The show is mostly entertaining and insightful but often times the music is just intrusive to the general feel of the podcast. It's usually in your face and too extended between sets. Also at times the hosts can be a bit much with their strong opinions and banter. Otherwise, it's mostly enjoyable.

Best food podcast !
