about the SFA’s role in documenting and celebrating the diverse food cultures of the American South. We paid homage to the subjects of our oral history initiative. Some of whom you’ve met on... More

Spices of Life

"Spices of Life is an innovative project that engages lovers of food, good health, and life’s pleasures through public radio, an on-line vlog and blog, and downloadable podcasts." It's put together by award-winning cookbook author Nina Simonds, veteran radio producer Sue Schardt and pioneering videoblogger Steve Garfield, so you know even though it's new it's already pretty good. (Also as a nerd I have to say it's amazing that the videos on the site are shot with a cellphone—a Nokia N93, to be precise. The video quality would never make you think it if they didn't mention it upfront.)... More
