Hi. I’m Alton Brown and on my podcast which, oddly enough is called The Alton Browncast, I spend time chatting with a wide array of fascinating folk from chefs to authors, scientists to makers and just about anyone in-between, most of which are way more famous than me. This is old-school conversation kids, free of the sales pitches, political agendas, slick production and painstaking research that sucks the life out of humble web projects like this.
