Foodie podcasts provide a source of information. However, this is only possible if you listen to the right ones. There are certainly a ton of great podcasts out there these days, but we decided to look specifically at seven that I think are great listeners when it comes to all things “foodies” and those seven always have what foodies want and appreciate.
For gourmets, food is life. That may seem like a blatant understatement, but it is true. Not only do foodies crave the end product – the food – they also crave the knowledge behind the food, i.e. what it takes to make it, how different restaurants fare in the market and, of course, the lives of celebrity chefs and their rise in the food industry.
Check out these 7 foodie podcasts that are sure to please your little foodie hearts

Levi Dalton, the host, is a former sommelier and we can be sure he understands his business. He speaks with a non-arrogant competence in wine matters and his podcasts are a treat. He has guests who are both “famous and knowledgeable” in the industry, as it says on his website.

Green eggs and Dan
Comedian Dan Ahdoot talks about food on this podcast, specifically about food, life and the concept that, in the end, “you are what you eat”. He has a number of entertaining guests who make this podcast fun and informative, and besides, shouldn’t food and laughter go together?

This is produced in collaboration with the Heritage Radio Network. At the time of this writing, there are a total of 72 episodes and many different chefs, food writers, and perspectives to choose from.
Mike Mitchell and Nick Wiger, two comedians, sit down and talk about chain restaurants. Another mix of comedy and food, and as I said, a perfect combination … like a dessert wine with, say, a wonderful crème brulée?
I don’t know which of the two would be the creme brulee, but they are hilarious indeed and talk about a huge topic that matters to foodies around the world.
Who says foodies are only obsessed with haute gamme? They sure do not, because foodies love fast food chains, and if you do, Guilty Eaters then this podcast is sure to be for you. Just try not to listen with your mouth full; These two will make you laugh shortly after you roll.

An interesting recent episode that can be found on their podcast list, they answer the eternal question: Bottled Water vs. Tap? They published authors to keep their information safe. Certainly an interesting listening experience.
But what to expect from a podcast slogan that says, “Gastropod looks at food through the lens of science and history.”
Moderated by Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley.
And when we talk about catchy slogans, their slogan at The Sporkful is, “It’s not for foodies, it’s for eaters.”
But believe me when I tell you it’s for gourmets. You will definitely love this podcast. Informative and entertaining, it definitely belongs on this list. It is hosted by Dan Pashman.
In a recent episode they had Jake Cohen, the author of “Jew-ish: Reinvented Recipes From A Modern Mensch”. The book translates classic recipes for what the podcast description calls the “Tik-Tok Age”.
Another episode that I’ve particularly enjoyed lately was: Why Actors in Movies Actually Never Eat.
