Favorite food podcasts?

I get a few food podcasts (which, oddly, I listen to while jogging... sort of a yin yang thing), but am looking for some other good ones. I really like KCRW's and The Splendid Table and would like to find something as informative as these. I also really enjoy NPR food, some of the Culinary Podcast Network shows and the Hidden Kitchens series. Anyone know of some gems I should add?

  1. I too listen to podcasts while jogging - and NPR food is among them. I look forward to seeing what others suggest.

    Bon Appetit and Gourmet both have podcasts but I haven't tried them myself yet.

    On a non-food note I've found NPR's Wait,Wait Don't Tell me to be a great listen while jogging - as long as you don't mind people looking at you funny when you bust out laughing!

    1. I was really disappointed by the Gourmet podcasts-- not substantive. I'll have to try the ones your recommend. There was also a hilarious Times Talks session ( with Rachel Ray and a couple of other FN stars (not a big Ray fan, but it was still interesting). Also not food-related, but my favorite show to listen to on Podcast is This American Life (the approx. 15 min. "acts" are great for workouts).

        I didn't realize this american life has a podcast, thanks for sharing that.

          I LOVE This American Life. Haven't heard it in years. I'll have to check this out.

      2. I enjoy listening to "The Restaurant Guys", who, although based in NJ have a non-local appeal too. (I'm not in their area) They very often have interviews with famous chefs, wine people, and people in the know regarding current food trends, etc.. It is also just interesting to learn about the restaurant industry but their podcast is in no way limited to that. You can get it on iTunes. I also like the above mentioned podcasts. If you're into wine, "The Cellar Rat" is kind of interesting, too. He's in Healdsburg, CA and if you listen from the start, was just a novice who quit his job in the midwest and went to work in a vineyard.

        1. I usually enjoy The Restaurant Guys from WCTC in New Jersey. It is a repackaging of their daily talk show. The have a lot of interesting guests from the biz.

          I'll second the vote for Good Food from KCRW but listening to the Market Report segment makes me green with envy.

          Off the Broiler from one of the founders of eGullet can be good to but it only comes out occasionally and the sound quality can leave a lot to be desired.

            That's funny you said that about the Market Report on Good Food. I usually fast-forward over it, then I get real curious to see what wonderful produce they're talking about, so have to sneak a listen. Painful for those on the east coast in the winter!

          2. Eat Feed is awesome -- "The food podcast network that takes you back in time, across the country, around the world, and back to your own table."

            I've been listening to it since it first began (It got Podcast of the Year in 2005)


            And you can use the Culinary Podcast Network to find more tasty podcasts...
