Podcast pick: That's Food

· The Pulse
By Andy Trussler

That's Food is CSJR Radio's foodie podcast that tells "the backstory to food in Edmonton, one meal at a time." Last month, Season 2 hit the airwaves.

The team of hosts includes students Melania Antoszko, Katelin Karbonik, Saveta Cartwright, Simran Pherwani, and Bobby Kainth. Other contributors are musician Doug Hoyer and artist Maaike Lynn, who have both generated original works for the project. Readers may recognize co-producer Chris Chang-Yen Phillips, who was the facilitator of Taproot's People's Agenda listening sessions.

Topics, like the hosts, vary each episode, so those listening can always expect a new palette. Most recently, host and producer Kainth broke down the differences between gourmet and store-bought pastries in Is Cake Really A Piece of Cake?

Other projects by the independent station range from environmental news, to heavy metal, to underground electronica, to LGBTQ news, organ music, and the latest from Eritrea. A registered and volunteer-run non-profit, CJSR broadcasts from an old bank vault in the Students' Union Building basement at the University of Alberta.
