Eat My Globe

Eat My Globe is a podcast created by TV personality, author, and cook Simon Majumdar and produced by April Simpson, in collaboration with the UCLA Department of History and its Public History Initiative. Five seasons of the podcast are available online, dating from October 2018 through the present. The show is an especially pleasant listen for anyone longing to travel, but prevented by the pandemic. Most episodes start with some jokes and puns between Majumdar and Simpson. Then, they dive into content. Topics from season 5 include "Plaice & Thyme: The History of the Cookbook," "Not Despised at the Best Tables: The History of Caviar," and "The History of Curry" in two parts (which, among other things, tells the story of how curry became the most common take out food in the United Kingdom). While it is not easy to tell the running time of individual podcasts at the link above, listeners will find free transcripts (annotated transcripts, which include all the references and resources cited, can be purchased as PDFs). Eat My Globe is also available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, and the iHeartRADIO app.
