Did you miss us? (We missed you!)
First off, the news... We're happy to announce that after three wonderful years at WNYC, The Sporkful is coming to Stitcher. We're joining Katie Couric, The Longest Shortest Time, Stranglers, and more as part of a new slate of podcasts produced by Stitcher. We're super excited about it!
We debut on April 17, and we have a bunch of great new shows coming your way -- check out this trailer for a sneak preview!
First up, actor and comedian Kumail Nanjiani (below) reveals some of his traumatic food experiences and tells us why he thinks all Islamophobes should be forced to try Pakistani food.
"I mean our food is so good," he says. "How could you hate us after you eat our food?"
After that we’ll explore the history of a pancake recipe found in Rosa Parks's personal documents, and we’ll go behind the scenes of a new Off Broadway production of the play Sweeney Todd. (Spoiler alert: the pies are made of people!!!)
Plus, Peter Sagal of NPR's Wait Wait ... Don’t Tell Me shares his favorite cocktails. Writer Lindy West talks about being fat-shamed when she goes out to eat. And we trace the story of a beloved local sandwich shop in Aleppo, Syria.
It all starts when The Sporkful joins Stitcher. Subscribe to the Sporkful today in Stitcher or wherever you get your podcasts.
