Two food related podcasts: The Foodie Project & Food Network Obsessed
I am new to the world of podcasts and podcasting. I may be late to the party, but at least I made it!
I recently started a podcast of my own, and I call it, The Foodie Project. Until this point, I have talked about all things food-related, from my favorite products to cheesecakes and tasty coffee tips.
My plan is to talk with chefs, bakers, and foodies about their stories and favorite foods. After I decided to start interviewing others for the podcast, I had the idea to search for other food-related podcasts to see what type of information they were sharing.
That is when I found it. I found Obsessed, the Food Network podcast. Jaymee Syre is the host. She is knowledgeable, personable, and entertaining. She has a way with those she has as guests and keeps the conversation fluid and relatable.
Now, instead of working on my podcast, I am always listening to hers!
Each episode is about 45 to 50 minutes, and nothing is left off the table. Jaymee discusses food, family, and success with her guests.
I have not listened to all of the episodes yet, but my favorites are from Carla Hall and Amanda Freitag so far. They both encouraged me and allowed me to realize that celebrities are real people with real feelings, successes, and failures.
Creating a Food Network podcast was a brilliant idea. As listeners, we enjoy getting to know our favorite cooks and chefs we see on our favorite Food Network shows.
Let's take a look at the episodes that have been released to date:

I listen to Obsessed in the car with my seven-year-old daughter, and we both enjoy it. It's clean, entertaining, and about food, which makes this podcast versatile and perfect for listeners of any age.
Isn't it funny how food brings people together on so many levels. So when you are struggling to find something you have in common with another person, just change the subject to food!
