The Food Chain

Tune into The Food Chain for mouth-watering and mind-boggling insights on all things food and food systems. With more than 200 episodes as of this write-up, the podcast has explored food through several lenses, from "the business, science, and cultural significance of food," to "what it takes to put food on your plate." For example, the "How to tell a food story" episode weighs in on "how food can be used as a narrative device," while "The tipping point" episode explores cultural and psychological effects on "tipping norms." The reoccurring episode theme "My Life in 5 Dishes" features culinary celebrities (including Gordon Ramsay and Marcus Samuelsson) who invite listeners into their lives through their plates, "shar[ing] their thoughts on the five dishes that mean the most to them." While the topics covered are wide-ranging, the length is manageable; most episodes are less than 30 minutes long, the perfect listen for your lunch break. The Food Chain is a project of BBC World Service and can be found on BBC's website (at the link above), as well as popular podcast platforms such as Apple Podcasts and Spotify.
