About Smart Mouth

I'm Katherine Spiers, the former food editor at LA Weekly and longtime journalist (Seattle Times, LA Times, Associated Press, Gawker Media and more). Smart Mouth is my food history podcast - don't worry, it's not stuffy.

Every week I have a different guest on - Danny Trejo, Gail Simmons, Jacques Pepin, Flula Borg, Tawny Newsome, you name 'em - and we talk about the story behind one of their favorite foods. I can usually blow their minds with at least one little-known fact.

I'm excited about creating Smart Mouth and hope to turn all our listeners into food experts. And sometimes, sometimes the show is even funny.

If you want, think of it as contributing to independent journalism. I do many hours of research for every episode - not just about food, but sociology, underreported events in history, botany ... you get the picture. Come join!
Goals
$354.06 of $700 per month
When I reach $700 per month, I'll do a three-part podcast miniseries with Patrons as guests.
