heatstories came out of my long engagement with hot spices (some of which can be seen at ChiliCult).

In learning about them, I got to know many interesting people, discovered many fascinating stories, heard a fair bit about their history – but found no podcasts about all of that.

There are only a few episodes in the many food-related podcasts.

Time to change that, I thought, especially given my current work for the World Chilli Alliance, to promote recognition of the chilli’s many roles.

And so, here comes heatstories.
