I see a lot of negative reviews based on what the show used to be compared to what it is now. As a new listener I can’t compare but I really enjoy Francis as a host. Fun, light hearted and I don’t mind the occasional intersection with politics and culture. It seems to me a lot of the people who are upset are of an older generation and don’t like the fact that food and food culture is inherently political. Great podcast imo.

Seems like there is more emphasis on chefs and the restaurant scene. Spent 20 years on 3rd shift and rarely spent time going out to eat. I’m more interested in cooking at home and the podcast doesn’t seem to cover that as much anymore. He’s a great host and the topics are interesting but it’s not what I’m into.
