Join Sarah and Becca as they use their backgrounds in nutrition and criminology to discuss fascinating food-related scandals using an evidence-based lens. If you like learning about crime, drama, poison, fraud, bias, nutrition, and food, this is the podcast for you.
We’ve covered all sorts of food-related crime, scandal, and fraud on the podcast so far, all of which can be found on our Dietetics After Dark website. Everything from Halloween candy tampering and the European horsemeat scandal to the McDonald’s hot coffee lawsuit and the Mexican avocado cartels! We also cover nutrition in the news every second week through a mini-segment called Extra Cheese.
Becca and I met thanks to our mutual love for true crime podcasts. Becca had an online profile posted for a new job where she said she spends most of her free time walking her dog and binging true crime podcasts, and I read it and immediately reached out to say “ME TOO!”. After discovering our mutual favourite podcast was My Favorite Murder, we knew we had to create a project of our own.
We set out to create a podcast where we could discuss the weird, scandalous, and sometimes criminal stories from the nutrition and food world. We take every opportunity to educate listeners about nutrition concepts, food science, and media literacy, and do our best to offer a fair, unbiased approach to each story.
Tip #1 when designing a podcast: choose something you can research and talk about A LOT. Becca and I could talk about food and true crime for hours (literally) so this podcast is a perfect fit!
