‘What’s inside it?’ asked the Mole, wriggling with curiosity.
‘There’s cold chicken inside it,’ replied the Rat briefly;

‘O stop, stop,’ cried the Mole in ecstacies: ‘This is too much!’

Created by a historian and a food writer, Devouring Time is a podcast about food and eating through the ages. What did ancient meals actually taste like? Does human taste like Spam? Do we eat better today than Shah Jahan? Were foodies this annoying 1000 years ago?  And why do oysters make us feel so sexy? Plus, Experts! Booze! Historic feasts! And many, many digressions about sandwiches. So, take that brisket out of the over and tune in. Just don't listen hungry.
