About the Show

From street food in Thailand to a bakery in a Syrian refugee camp to how one scientist uses state of the art pollen analysis to track the origins of honey (and also to solve cold murder cases), Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Radio goes anywhere and everywhere to ask questions and get answers about cooking, food, culture, wine, farming, restaurants, literature, and the lives and cultures of the people who grow, produce, and create the food we eat. With a four-star cast of contributors including Sara Moulton (long-time public television host and cookbook author), Adam Gopnik (contributing writer for The New Yorker), Stephen Meuse (wine writer and expert), Dan Pashman (host of The Sporkful podcast) and host Christopher Kimball (founder of Cook’s Magazine, long-time public TV and radio host, and founder of Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street), Christopher Kimball’s Milk Street Radio made its debut on public radio on October 22, 2016. It is distributed by PRX and recorded in the studios of WGBH in Boston, Massachusetts.

Pitch Us Your Story

Radio producers, storytellers, writers. Pitch us.

Our show is committed to bringing listeners to every part of the globe with an ear to food as it serves a larger story, problem, or question. Pitches should use food and cuisine as a starting point, conclusion, or vehicle for a larger story about something much more universal. This is broad. Use it to your advantage.

This is your chance to showcase out-of-the-box, hard-to-find stories, chefs, cooks, and culinary events that aren’t being covered anywhere else. We’re open to pitches for all types of audio stories, not just reported pieces per se.

If this sounds interesting to you, write in to us at, including the following:

  • A short bio about your audio reporting background
  • A brief pitch (no more than 300 words)
  • How you’ll incorporate field recording
  • Links to samples of your past work
