Voices At The Table is a fortnightly food podcast that brings together an eclectic mix of voices across the literary, performance and gastronomic worlds. An evolution of the popular Voices At The Table event series, it aims to look at food from a fresh perspective, exploring both the light and dark side of food culture through stories, poems, novels, essays and plays.
Hosted by writer, editor and At The Table founder Miranda York, and writer and poet Anna Sulan Masing, each episode features readings from the live events with insights and anecdotes (and a lot of snacking!) from Miranda and Anna.
