Food intersects with our lives in more ways than we think. Food52's Burnt Toast podcast chases those stories to give listeners the perfect pieces of snackable dinner-party fodder—all inside of a commute's time. In each episode, host Michael Harlan Turkell explores a different aspect of food culture and community, highlighting the often-surprising past informing what we eat every day, and meeting some of the people shaping food's present and future.
 
A fresh take on dinner: every week real-life sisters Kate and Betsy search out, cook, laugh and compare notes on three new recipes from top food bloggers and websites like Food52 and Epicurious and chat about life in the kitchen. Kate lives in Providence, Rhode Island and cooks for a family of 2 (no kids); Betsy lives in Atlanta and cooks for a family of 5 (three kids in elementary school).
