The Sporkful



The Sporkful is a James Beard Award-nominated podcast and blog where we discuss, debate and obsess over ridiculous food minutiae in search of new and better ways to eat. It's created and hosted by Dan Pashman.

Each audio podcast covers a very specific issue, whether it's the ideal shape for tortilla chips, best practices in butter-to-pancake application, or barriers to structural integrity in sandwich engineering. We like to say, "It's not for foodies, it's for eaters."
