    Temporary unavailable ?
    I keep trying to listen the the last two episodes and it just says temporarily unavailable 😭. I live in Paris France but I can access all my other American podcasts. I don’t get it

    So fun!
    Fantastic companion to the TV show, I learn even more and it’s a fun, “snackable” podcast I can listen to with my kids. Excited to see what comes next!

    Episodes don’t play anymore
    I loved the TV show and looked forward to the podcast. I had no trouble playing the intro and first episode, but now no matter which device or OS I try I just get errors, the episodes won’t play. All my other podcasts play so I believe it’s a feed issue. I do hope they fix it soon as I would love to listen.
    Love the podcast!
    My son wrote research paper on Coca Cola in the 8th grade. Listening to this podcast takes me back a few years. I really enjoyed the few more details the podcast provides.

    Who knew
    Who knew food could be so captivating?! A great podcast - now I’m hungry.

    Ok but too many distracting noises
    I like the subject matter but the foley sound work is totally unnecessary, distracting, and annoying. The tone throughout the show is inconsistent. I tried to listen while going to bed and found I had to regularly turn the volume up or down for comfortable levels.

    Who knew 19th century Americans had such terrible diets? Love the cereal episode

    So far so good
    Excellent narration, sound, and thorough, entertaining coverage of topic. I love learning about the food system and barons who shaped it!

    Very interesting
    This is a very interesting series. It’s pace is a little too slow and the listener has to put up with annoying music regularly. It often feels like they are trying to stretch twenty minutes of information into a thirty minute show. Needs some editing.

    Amazingly well told!
    Especially interesting that Coca Cola was a moral booster for the military!

    Tasty, Delicious and Addictive
    OZY’s done it AGAIN! I’m a fan for life!! What a tantalizingly scrumptious podcast. The way all the juicy bits of facts from the past are interwoven— create a tapestry of history that’s not been explored before. This is the way to learn history, being entertained while simultaneously being enlightened. Double bang for your buck!

    Content is good, host is tough to listen to
    I really enjoyed the content and style of the episode, but the host is too monotone. For a light hearted topic, the host takes a serious tone with little excitement making for a difficult listen.

    10/10 show!
    I love everything that comes out of the history channel team. This show is no exception!
  • Leilani Little
    Food for thinking!
    This is such a great topic. Leave it to Sean Braswell to come up with it! His podcasts are awesome!
  • Derp Bean
    The first episode abt Coke is cool! I knew it was originally made with cocaine but I had no idea how. It was informative but not overly long. It was interesting but not drawn out. I like it!
  • Nick Dresky
    Another great podcast from OZY
    I’ve loved all of OZY’s podcasts in the past, especially The Carlos Watson Show, and they’ve done it again with this fun new collaboration with History!

  • tini:-)
    Sean Braswell is back!
    Every show from the mind of this man is pure gold. Already love this new show!

    Good content, bad host
    Enjoyed the informative content, but the host made for difficult listening. Dour tone, and every single sentence dropped off at the end, to the point that I missed words he got so quiet and hushed. This isn’t a true crime podcast about super serious matters. The podcast would benefit from a more upbeat, happier tone from its host. And a greater variety of inflection.

    The Food That Built America by History Channel
    Great stories of the iconic foods that define American culture. The story of Coca-Cola is fascinating. Can’t wait for the rest of the series to drop!
