The Comfort Food Podcast

Comfort Food is the podcast about the joys (and meltdowns) of feeding our families and feeding ourselves. It’s about dealing with picky eaters. It’s about fighting back against diet culture. It’s about food — and that means it’s also about feminism, families and life.

You can listen to our first three episodes right now! Then stay tuned, because we’ll be dropping a new episode every week. So if  you’re already a podcast listener and you don’t want to miss an episode, just subscribe (for free!) in iTunesStitcherGoogle PlayTuneIn Radio, or wherever else you get your podcasts. If you’re new to podcasts, don’t worry! All of the episode links, with more details and links and photos, can be found through our show notes. And we’ll tell you everything you need to know to start listening, below.
