Like pretty much everyone else, I’m listening to more podcasts these days because, you know, there’s a pandemic happening. I especially love listening to food podcasts while cooking. It helps to calm my stress and anxiety and makes cooking more enjoyable. I usually go with food-related podcasts when in the kitchen because it’s a great way to learn about new cooking methods and listen to people who—like me—live and breathe food.
With that in mind, here are eight of the podcasts I love to listen to while cooking. These podcasts touch on a range of topics, including but not limited to food itself, social justice, intuitive eating, wellness, body respect, and our broader culture. Want to learn about the best methods for roasting vegetables while also gaining a deeper understanding of cultural appropriation in the food industry? I got you. All of these podcasts are intentional about inclusivity and feature guests with a wide range of lived experiences. Get ready to up your cooking game while learning so much in the process.
