The choice is yours.

Our host

Stefan Gates has been hosting the Food Matters Live Podcast since its launch in 2019. He is also a BBC presenter, author and food adventurer.  Stefan graduated from Oxford University with a degree in English and worked in TV and film production as well as the BBC’s New Comedy Department before realising that all he really cared about was exploring extraordinary food stories and talking to people about the future of food. 

His advice for partners is to bring excitement, warmth and authenticity to the podcast. His top tips for partner guests include:

  • Tell us what excites you 
  • Don’t be afraid to laugh and be yourself – these podcasts are friendly and relaxed – most should sound like a fascinating discussion in the pub, not a presentation to a client 
  • Explain the real life application for the work you are doing to help bring it to life
  • Leave the audience with a brilliant piece of advice, insight or a prediction for the future
