edacious (edacious – /iˈdāSHəs/ – adjective. Of, relating to, or given to eating. From the Latin edere, to eat. Synonyms: voracious – gluttonous – ravenous – greedy – piggish.)

Charlottesville, Virginia, like many other communities has hyperactive social media when it comes to food. Too often this results in folks talking ABOUT rather than talking WITH one another.Edacious attempts to bridge that gap, to create connection and strengthen community. To move the focus away from the pretty Instagrammed plate and toward the hardworking individuals doing the WORK OF FOOD in our restaurants, on our farms, in our stores, and around our conference tables.

This is a podcast for enthusiasts, chefs, producers and purveyors, as well as anyone ravenous about food in their region. Every other Thursday writer Jenée Libby will bring in someone with food passion to talk, laugh, and promote general food hijinks. By fostering connection, we celebrate the bounty that exists not only in our hometown, but throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia and the rest of the country. Hopefully, she won’t piss off too many people. But then that wouldn’t be any fun, would it?

I've got big dreams for this podcast! First one is to just break even because unfortunately items like podcast hosting and editing are not free. Monthly fees end up being around $100/month. Add things like mailing lists, web design, and entrance fees to festivals and the money crunch is clearly felt!

Ultimate goal? To have a podcast truck to take on location for live broadcasts. To hire a network of other podcasters to gather and share every story of every person doing the WORK OF FOOD in our region. Big dreams. Help me make them happen. Help me make our food community even stronger than it is. Thank you.

LIVE PODCAST EXPERIENCE!
I'll work with you to design your very own food-related podcast episode. Do you teach cooking classes? Live-record the experience. Enjoy beer? Design a live tasting episode. Gather some friends and create a food experience of a lifetime that will forever live on in audio form! You're only limited by your own imagination. 
  • No need to be a food professional to participate. I'll help corral local experts to join us! The only requirement is you be edacious about food, drink, and great communal gatherings!
  • Any local business, event, or nonprofit you support, not necessarily food-related, will receive three ad mentions during the podcast: 1) 30 seconds at the beginning; 2) 1 minute between the intro and the interview; and 3) 20 seconds at the end.
  • The $500 sponsorship cost is HALF PRICE of what I charge to sponsor a full episode.
  • You will also receive one PAY IT FORWARD Community-based sponsorship model. 
  • You will also receive every reward listed under the lower levels of sponsorship.
  • This level of sponsorship not only helps cover monthly expenses, but will expand the podcast reach in a major way. Thank you.
