We—Nicky and Cynthia and our part-time producer, Claudia—research, report, and produce everything you hear (and see, here on the website) ourselves. We rely on listener support, so we need you to give if you can. If you enjoy what we’re doing and want to help us keep making the show you love, please donate today. Any amount makes a difference.

Advertise with us

Podcasts are hot. 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.
