A podcast for foodies...Works For Me Wednesday


This month I officially joined the 21st century. No, I didn't join Facebook. No, I still don't tweet. I bought one of these...
...an iPod Shuffle. Yes, I feel quite cool. Actually, I'm not cool. There's no music on it.

Here's what I discovered...podcasts of The Splendid Table. I've never actually heard The Splendid Table on NPR, but I am so, so happy to have found the podcasts.

They are a food lovers' dream radio show. If I had my way there would be a talk radio station devoted to this 24/7. The Splendid Table's topics are so interesting...I know you'll love them!

The host, Lynne Rossetto Kasper, is just the person you'd want to have over for dinner. She obviously has a wealth of knowledge about food, but she's unpretentious about it. Lynne's funny, smart and brings food to life through the radio. She keeps me walking and riding my bike longer and that's saying something. If I'm going to be making (and eating) these and this and this, I NEED all the extra exercise minutes I can get. :)

The Splendid Table podcasts Work For Me. How about you? Any podcasts on your iPod?


For this week's roundup of Works For Me Wednesday ideas, go to We Are THAT Family. Some of my previous WFMW posts include:

  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my shuffle. I love how little it is. I love how it clips onto anything. I love how inexpensive it was compared to the other ipods out there.

    Enjoy using it!!

  3. Yay for the ipod shuffle! you will love it... and the splendid table is great. you would really like her cookbook, i bet, too. I have subscribed to her weekly email recipe for years and finally got the book when it came out: _How to Eat Supper_. Try the grape supper tart first if you get it! So good!

  4. You know, I've never been able to get podcasts to load on my Shuffle. I kind of assumed that they just didn't and didn't get bent out of shape about it as I've got two other iPods that work just swimmingly. The Shuffle, really, is just for the gym.

    I do, however, love Podcasts. In particular: This American Life, Car Talk, Marketplace, Savage Love, The Rachel Maddow Show, and Countdown. I don't have a television, so I rely on podcasting to give me my daily dose of the world's news... well, or supplement my Internet news addiction.

  12. We have NPR on in the house ALL long(for the animals).
    Love the Splendid Table Show and This American Life.
    And I don't have an ipod. So I guess you're ahead of me technologically!!

  13. The Splendid Table is great -- also on my Shuffle are KCRW's Good Food (about 45 minutes long per week -- a Santa Monica broadcast, but surprisingly interesting for me in NC), Bob Edwards Weekend, Wait, Wait..Don't Tell (NPR humor), Slate's Spoiler Alert, Things you should have learned in History class, and much more...Have fun!

  14. I love the Splendid Table. And I also listen to A Way With Words which is fascinating.

  15. Correction -- KCRW's program is Mouthful, not Good Food (maybe that's another one?)....

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yes, Good Food is on KCRW and is a close second favorite of mine to Splendid Table. Also good is Hidden Kitchens.
