Great interviews, thought provoking
I've really enjoyed this podcast. Lots of stories and the interviews have been interesting. A good one to start with is Man vs. Meatloaf. The interviews are the strongest in my opinion - just a nice conversation and Food52 really has an appreciation for food and cooking that comes through in those interviews. I don't live in NYC and am not really a foodie so everything on the podcast sounds a bit new and interesting to me. Good way to keep in touch with what food writing is like today.

Too pretentious, too whispery
After listening to a few episodes I found the content lacking maturity and experience, yet full of NYC pretension. The vocal style of the host not only sounds like a child (high pitched, quiet and vocal fry), but seriously lacks vocal projection.
