Good Food 
While this podcast is a bit LA-centric, it has much to offer, whether or not you have a trip to sunny Southern California on the books. The show's host, Evan Kleiman, is a thoughtful and warm interviewer, and segments such as their weekly farmers market report and Summer pie-a-day  series are lighthearted yet informative.

The Food Seen 
Initially, I was a bit put off by the ever-so-slightly pretentious host, Michael Harlan Turkell, who comes off as the quintessential Brooklyn hipster, but I quickly learned to move past this, as his well-researched and extremely thorough interviews with guests like Joe Campanale  (whose episode about wine was both accessible and fascinating), Sara Moulton , and Deb Perelman  are more than worth tuning in to.
NPR Topics: Food 
While not a podcast in the traditional sense, NPR's digest of the food-related segments on their general-interest shows covers a great breadth of content. Stories range from how the humble sweet potato is saving lives in Africa , to interviews with food personalities like Nigella Lawson  and Alton Brown .
Joy the Baker Podcast 
Fans of Joy the Baker  and Shutterbean  will love this podcast for its no-holds-barred take on everything from oyster shucking and hot toddies  to taking smart shortcuts in the kitchen .
