  1. How about a podcasts about all the podcasts you listen to … ONCE and non- Once podcasts … Be sure to post links on your show notes page … that helps your listeners find them easier.

  2. I forgot to mention I have been listening to all your podcast and recommending POP CULTURE DETECTIVES to all my friends in the FACEBOOK groups. THE foodie #7 was particularly good and sparked a lot of conversations.

  3. Love the cooking shows on TV just recently as my DD now has cable TV. . . loved watching Chopped and Cut Throat Kitchen … they are funny. Not nutritious but funny.

    At home I watch PBS but I really get ticked off when the daily shows cook with high fats, sugars and cream things are totally unhealthy. Then for fundraising they have the doctors and nutritionists who talk to older people about how to regain their health by NOT eating the fats, the creams, the sugars etc. Not only is the food unhealthy many of their shows are decade old re-runs. PBS is hypocritical …. they kill you with bad nutrition on a daily basis then make you pay to get the cure from the PBS fundraisers.

    Personally I like shows that teach techniques and the science of cooking . I do find that most cooking shows do not present nutrition and healthy eating and I think that is a shame. I will watch the cooking shows with unhealthy foods but I do not cook their recipes.
