The Alton Browncast

I'm a fan of food pocasts (the only way I get housework done), and it's not bad. Very Food Network centred of course, but still very listenable. So far I'm a fan of the interviews with Ted Allen (worth it for the butler and Chihuahua), Hugh Acheson, and surprisingly, Damaris Phillips (Next Food Network Star winner), who is much more interesting than she ever appeared to be on tv.

  1. I liked the episode with the two judges from NFNS, even though I don't watch that show. They talked about the transition from the old FN (which was IMO much better, but that is another matter) to now. Interesting. The Ted Allen one was great.

    1. I'm enjoying it, particularly the fact that he edits, rather than just rambling for an hour like so so so many other podcasts do.

      Unfortunately I listen when I'm away from home, so the how-to sections are kind of lost on me (because I can't remember any process for longer than two minutes) unless I relisten later on. And I never do remember to.

      But it's great listening to people like Bobby or Alex just yak.

        I think he over edits actually. The beauty of the podcast form is that you need not have a time limit, so if one show is longer than another, so be it.

          True that. And don't really need to be scheduled weekly. But he's old school.

      2. Thanks for taking the time to post about this. I kind of started backwards with the Ted Allen episode and really enjoyed it.
