Foodie Pharmacology

Dr. Cassandra Quave, a professor and researcher studying botanical science, invites "flavor connoisseurs," "science geeks," and foodies of all kinds to join her on an adventure as she "explores the world of the food-medicine continuum," with Foodie Pharmacology. The podcast combines "history, medicine, cuisine, and molecules," and brings aboard guests to discuss age old questions (for example, "Can an apple a day keep the doctor away?" in Episode 21) and current science hot-topics (for example, "Eating for Peak Fitness" in Episode 33). Other recent topics include the history of antibiotics (Episode 32) and the evolutionary biology interlaced in our eating habits (Episode 30). Following the above link, readers will find more than 35 episodes (as of this write-up), as well as biographies of each guest on that installment of the podcast. Most episodes are around an hour long and are also available on Apple Podcasts and Soundcloud. Readers looking for more resources from Dr. Quave should check out the link to her research group's website (accessible from the About page), which connects readers to an assortment of research articles and projects.
