Getting Back Into Podcasts (Part 2)

Since my last post on Getting Back into Podcasts, I have added more to my listening collection as I really enjoy podcasts again and finding new ones to listen to.

I am really enjoying these, I listen in the car on my back and forth to work. I also have them on at work while I tidy the shop etc

These are ones that I would recommend, so please do let me know if you tried them or now subscribed.


More of my Subscriptions…

Luca’s Italy

Do you want to know the stories behind your favourite Italian dishes? With this podcast you can! Join Anglo-Italian food writer Luca Marchiori as he shares a weekly slice of his lifelong love and enthusiasm for the cooking of his native country. In each episode he explores the history of a different Italian food from its origins to the present day. And you’ll discover plenty of fun facts and fascinating figures along the way.

I have always had a place in my heart for Italy, as I used to go there every year with my parents or friends till I met my now ex….who showed me other parts of the world.

I saw this and had to subscribe as I wanted to learn more than what little I already knew of Italy and its culture.

Luca is great with detail giving you just the right amount of information that keeps you interested from start to finish.

Rice to Meet You

As featured in The Guardian and Apple Podcasts’ New and Noteworthy, Rice To Meet You is a comedy podcast about Asian culture that’s accessible to everyone!

Join UK-based comedians Nigel Ng and Evelyn Mok as they talk to notable guests about the modern Asian experience.

I started to watch Nigel Ng on YouTube where is is Uncle Rodger and to be honest that really introduced me to him (Nigel).

I did a search for him on my podcast app and found this, and have listened to many episodes now.

Apple Bitz XL

Apple Bitz XL is everything good and bad inside the world of Apple from tech host Brian Tong. He brings on special guests and gives his raw honest take while having fun after covering and working for Apple for over 15 years.

I have watched Brian for a good few years way back when he was on CNET, and now he has is own YouTube channel.

Brian is very fun to watch and at the same time very informative, and very honest with any of his reviews or news.

A Conversation With…

A podcast by Philip DeFranco.

Another person I have followed on YouTube is Phil, his show is another one I watch in the morning while having breakfast. He is just great to watch, again very informative, a good laugh and just entertaining.

Check out his YouTube channel to, I am sure you will be hooked.

If you missed my first post please do check it out as there are some more great shows to subscribe to on that blog post.

Fratelli’s (Cambuslang, Glasgow) takeaway via FoodHub : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at FoodHub gifted me with a wee voucher to order a meal and again check out their app.

The app is just like your other takeaway ordering apps, see my other review here

I wanted to try another place I have not used for a while, so I opted for Italian tonight.

The Food

I have ordered a takeaway from here a good few years ago, and enjoyed it at that point and as I said I felt like an Italian tonight so thought would check them out again.

Drink

187ml Pinot Grigio White £3.25

I am not a big wine drinker, it is an area I would like to learn more about so I cant go into loads of details about this.

For me this was very nice, light and worked perfect with my meal tonight.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Main Course :

Spaghetti Carbonara £7.80

Carbonara can be done two ways, the good way and the bad way with cream….this I was very happy to see was done the good way.

This was really good! the flavour and everything about it was really nice.

It was a massive portion, as I ate 2/3’s of the portion as it was very filling.

I would have this again.

  • Flavour : 5

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Desert :

Biscoff Cheesecake £4.95

My eyes are always bigger than my belly….as the saying goes….and I had to check out this cake as Biscoff anything is ALWAYS really nice.

So after my Carbonara I waited a while till I wasnt feeling as full, and started to eat this.

This was really nice, I liked the flavour and texture.

Firstly a big thanks to FoodHub again, the service from the app just like the last few times has been perfect!

Service and food from Fratelli’s was really good, I was very impressed with the quality and the portion size.

I have no issued recommending either FoodHub App (IOS & Android) and Fratelli’s.

So I had to order a cheesecake or two, and while I was at it a random choice of sweets as I needed a sweet tooth fix tonight.

The sweets

 Reece’s Belgian Waffle

I have only recently found out that I am not allergic to peanuts, and now have a wee addiction to anything Reece’s so when I saw this I had to order it.

On opening the packaging the smell was soo good, and visually mmm so much so my mouth started to water.

Regular Oreo Cookie Sundee

Another fav of mine are Oreo’s and when I saw they did this, I had to place an order and see what it was like.

I dug right into this as soon as I took the photo, the crunchiness of the Oreo’s, the ice-cream, the sauces mmmmm a perfect combo.

Terry’s Orange Cookie Dough

Two of my favs coming together, Terrys orange and cookie dough surely this couldnt fail?

I could have had many many many more servings of this, as it was just so so good.

I will be getting this again soon!!

Churros with Chocolate Sauce

This always reminds me of going to a Christmas market, as this is something I tend to get as the smell always pulls me in.

These were just as you would expect, slightly crunchy, sugary, soft centre and very mmm

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Regular Bounty Milkshake

I saw this and thought why not, lets see what its like.

I love bounty bars, so I thought this should be just like them?

I was a little disappointed as it didn’t have a great Bounty flavour, just a subtle one but it was still nice.

Chocolate Fudge Cake

I have not had chocolate fudge cake in ages, I dont know why as there was a period where this is all I would get.

This nice and warm with cream was so good, and I remembered why I loved getting this so much.

Strawberry Cheesecake

I had to order a cheesecake so I did and this is what I got.

You cant go wrong with a strawberry cheesecake, thats all I can say as its just so nice 🙂
