This week we have been drinking from a figurative fire hose in order to find some sweet podcasts to make your tastebuds and earbuds smile. This topic is so broad that we have had to narrow it down a bit. So, we’ve left out some of the podcasts that are exclusively nutrition based, and are too broad, or to narrow. Should get us to few that are just right. This one is already begging for a sequel, so we would love to hear if there are some other favorites out there.
