We're the East Coast Wine Geeks. We come from a variety of business backgrounds, but on weekend nights, we use our time and talent to taste and review wines, eat good food, and provide a running commentary on the state of the world. We're a bunch of geeks from a small western Pennsylvania town, not professional wine critics. Your opinion is as good as ours, but ours is funnier

The Main Ingredient is a new podcast for food geeks! Through the use of immersive audio techniques, creative field research and offbeat humor, we explore the history and chemistry behind the foods we take for granted, the cultivation and love that goes into producing them, and the various culinary techniques that allow them to sing on your plate. So much more than your average cooking show, we concentrate less on recipes and more on, well, ingredients! Much like the farm to table movement, each episode will take you on the journey of one notable edible, from inception to ingestion!

Amanda and Jean Ann are here to dish the real "dirt" about gardening...'cause the truth is, if you aren't having fun, you aren't doing it right.

Embrace the perfection of imperfection and know that your gardening truly is good enough!
