The Real Food Chain podcast No.1

The first podcast for The Real Food Chain gave us — co-hosts Rich Bowden and Jon Moore — a chance to say hello and discuss our aims for this new Oz-themed wholefoods show.

We chatted about how wholefoods is really a return to the past of food production. We explore how organic food is not a new concept at all, but a return to the ways our grandparents farmed and ate real food — sans chemicals.

Key quote: Organic food is what they used to call food ~ Jon Moore

In the second half of the show, you can hear me (Rich) talk about who we are aiming at reaching with the website and podcast. The answer is it’s ordinary people, like us. Those of you who are interested in organic foods for health foods but may not be able to afford the premium that organic grocers attract. Or perhaps you need to change your diet to improve your health for medical reasons. Or you may be a young Mum or Dad looking for the best for your kids’ diet but looking at ways to keep costs down.

I talk about our idea of making The Real Food Chain a reference point for anyone interested in real foods but something more. I want it to have that distinct Aussie accent. Taking inspiration from around the world yes, but keeping it local for Australians. I add that each podcast will be based on a relevant wholefoods topic and Jon and I will be interviewing guests who will give us an insight into organic food.

Topics we’ll be covering in future podcasts:

  • Fermenting foods
  • Gut health
  • Where to find affordable organic food
  • Growing your own organic produce
  • Cooking with wholefoods
  • Breadmaking
  • Farmers’ markets
  • Heirloom tomatoes
  • And much, much more.

  1. Hello there, I listened to the podcast on the way home and did enjoy it. Love to buy organic food and am a hopeless gardener, so all encouragement welcome.

    I’d love your site to have an email signup so that I’d receive new blog posts. I’m terrible at checking Facebook. I have used Mailchimp for years and it’s free up to 2000 emails so highly recommend it.

    1. Hi Seana,

      Thanks for your kind reply! We’re still feeling our way with the podcast but it really is fun. Thought of doing one yourself? Email signup is a great idea, thanks for the feedback.
