Food Matters Live’s food podcast Table Talk has made 200 episodes since its launch in 2019, and is marking the occasion with a series of five new mini-episodes.
The episodes feature a selection of experts, innovators and familiar faces who have all helped to make Table Talk the success that it is today, as well as being high-flying figures in the food and drink industry.
Featured in the series are: Andrew Ive, founder of investment firm Big Idea Ventures, Anna Taylor, Executive Director of the Food Foundation, Barry Smith, Founding Director of the Centre for the Study of Senses, Derek Sarno, co-founder of vegan brand Wicked Healthy, and Ria Rehberg, CEO of Veganuary.
In the spirit of 2021, a year that was full of the unexpected, Table Talk host Stefan Gates hands over the microphone to each guest, getting them to reveal ‘the good, the bad, and the ugly’ of the past 12 months, as well as what they’re looking forward to most this year.
Over the past three years, Table Talk has gathered a community of over 90,000 listeners, gaining around 3,000 new ones from over 70 different countries each month.
A new Food Matters Live podcast series, Career Conversations, is being launched on 21 January 2022.
