  • Summary

  • The Diaspora Food Stories podcast will explore the stories behind the creators from the African Diaspora, furthering the mission of The Global Food and Drink Initiative to connect Black people through food, drink and travel. Listeners can expect conversations that go deep into the history and origins of our foods and how they have shaped cultures, communities and the world. In addition, Diaspora Food Stories will be the first food podcast to offer these stories in the native tongue of our guests, thereby adding another important element to the preservation of our food and drink stories; the language in which they are introduced.
