Fall’s arrival is accompanied by colorful leaves and cool weather, as well as a new season of food podcasts here at HRN. This episode of Meat and Three is jam-packed with sneak peeks into our newest series. We’ll journey across the U.S. and around the world with chefs, entrepreneurs, and a former state senator. Each show is dedicated to giving us a taste of a unique and rich corner in the world of food. 

The first destination for exploration is the Midwest where we’ll learn about what has influenced the cuisine there with Eat Your Heartland Out. We’ll travel south to investigate the origins of soul food in Soul by Todd Richards. After, we’ll discover the intricacies of agave spirit production by crossing our southern border into México with Agave Road Trip. Journeying across continents, lastly, we consider the importance of African representation in food media on Item 13. Put on your traveling gear, because this episode is quite the ride!
