Madrid’s Rastro: A Feast for the Ears

My latest podcast takes you on a sound-rich tour of the Rastro. Using custom built microphones and a special setup, I recorded this in binaural audio, which is incredibly immersive and three dimensional. You’ll feel like you’re there. If you’ve never heard binaural audio recordings before, you’re in for a treat. (To get the effect, you have to wear headphones or earbuds.)

I’d love to hear your comments! Thanks for listening.


Tales of the Levante

My latest podcast is now online. This time, it’s not about food it’s about the wind. Not just any wind, but the infamous Levante. Be prepared to get blown away. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

Pamplona’s Fiesta de San Fermín, the fiesta to end all fiestas, is underway again. Hear about all the insanity in my latest podcast.


Jamón, The Podcast. Part One


My good friend Graham Roumieu, a very accomplished visual artist, made the above illustration for my podcast cover art. (And this one blinks every five seconds. Cool, eh?) I think it’s perfect. Funny but also elegantly simple and incisive. Thank you Graham!

In this first of a two-part series about jamón Iberico de bellota, I talk about the history of pigs and pork with author Mark Essig. If you are a fan of food and history, buy his book (see the affiliate link below). It’s impeccably researched and written in a plain, clear prose style, making it both enjoyable to read as well incredibly informative.

Get a taste of it by hitting play on the podcast link below. I hope you enjoy and thanks for listening!
