Proof is a new podcast from America’s Test Kitchen, hosted by Bridget Lancaster. It goes beyond recipes and cooking to investigate the foods we love (such as deep-fried oreos and tiki drinks) and don’t love (like once-in-vogue celery and the meteoric rise of the grain bowl). We ask the big questions (where do food cravings come from?) and uncover the hidden backstories that feed your food-obsessed brain. Proof solves food mysteries, one story at a time.
New episodes air weekly on Thursdays.

In a deep dive into “prepper” culture, we learn what makes up the ultimate survival cuisine. We investigate the motivation of this subculture that stocks up on non-perishables for the end-of-times. Should the desire to survive be reduced to a quirky paranoia, or is the quest to prepare for survival in dire circumstances more noble than we give it credit for?PLAY NOW

Mezcal has recently enjoyed a spike in popularity, which brought a welcome surge to the Oaxacan economy, the southern Mexican state where Mezcal is produced. But is the demand for Mezcal outgrowing the supply? What can be done to ensure it survives for years to come without sacrificing the agave plants and land that sustain it? Can mezcal avoid becoming the next tequila?PLAY NOW
