    I'm looking for some food podcasts to listen to while I am at my office job. I listen to Chewing regularly. It does not look like Sky Full of Bacon is still podcasting. I also recently discovered Gastropod and The Sporkful. Any others to recommend? Or one-off episodes of non-food podcasts that mention Chicago or Chinese food?

    Gravy tells some very interesting and often important stories about foodways in the American South.

    Foodstuff is the best as far as information-dense but still fun food podcasts.

    Smart Mouth has good interviews with food personalities where it doesn't come across as chef worship or pretentious

    I recently started listening to The Feed podcast with Steve Dolinsky and Rick Bayless. They've had some interesting guests. Also, I'll second Chewing, with Monica Eng and our own Louisa Chu.

    Here's my list of yet unmentioned podcasts I either subscribe, or listen to from time to time:

      Bon Appetit Foodcast
      Tales from the pits; a Texas BBQ podcast
      The Alton Browncast (paused, I assume b/c AB's on tour)
      Burnt Toast
      Cutting the Curd (part of the Heritage Radio Network which has a bunch of food-related podcasts)
      Special Sauce with Ed Levine (Serious Eats founder)
      The Splendid Table

    Hope this helps,
    Dave

    p.s. I'm a big fan of the Overcast app for podcasts as their "Smart Speed" feature which cuts dead air between words, shortening podcasts without the audio sounding rushed. According to the app, that feature has saved me 74 hours in the year or so that I've been using it. You can also increase the playback speed separately of the Smart Speed feature.

    I think it was mentioned on another thread, but I'm still enjoying Milk Street Radio from the new venture by Chris Kimball. The podcast is broken up nicely into different segments. My favorites are the call-in Q&A where Chris and Sara Moulton try to answer questions from listeners as well as the segment where Chris asks a chef to describe what they make "in 25 minutes on a weeknight".

    Thanks for all these suggestions! I've been listening all week. Listening to WBEZ's BBC late night programming, came across this one, The Food Chain: "The Food Chain examines the business, science and cultural significance of food, and what it takes to put food on your plate." http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p028z2z ... /downloads

    Can't recall how I found this one, but another one to try: http://heritageradionetwork.org/series/ ... -the-past/ "A weekly journey through the history of food"

    I've recently been blowing through the Racist Sandwich archives to get caught up to the current episodes. I cannot recommend this podcast enough because they are doing important work trying to reshape food media to be a more inclusive entity.

    From 2008 until mid-2013, Culinary Historians programs were recorded by WBEZ via Chicago Amplified. Since then, we have recorded our programs hosted on soundcloud.

    You can find a list here.

    We are also on:
    GooglePlay
    itunes
    rss feed
    SoundCloud
    Stitcher

    These run the length of an introduction plus presentation with questions, but no food samples. :D

    This may have been posted in another thread, but the traditional Chicago aquarium smoker and Chicago barbecue were featured on the latest episode of the Southern Foodways Alliance podcast with John T Edge.
