PCFG Deep Dish Podcast – Episode 1: Irish Soda Bread!

After months of teasing and procrastination, PCFG is finally unveiling its new project, the Poor Couple’s Food Guide Deep Dish Podcast! Tired of informative murder porn shows? Getting sick of all your podcasts being about serial killers? Listen to Meg and Erik give you a crash course on food history! Each episode focuses on a specific food or dish and takes a deep-dive look at its origins, history, and how it developed into the modern version we know it as today.

This show is in early stages of creation so for now we’re doing a preliminary trial run of 5 episodes. If you like them, let us know on social media and we’ll keep making them!

In the premiere episode of PCFG Deep Dish Podcast, Erik and Meg take a look at Irish Soda Bread. Discover the origins of this humble, easy, little bread loaf, and how it came to become a St. Patrick’s Day favorite!
