A new podcast called PlanetPotato from the team that brings you World Potato Markets has gone live.
“For many the potato is a comfort food – and comfort is something we all need now, which is why the time seemed right to launch our new podcast,” said World Potato Market’s Cedric Porter.
“In it, we take a look at every aspect of the potato’s impact, from the cultural to the culinary, the political to the poetic, offering listeners a lively, surprising look at one of the world’s favourite foods.”
The first episode features food historian Professor Rebecca Earle on the potato as a rebel crop, a look at its current role in spreading the social-distancing message, and a soothing recitation of the poetic names of potato varieties.
“PlanetPotato is not primarily aimed at potato experts but for people all round the world who love the potato and want to know more about it,” said Cedric.
“We are encouraging all those in the potato industry to share the podcast as widely as possible with their contacts, customers, friends and family, to champion the potato as a fascinating food staple that can nourish mind, body and spirit! We are also looking for ideas, feedback and contributions.”
