    Gastropod looks at food from the perspective of science and history. The podcast is nicely designed and is produced and presented by Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley, who are both journalists with an academic background in the sciences. Witty and stimulating in equal measure and with an archive going back to 2014, there are two episodes a month, each one a mixture of short items and longer in-depth reports. Episodes have covered caffeine, fungi, alcohol consumption, the calorie as a unit of energy and snails. Each podcast comes with notes, and is often accompanied by stills and short videos. The podcasts are available on Soundcloud, iTunes and as RSS feeds.

    A portal which helps people to ‘find great podcasts’. Curated by Max Temkin and Veronica Corzo-Duchardt, the site presents a selection of mainly American podcasts, arranged under a number of topics, including Tech, Science & Education, Politics & Econ and Storytelling. An Interview page features transcripts of question and answer sessions with podcasters, writers, designers and other culturally-aware, creative people, who talk about their favourite podcasts, and why (and how) they like listening to them. The site works well because its focus is fairly narrow: the emphasis is on curation, and presenting a carefully selected range of interesting podcasts, rather than a comprehensive but overwhelming list of resources.
