BEST FOOD PODCAST James Beard Awards, Webby Awards

About The Sporkful

Since launching in 2010, The Sporkful has won the James Beard Award, Webby Award, and Saveur Award for Best Food Podcast. Each week on the show, we use humor and humanity to approach food from many angles, including science, history, identity, culture, economics, and lengthy debates on the best way to layer peanut butter and jelly in a sandwich. We like to say it's not for foodies, it's for eaters.

The Sporkful is produced in partnership with Stitcher. Subscribe today in StitcherApple PodcastsSpotify, or wherever you listen!
