Gastropod began as a labor of love. Co-hosts Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley knew there was a great podcast waiting to happen, all about food, science, and history, so they decided to start making it and figure out the rest later. This page is the beginning of later.
We research, report, and produce everything you hear (and see, here on the website) ourselves. If you enjoy what we’re doing and would like to help out, there are a handful of great ways to support us:
This is one place where your donation of any size really will be noticed. It’s not tax-deductible, but it is most certainly appreciated! We use Stripe to process your credit card information; they’re used by Kickstarter, Squarespace, Instacart, Fitbit, and many others, for seamless and secure online transactions.
To stop your monthly donation at any time, email us at contact AT gastropod DOT com and we will cancel it right away.
You can also pledge to support us per episode on Patreon. And we have a special new reward—a private newsletter crammed with extra snippets, recipes, and stories from each episode—for those of you who support Gastropod with a gift of $5 or more per episode ($9 per month). Don’t miss out!

Advertise with us
Podcasts are hot right now. And many advertisers—and analysts—say that advertising works particularly well on podcasts, because it’s such an intimate, personal format. Our listeners are an amazing group: curious, smart, passionate, committed, and growing. If you work for a company that might want to reach them, we’d love to talk with you. Listen to an example of the type of unique, brand-appropriate spot we craft with our sponsors and then get in touch by emailing us at contact AT gastropod DOT com.
