S5 E4 A Journey Through British Food History
On this week’s episode we dive into British culinary history which only seems fitting given our love of food and cooking. From Regency breakfasts to more dubious Victorian meats, tune in to learn to get to know a negus from a broxy. The Ministry of Food was established during World War II to control the production and rationing of certain foods, like meat and dairy. This led to new products such as powdered milk and eggs, ‘national' bread and flour and pig and chicken clubs. As a YouGov survey of the nation's favourite foods shows: (check the episode Instagram for the results); Britain’s food history has been and continues to be influenced by other countries they conquered and cultures that have been brought to the British Isles. In an homage to one of our favourite podcasts - Table Manners - we couldn’t end the episode without sharing our death row/desert island meals!

S5 E3 British Immigration, the Fabric of British Society Part 2
Continuing our conversation Immigration in British culture, this week’s episode picks up where we left off in Part 1 with us sharing our families’ experiences of immigration. In Part 2, Janice shares her experience of the handover in Hong Kong in 1997. The Windrush scandal made headlines a few years ago in Britain which saw hundreds of Caribbean immigrants working and living in the UK wrongly targeted by immigration enforcement. The impact post-war migration, like the Windrush generation, had on rebuilding Britain as we know it today is undeniable. However it got us thinking about our experience of racism in the UK, whether we are desensitised to it and if we feel foreign. A hilarious sidebar into mispronunciations of our names ensued….Get in touch with us at email@example.com and follow us on Instagram @culturallyspeakingpodcast!
