Dan Pashman is the James Beard and Webby Award-winning creator and host of The Sporkful. He launched the podcast in 2010 after getting laid off from six radio jobs in eight years. At that point he knew he had to either find a way to make a living making a podcast, or go to law school.
In 2021 Dan released cascatelli, a new pasta shape that he invented. He told the story of his three-year quest to create this shape in a series on The Sporkful called Mission: ImPASTAble. The series and pasta were featured by the NY Times, NPR, CBS This Morning, People Magazine, Access Hollywood, and more.
Dan is also the creator and host of Cooking Channel's You're Eating It Wrong and a contributor to NPR and Milk Street Radio. Dan and his work have been featured on The Today Show, Radiolab, Guy's Grocery Games, NPR's Morning Edition, WTF with Marc Maron, Planet Money, Beat Bobby Flay, Freakonomics Radio, and more. Prior to launching The Sporkful Dan was a producer and reporter at NPR, Sirius XM, and Air America Radio. He lives outside New York City with his wife and two daughters.
