About This List

Each week I publish the most Delicious Ingredients of my Audible Feast ... the scrumptious, delectable, savory, rich, sweet, spicy, and best podcasts that have fed my ears over the last week. They're listed in no particular order. You can see what I've been listening to here: to see the competition these shows beat out to earn their spot as the best of the best. The past week, I listened to 29 episodes for this podcast review recap - 4 new shows for me this time, one of which made it on the list below, including Honorable Mentions.
