Fermentations Podcast was conceived and began development in mid-2017 with a desire to have a conversation about food through the lens of intersectional perspectives. Fermentations explores stories from and around the food/beverage industries; both beleaguered, classist landscapes struggling to respond or address rampant sexism, racism, classism and cultural appropriation. Keeping with the light and zesty discourse, we also explore topics like food insecurity, diet/wellness culture, corporate food/economics and of course, how shit Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay are. After a successful first season, Fermentations returns for a second season in 2019.
Fermentations is produced between Scotland and Sweden by:
