Did you know that I make a podcast called Local Mouthful? Each week, my friend and co-host Joy Manning and I sit down at my dining room table or hers, and spend half an hour talking about a wildly broad range of food topics (including things like cookbooks, favorite seasonal ingredients, how to reclaim your kitchen routine, homemade pizza, and much more).
Part of what makes Local Mouthful unique is the fact that Joy and I have known one another for a very long time. We met back in 2003, when we worked together at a non-profit in the Philadelphia. We were both lowly assistants and ended up bonding over our shared misery. I left the job, we lost touch for awhile, and when we reconnected, we’d both stumbled into food writing jobs. We’ve been friends ever since.
Each episode of Local Mouthful is about half an hour long. You can listen directly on the website, or you can subscribe via iTunes or whichever other podcast app you most enjoy. It’s great company for walks, commutes, or any time you want some cheerful voices with you while you make dinner. Hopefully you’ll check it out!
