a mash-up of radio & food
I spent about twenty minutes this morning looking through various charts and search results and the best I can figure is that there are two types of audio food podcasts that still exist: ones that are not popular enough to crack the top 200 on the charts, and those that haven’t published an episode in at least half a decade. Sometimes they belong to both categories.
My research is hardly complete, of course, but it just strikes me as singularly odd that in a web full of reviews, blog, general information, recipes, and shopping tools, the idea of the food podcast has drifted into the ethereal archives of ancient memory.
There used to be podcasts. I know I used to listen to a short but interesting list of eclectic podcasts that I only discovered because they hovered near the upper levels of the download and popularity charts. I’m not a deep-cuts kind of guy, so they must have been.
